In the “I can’t believe someone actually BELIEVES that” category, the Vatican declared that the Roman Catholic Church is the “only instrument for the salvation of all humanity.” Non-Christian religions were called “gravely deficient” and most non-Catholic Christian religions “suffer from defects” that disqualify them as “churches in the proper sense.” They said the proclamation was addressed mainly to Catholic theologians and was not intended as a slap at other faiths…. isn’t that like trying to infer that theoretically the Catholic Church is primary but that has no basis in “reality”? *grin* Funny – the OTHER religions don’t seem to think of themselves as deficient.
Wait til they all figure out that it’s ALL beliefs – even “rock bed, objective, physical reality” – maybe I should phone the Pope and have a chat with him. ROFLMAO.
