Upon browsing the web I came upon this website. The Most Holy Family Monastery has a large amount information mostly regarding Vatican II and anti-popes. This Monastery seems to be extreme. I read some of their referenced quotes/passages and verified them as authentic.
(1) ** Benedict XVI, speech apologizing for his comments on Islam, Sept. 2006:** “In the Muslim world, this quotation has unfortunately been taken as an expression of my personal position, thus arousing understandable indignation. I hope that the reader of my text can see immediately that this sentence does not express *my personal view of the Qur’an, for which I have the respect due to the holy book of a great religion.” (what???)
(2) “It is of course possible to read the Old Testament so that it is not directed toward Christ; it does not point quite unequivocally to Christ (“Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger, God and the World, 2000, p. 209) (what???)
(3)Benedict XVI, Address, Dec. 22, 2006: “My visit to Turkey afforded me the opportunity to show also publicly my respect for the Islamic Religion, a respect, moreover, which the Second Vatican Council (declaration Nostra Aetate #3) pointed out to us as an attitude that is only right.”
(4)Benedict XVI, Address, May 18, 2006: “Likewise, peace is rooted in respect for religious freedom, which is a fundamental and primordial aspect of the freedom of conscience of individuals and the freedom of peoples. It is important that everywhere in the world every person can belong to the religion of his choice and practice it freely without fear, for no one can base his life on the quest of material being alone.” (L’Osservatore Romano, May 24, 2006, p. 5.) (what???)
(5)VATICAN CITY, NOV. 30, 2005, Zenit News Report- Benedict XVI: “Whoever seeks peace and the good of the community with a pure conscience, and keeps alive the desire for the transcendent, will be saved even if he lacks biblical faith, says Benedict XVI.” (WHAT???)
(6)On May 14, 1999, John Paul II bowed to and kissed the Koran.???
(7)Benedict XVI, Introduction to Christianity, 2004, p. 349: “It now becomes clear that the real heart of faith in the resurrection does not consist at all in the idea of the restoration of bodies, to which we have reduced it in our thinking; such is the case even though this is the pictorial image used throughout the Bible.” (WHAT???)
What is going on here? If these are true then one need not be Catholic, be baptized, or even believe in the papacy. So what is the point of being Catholic if I can be saved another way? Can someone please tell me why are these quotes said so frequently, especially by a pope?
