Pope sends olive branch to French Protestants
PARIS (Reuters) - Pope Benedict extended an olive branch to some of his harshest critics at the weekend, sending a cordial message to a French Protestant church and saying he wanted to work toward the unity of all Christians.

The message to a synod of the Reformed Church of France in the southern city of Aix-en-Province was the first papal note ever sent to the French church's annual assembly and met with surprise and approval, according to local media reports.

The Protestant Federation of France -- of which the Reformed Church is the largest member -- stood out among the well-wishers after Benedict's election on April 19 by bluntly expressing its concern about him and demanding "a sign of ecumenical openness."

It recalled he had dismissed Protestant denominations as "not proper churches" in an official statement in 2000 when he was ...

OK, Jim. I bookmarked it since I don't
have enough time to read it now.

Anything written by Stonewall Jackson
or his chief of staff (Dabney) is probably
well worth reading.

John, if you knew some of what these Catholic heroes may want to do, you may not be so fond of them. When there are two Catholics running for the same political office, and they are the only choices, I always vote for the liberal one. It shows they aren't completely sucked into the snake oil of the Catholic Church. :-(

The article is still here, it was written by Presbyterian pastor, it is probably more true today then when it was written.

I'm not catholic but so many of my
current political and social champions
are that it's easy to forget the many
spiritual differences we have with them.

Maybe this is another danger of getting
to caught up in politics, as I commented
on in another post.

Maybe they don't remember what the word PROTESTant means and why it even exists!

If the adult sheep don't teach the baby sheep about the wolves and how they can dress up to look just like real sheep then they are easy prey. Adult sheep must teach the young ones to be leery of other 'sheep' that seem to have wolfish ways. Then they won't fall for the leader of the largest 'sheep' pack in the world holding out an olive branch to them.

I'm beginning to think any good French Protestant, was either killed or immigrated to the American colonies. French Huguenot would know better than suggest ecumenism.

The bunch over there don't know a snake oil salesman when they see or hear one. :-(
