Well that didn't take long. The script in red is from the Vatican II documents, followed by commentary and opposing decrees by previous popes.
Principal heresies of Vatican II.
[b][i]6. Nostra Aetate[/i][/b][b] - [/b][i]Decree on Non-Christian Religions[/i]
[i]Nostra aetate[/i] # 3:
"[color=#B22222]The Church also looks upon [u]Muslims[/u] with respect. They worship the one God living and subsistent, merciful and mighty, creator of heaven and earth, who has spoken to humanity and to whose decrees, even the hidden ones, they[u] seek to submit themselves whole-heartedly[/u], just as Abraham, to whom the Islamic faith readily relates itself, submitted [u]to God[/u]...[u] Hence they have regard for the moral life and worship God in prayer, almsgiving and fasting[/u].[/color]"
Here we find Vatican II teaching that Muslims worship the one God, the Creator of Heaven and earth. This is similar to, but slightly different from, the heresy that we have already exposed in [i]Lumen Gentium[/i]. Here Vatican II does not say that Muslims worship God who will judge mankind on the last day, but that Muslims worship the One God who [b][i]created heaven and earth[/i][/b]. The false god of the Muslims did not create heaven and earth. The Most Holy Trinity created heaven and earth.
Pope St. Leo IX, [i]Congratulamur[/i][i] vehementer[/i], April 13, 1053:
"[b]For I firmly believe that the Holy Trinity, the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit[/b], is one omnipotent God, and in the Trinity the whole Godhead is co-essential and consubstantial, co-eternal and co-omnipotent, and of one will, power, majesty; [b]the creator of all creation, from whom all things, through whom all things, in whom all things which are in heaven or on earth, visible or invisible[/b]. Likewise I believe that each person in the Holy Trinity is the one true God, complete and perfect."
[i]Nostra Aetate[/i] 3 also says that the Catholic Church looks upon Muslims with respect, who seek to submit themselves to God wholeheartedly, just as Abraham did. But Vatican II's admiration for the infidel Muslims is not shared by the Catholic Church. The Church desires the conversion and eternal happiness of all the Muslims, but she recognizes that Islam is a horrible and false religion; and she does not pretend that they submit themselves to God. She knows that they belong to a false religion.
Pope Eugene IV, [i]Council of [/i][i]Basel[/i], Session 19, Sept. 7, 1434:
"Moreover, we trust that with God's help another benefit will accrue to the Christian commonwealth; because from this union, once it is established, there is hope that very many from [b]the abominable sect of Mahomet[/b] will be converted to the Catholic faith."
Pope Clement V, [i]Council of [/i][i]Vienne[/i], 1311-1312:
"[b]It is an insult to the holy name and a disgrace to the Christian faith[/b] that in certain parts of the world subject to Christian princes where Saracens (i.e., The followers of Islam, also called Muslims) live, sometimes apart, sometimes intermingled with Christians, the Saracen priests, commonly called Zabazala, in their temples or mosques, in which the Saracens meet to adore [b]the infidel Mahomet[/b], loudly invoke and extol his name each day at certain hours from a high place... [b]This brings disrepute on our faith and gives great scandal to the faithful.[/b] [b]These practices cannot be tolerated without displeasing the divine majesty[/b]. We therefore, with the sacred council's approval, strictly forbid such practices henceforth in Christian lands. We enjoin on Catholic princes, one and all.. [b]They are to forbid expressly the public invocation of the sacrilegious name of Mahomet[/b]... Those who presume to act otherwise are to be so chastised by the princes for their irreverence, that others may be deterred from such boldness."
Pope Benedict strictly forbade Catholics to even give Muslim names to their children under pain of damnation.
Pope Benedict XIV, [i]Quod[/i][i] Provinciale[/i], Aug. 1, 1754:
"The Provincial Council of your province of Albania... decreed most solemnly in its third canon, among other matters, as you know, that [b]Turkish or Mohammedan names should not be given either to children or adults in baptism... This should not be hard for any one of you, venerable brothers, for none of the schismatics and heretics has been rash enough to take a Mohammedan name, and unless your justice abounds more than theirs, you shall not enter the kingdom of God[/b]."
Vatican II's document [i]Nostra Aetate[/i] likewise expresses its great esteem for Jews who reject Our Lord Jesus Christ.
[i]Nostra aetate[/i] # 4:
[color=#B22222]"Since, therefore, [u]the spiritual heritage common to Christians and Jews is so great, this synod wishes to promote and recommend that mutual knowledge and esteem[/u] which is required especially from biblical and theological studies and from friendly dialogues.[/color]"
[i]Nostra aetate[/i] # 4:
[color=#B22222]"As holy scripture is witness, Jerusalem did not know the time of its visitation, and for the most part [u]the Jews did not accept the Gospel[/u], indeed many of them opposed its dissemination. [u]Nevertheless[/u], according to the apostle, because of their ancestors [u]the Jews still remain very dear to God[/u], whose gift and call are without regret."[/color]
The Catholic Church does not look upon the Jews with esteem, but with sadness, acknowledging that they exist in a state of rejection of the true God; and that they need to be recalled from their false religion in order to be saved.
