Poor Pope!

Well, the Pope went and done it, and he done it good!

I realize that the Catholic Church is a two thousand year old institution, and they don't change fast, but this is the sort of idiotic, archaic thinking that I rant and rave about in my book "The Plain Truth About God-101" (What the Church doesn't want you to know!)

The Vatican issued a document yesterday restating its belief that the Catholic Church is the only true church of Jesus Christ.

It says although Orthodox churches are true churches, they are defective because they do not recognize the primacy of the Pope. (Ha, see what I mean? He's taking this personally!)

"It follows that these separated churches and communities, though we believe they suffer from defects, are deprived neither of significance nor importance in the mystery of salvation," it said.

The document adds that Protestant denominations — called Christian Communities born out of the Reformation — are not true churches, but ecclesiastical communities.

Well, that's going to be a hell of a disappointment to my Lutheran Mother.

Poor Catholic Church is still pissed because King Henry and Martin Luther gave them a hard time about five hundred years ago.

This is the type of church you want to follow?

Not me!
