Cardinal Kasper: Lutherans don't have to believe in Transubstantiation to receive Holy Communion; the average Catholic doesn't understand the teaching anyway.

This is lunacy! If this mixed up man were to go to a bunch of Mormons, become a Minister, and then spend the next 50 odd years chuntering on about the merits of Transcendental Meditation - he would be given short shift, kicked out, told that he wasn't REALLY a Morman - and that he needed to go and affiliate himself with another group who held his views. .

That being said - why is he allowed to glue himself to the RC Church to the degree that the entire Church risks becoming something that Her founder (Jesus Christ ie GOD) would object to? These self glorifying ideologues must be sick and tired of deluding us all that they belong to the RC Church and surely are equally bored with insisting that the REAL Catholics are the ones who are not practicing the Faith of Christ properly.

Go away! Vain Narcissist. We don't like what you do - you are not TRUE, you are not Roman Catholic, - you identify yourself with a completely different faith. Go harass some OTHER faith and leave Our Lord's TRUE Church to those who really DO like Her the way He means Her to remain.

Acording to the Dominus Jesus document of the Church Kasper is right. We are one Church with the protestants but not in full unity. Please read the Church teaching and don't exagerate...

Kasper "No one expects a Catholic to be able to recite the doctrine of Transubstantiation"
