LORENZAGO DI CADORE, Italy - has reasserted the universal primacy of the , approving a document released Tuesday that says Orthodox churches were defective and that other Christian denominations were not true churches.
It restates key sections of a 2000 document the pope wrote when he was prefect of the congregation, "Dominus Iesus," which set off a firestorm of criticism among Protestant and other Christian denominations because it said they were not true churches but merely ecclesial communities and therefore did not have the "means of salvation."
In the new document and an accompanying commentary, which were released as the pope vacations here in Italy's Dolomite mountains, the Vatican repeated that position.

Pope says other Christians not true churches
It's the point we atheists make all the time!!! One sect of Christians think they have it right and all other Christians are not "real" Christians and we are supposed to listen to all of them when they can't even decide amongst themselves what it is to be a "true Christian". From the atheist perspective, it all looks kind of crazy ass watching them all fight over who's mythology is reality.