Pope Benedict XIV, [i]A Quo Primum[/i] (# 4), June 14, 1751:
[b]"Surely it is not in vain that the Church has established the universal prayer which is offered up for the faithless Jews from the rising of the sun to its setting, that the Lord God may remove the veil from their hearts, that they may be rescued from their darkness into the light of truth[/b]. For unless it hoped that those who do not believe would believe, it would obviously be futile and empty to pray for them."
Pope Benedict XIV is referring to the prayer in the Catholic liturgy which implored God to convert the perfidious Jews. The word perfidious means unfaithful. Not surprisingly, in 1960, the phrase "perfidious Jews" was removed from the Good Friday liturgy by Pope John XXIII. Furthermore, Pope Eugene IV dogmatically defined that everyone who practices the Mosaic law - that is, the Jewish religion - cannot be saved.
Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, [i]Cantate[/i][i] Domino[/i], Feb. 4, 1441:
[b]"The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and teaches that the matter pertaining to the law of the Old Testament, of the Mosaic Law[/b], which are divided into ceremonies, sacred rites, sacrifices, and sacraments, because they were established to signify something in the future, although they were suited to divine worship at that time, after our Lord's coming had been signified by them, [b]ceased[/b], and the sacraments of the New Testament began; [b]and that whoever, even after the passion, placed hope in these matters of the law and submitted himself to them[/b] as necessary for salvation, as if faith in Christ could not save without them, [b]sinned mortally[/b]. Yet it does not deny that after the passion of Christ up to the promulgation of the Gospel they could have been observed until they were believed to be in no way necessary for salvation; [b]but after the promulgation of the Gospel it asserts that they cannot be observed without the loss of eternal salvation.[/b] [b]All, therefore, who after that time (the promulgation of the Gospel) observe circumcision and the Sabbath and the other requirements of the law, it declares alien to the Christian faith and not in the least fit to participate in eternal salvation[/b], unless someday they recover from these errors."
Besides Jews and Muslims, [i]Nostra Aetate[/i] made sure to remind the world how great Buddhism is and how this false religion leads to the highest illumination.
[i]Nostra aetate[/i] # 2:
[color=#B22222]"[u]In Buddhism[/u], according to its various forms, the radical inadequacy of this changeable world is acknowledged and a way is taught whereby [u]those with a devout and trustful spirit may be able to reach[/u] either a state of perfect freedom or, relying on their own efforts or on help from a higher source, [u]the highest illumination[/u].[/color]"
And the false religion of Hinduism is praised for its inexhaustible wealth of penetrating philosophical investigations, as well as its ascetical life and deep meditation.
[i]Nostra aetate[/i] # 2:[color=#B22222]"[u]Thus in Hinduism the divine mystery is explored [/u]and propounded with an inexhaustible wealth of myths and [u]penetrating philosophical investigations[/u], and liberation is sought from the distresses of our state either [u]through various forms of ascetical life or deep meditation or taking refuge in God[/u] with loving confidence."[/color]
Amid all of this blasphemy, no mention is made that these infidels must be converted to Christ; no prayer is offered that the faith may be granted to them; and no admonition that these idolaters must be delivered from their impiety. What we see is praise and esteem for these religions of the devil. What we see is an unequivocal syncretism, which treats all religions as if they are paths to God.
Pope Pius XI, [i]Mortalium[/i][i] Animos[/i] (# 2), Jan. 6, 1928:
"... [b]that false opinion which considers all religions to be more or less good and praiseworthy[/b], ... [b]Not only are those who hold this opinion in error and deceived, but also in distorting the idea of true religion they reject it[/b], and little by little, turn aside to naturalism and atheism, as it is called; [b]from which it clearly follows that one who supports those who hold these theories and attempt to realize them, is altogether abandoning the divinely revealed religion."[/b]
Pope Pius IX, [i]Qui Pluribus[/i] (# 15), Nov. 9, 1846:
[b]"Also perverse is that shocking theory that it makes no difference to which religion one belongs, a theory greatly at variance even with reason[/b]. By means of this theory, those crafty men remove all distinction between virtue and vice, truth and error, honorable and vile action. [b]They pretend that men can gain eternal salvation by the practice of any religion,[/b] [b]as if there could ever be any sharing between justice and iniquity, any collaboration between light and darkness,[/b] [b]or any agreement between Christ and Belial."[/b]
Pope Eugene IV, [i]Council of Florence[/i], Cantate Domino, Session 11, Feb. 4, 1442: "The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in the eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the Catholic Church before the end of their lives..."
Pope Gregory XVI, [i]Summo[/i][i] Iugiter Studio[/i] (# 2), May 27, 1832:
[b]"Finally some of these misguided people attempt to persuade themselves and others that men are not saved only in the Catholic religion, but that even heretics may attain eternal life."[/b]
