Already in the year 2001 the National Primate Friederich encouraged the protestants, to consider a limited recognition of the Pope as "ecumenically accepted speaker for world Christianity in the service of unity".

Wittenberg (kath.net/KNA/red) An unusual proposal for an Evangelical Churchman: The Bishop of the Evangelical National Church in Baden, Ulrich Fischer, has pronounced on the Primacy of Honor of the Pope even above Evangelical Bishops. In a Celebration of the 450th Anniversary of the Reformer Philipp Melanchthon, he reminded those assembled that even Melanchthon had declared that "the papal Primacy above the Bishops would be recognized by human law." This brought much anger upon the Reformer for his part.

"The recognition of the Primacy of the Pope is, by the way, till today, the most urgent, for the further progress of ecumenical thought," said the advisory member of the Council of the Lutheran Church in Germany (EKD). 15 years before, Pope John Paul II. brought the proposal of the Primacy of the Papacy anew into the ecumenical debate. "Doing an injustice", said Fischer, as the proposal had hardly a positive reaction on the Evangelical side.

This doesn't mean anything more than the constant falsely ecumenical ramblings about "protestant faith communities" we hear from the post-conciliar church....until the Pope is acknowledged as the vicar of christ, a group cannot claim to be catholic, even "by association".  ...despite protests from those very advocates of false ecumenism to the contrary.

The various organizations and political divisions of the  Evangelical Churches in Germany speaks for itself.
Is this dude who's pretending to be a bishop ready to agree on all the statements the Council of Trent made mainly against the Heresyarch  luther? Oh wait the VII "Catholic" Church doesn't believe that either never mind...
