Benedict: Take Joy in the Good of our Separated Brethren
Quote: You statements doesn't follow. You're reading into Benedict things he isn't saying.
I'm QUOTING him.  "profound communion".  What are you talking about?

Quote:  Explain how ecumenism makes any sense if the Pope thinks that the divisions aren't real? Everybody knows about the divisions, it's just maybe they want to take a positive approach, or not bog themselves down with petty issues, or simply see that many of these issues are solved if they are successful, i.e., picking your battles.
  Non-sequitur.  Yes, everyone knows that a Lutheran is not a Catholic.  THE issue, is the recognition that these same Lutherans are completely outside of the Church, they preach heresy, and they are going to hell.  And there is no way a Catholic can think, do, or say anything in a "spirit of profound communion" with an "eccleisal group" that drags people to hell.  THAT is the issue.
