Vatican demands retraction

Waclaw Hryniewicz, a Roman Catholic theologian from Poland, rejected a demand by the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to retract and rewrite an article on the Open Theology Web site.

His article, titled “The saviour uses many tunes,” criticized a June 2007 Vatican document asserting that Protestant denominations are not churches “in the proper sense.”

Hryniewicz said, “It’s another sad story about how Rome sends out condemnations of theologians.”
