Vatican Text Angers Protestants

Pope Benedict has approved a new text asserting that Christian denominations outside the Roman Catholic church are not true churches in the full sense of the word. The document, issued by a Vatican watchdog, has been criticized as offensive by some Protestants. The text was written by the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, headed by Pope Benedict before his election as Pope.
