Benedict XVI, Message for 94th World Day of Migrants and Refugees, October 18, 2007: “Then, among the migrants... It is necessary to help them find a way to open up to the dynamism of interculturality and be enriched in their contact with other students of different cultures and religions.”
Benedict XVI states here that it’s necessary to be “enriched” by having contact with members of false religions.
Benedict XVI, Address to the Baptist-Catholic Joint International Commission, December 6, 2007: “The theme which you have chosen for this phase of contacts – The Word of God in the Life of the Church: Scripture, Tradition and Koinonia – offers a promising context for the examination of such historically controverted issues as the relationship between Scripture and Tradition, the understanding of Baptism and the sacraments, the place of Mary in the communion of the Church, and the nature of oversight and primacy in the Church’s ministerial structure. If our hope for reconciliation and greater fellowship between Baptists and Catholics is to be realized, issues such as these need to be faced together, in a spirit of openness, mutual respect... Today, as ever, the world needs our common witness to Christ and to the hope brought by the Gospel... For the lack of unity between Christians ‘openly contradicts the will of Christ’.”
First, he says that we should have “respect” for false beliefs on Church dogmas and should have an “openness” to such heresies. Second, he states that the world needs to receive the teachings of people who promote false views of Christianity. Third, he utters the heresy that there is not unity in Christianity.
