Martin Luther was a ‘teacher of the faith’, say German bishops
#4
People have got to call a spade a spade and call Protestantism out for what it is: a heresy. This protestantization of Catholic identity has gone on long enough. The more we appeal to the lowest common denominator, the more we lose in terms of our devotional life ("the Rosary offends some Protestants; we better emphasize something else to be more ecumenical"), our church interiors ("statues offend some Protestants; we better have a really empty interior...maybe a cross, but no crucifix"), our church exteriors ("these spires and bells may look too Roman; let's build a common meeting hall"), etc. This will never end well. I'm tired of this rhetoric of "let's act like the Protestants are pretty much like us," because it's uncharitable to the Protestant who needs the Catholic Faith and it waters down the Catholic's understanding of their faith.  Protestantism, like any heresy, is like poison; even one drop in a glass of water makes the whole glass dangerous.
