Thus we have multiple "Catholic" positions on Lumen Gentium, as concerns what kind of Prots may be saved, as well as whether the EOs can be.

One might think that sedevacantists would be more uniform in this, but they are not, and while the EOs escape officially being relegated as being a non-church, as evangelicals are, one sedevacantist group cuts them off entirely in their understanding of Unam Sanctum.

"Thus we are left with an apologetical task brethren, to dismantle the position of the eastern hoard of schismatics, those servants of the diabolical one who claim to be the sheep of Christ but are not. For Our Predecessor Boniface VIII declared concerning these liars who have abandoned the Ark in his Bull of 1302: Therefore, of the one and only Church there is one body and one head, not two heads like a monster; that is, Christ and the Vicar of Christ, Peter and the successor of Peter, since the Lord speaking to Peter Himself said: 'Feed my sheep' [Jn 21:17], meaning, my sheep in general, not these, nor those in particular, whence we understand that He entrusted all to him [Peter].

Therefore, if the Greeks or others should say that they are not confided to Peter and to his successors, they must confess not being the sheep of Christ, since Our Lord says in John 'there is one sheepfold and one shepherd.' These schismatics are hidden beasts presenting themselves as men." -

Then you have the differences (,


Then there are those who attempt to join together all Christian religions into one faith. They would be horrified at the idea of a service with Hindus and Christians celebrating together, yet they do not bat an eyelash at the idea of Orthodox celebrating with Roman Catholics, who with no authority broke off from the Church close to a thousand years ago.
