Pope Benedict believes non-Catholics “suffer from defects”

Okay, where to even begin with this statement from the Prada wearing pope, Benedict the 16th Century, who is leading his church back in time:

In issuing a statement Tuesday from the Vatican to clarify church policy on other Christian faiths, Pope Benedict XVI referred to the Protestant congregations as defective and not true churches.

The statement said, in part, “These separated churches and communities, though we believe they suffer from defects, are deprived neither of significance nor importance in the mystery of salvation. In fact the Spirit of Christ has not refrained from using them as instruments of salvation, whose value derives that fullness of grace and truth which has been entrusted to the Catholic Church.”

Now if Benedict is worried about those who suffer from defects, there’s plenty to choose from within his own church. Plenty. The pope should check out one of his biggest defenders in America, the bigoted, homophobe William Donohoe:
