In reference to the latest statement of Pope Benedict XIV …

… that “only Catholics make up the true church, while Protestants are merely “Christian communities” and not churches “in the proper sense.” (SOURCE).

I consider this statement arrogant and unacceptable. Religion is supposed to UNITE, not DIVIDE even more! The “we are the only and the best“- attitude certainly does NOT win the hearts of people, what it does is insult and hurt!

Up for discussion …

“The Roman Catholic church teaches that it is the only completely valid church. Its pope is believed to be infallible in certain pronouncements on faith and morals. God prevents him from committing error. But, after Vatican II, the church has recognized that the beliefs of other faith groups and religions contain some validity, at least in those cases where they agree with the Roman Catholic church.” (SOURCE)
