Cardinal criticises Vatican statement for 'inappropriate' language

The Vatican's top official for Christian unity has criticised a Roman Catholic statement published in 2000 that described Protestant denominations as not being churches, "in the proper sense."

"I took exception to it - not to the document's contents, but only to its language. In my opinion, this was inappropriate," said Cardinal Walter Kasper, president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, in an interview with Poland's Catholic information agency KAI.
