Benedict XVI’s May 22, 2010 Discourse to conference: “In a global society, composed of many peoples and of various religions, the common good and integral development are only achieved with the input of all. In this, religions are crucial, particularly when they teach brotherhood and peace, because they teach people to make room for God and to be open to the Transcendent, especially in our society marked by secularization. The exclusion of religions from the public sphere, just as, in another way, religious fundamentalism, impedes the encounter of peoples and their collaboration for the progress of humanity. The life of society is drained of its motivation and politics assumes oppressive and aggressive features.”
Benedict XVI first states that the common good and the development of society cannot happen without the input of all religions. Secondly, he states that “religions are crucial.” This is outright blasphemy against God to declare that false religions are “crucial.” Thirdly, he says that the exclusion of different false religions from the public sphere impedes the progress of humanity. He closes by stating that when false religions are excluded from the public, “the life of society is drained of its motivation.” This is a horribly heretical speech by the arch-apostate Benedict XVI.
Benedict XVI’s June 4, 2010 Address: “Since the Apostles brought the Christian message to these shores, Cyprus has been blessed by a resilient Christian heritage. I greet as a brother in that faith His Beatitude Chrysostomos II, Archbishop of Nea Justiniana and All Cyprus, and I look forward shortly to meeting many more members of the Orthodox Church of Cyprus. I also look forward to greeting other Cypriot religious leaders. I hope to strengthen our common bonds and to reiterate the need to build up mutual trust and lasting friendship between all those who worship the one God.” 
The heretic Benedict XVI states that the leader of the schismatic church is a brother in the one true faith. This is clearly a denial of Vatican I. Benedict XVI also describes the schismatic leader as Archbishop of all Cyprus.
Benedict XVI’s June 4, 2010 Discourse at Ecumenical Celebration at the “Orthodox” Church of Agia Kiriaki Chrysopolitissa: “With great joy I salute you who represent the Christian communities present in Cypress. I thank His Beatitude Chrysostomos II for his gracious words of welcome, His Eminence Georgios, the Metropolitan of Paphos, our host, and all those who have helped to make this meeting possible. I am also pleased cordially to salute the Christians of other confessions present, including those of the Armenian, Lutheran and Anglican communities. It is truly an extraordinary grace for us to gather together in prayer in this Church of Agia Kiriaki Chrysopolitissa… The Church in Cyprus can rightly be proud of her direct links to the preaching of Paul, Barnabas and Mark, and her communion in the apostolic faith, a communion which links her to all those Churches who preserve that same rule of faith… May the Holy Spirit enlighten our minds and strengthen our resolve, so that together we can bring the message of salvation to the men and women of our time…” 
Benedict XVI states that it is an extraordinary grace to gather in a schismatic church and pray in union with non Catholics. He then states that the “Orthodox” church has the true apostolic faith held by St. Paul, Barnabas and Mark. This is totally heretical.
Benedict XVI’s March 20, 2010 Address to Bishops of Burkina Faso and of Niger: “The good atmosphere that habitually exists in interreligious relations enables the deepening of ties of esteem and friendship, as well as collaboration among all the members of society. Teaching the young generations the fundamental values of respect and brotherhood will encourage mutual understanding. May the bonds that unite Christians and Muslims in particular continue to be reinforced, to further peace and justice for the common good, rejecting every temptation to violence or intolerance!” 
The apostate Benedict XVI says that we should have esteem for other religions and that there are bonds that unite Christians and Muslims. He then states that everyone must reject every single temptation to intolerance. So, according to Benedict XVI, if someone is worshipping a false god, you must reject the temptation to be intolerant of his idolatrous worship!
Benedict XVI’s May 22, 2010 Discourse to Delegation from the Republic of Bulgaria: “On the journey towards full integration with the other European nations, Bulgaria is thus called to foster and witness to those Christian roots, which derive from the teachings of Sts Cyril and Methodius, which are more timely and necessary today than ever. It is called, that is, to remain faithful and to guard the precious heritage that unites those who profess the same faith in the Apostles and are united by a common Baptism, whether Orthodox or Catholic. As Christians, we have the task of conserving and reinforcing the intrinsic bond that exists between the Gospel and our respective cultural identities. As disciples of the Lord – in mutual respect of the diverse ecclesial traditions – we are called to a shared witness of our faith in Jesus…”
He states that the “Orthodox” have a precious heritage of faith and they have the one true faith that is also possessed by Catholics.
Benedict XVI’s June 5, 2010 Address during meeting with “Orthodox Archbishop” at the “Orthodox” Chapel: “I greet the Holy Synod, and all the priests, deacons, monks, nuns and lay faithful of the Church of Cyprus… build for future generations a society distinguished by respect for the rights of all, including the inalienable rights to freedom of conscience and freedom of worship… With these sentiments, Your Beatitude, I thank you once more for your fraternal welcome, and I assure you of my prayers for you and for all the clergy of the Church of Cyprus.”
He calls the “Orthodox” the faithful of the Church and their clergy “the clergy of the Church.”
Benedict XVI’s June 6, 2010 Remarks to Special Synod: “I seriously hope that all your rights will be increasingly respected, including the right to freedom of worship and religious freedom…”
Benedict XVI encourages all people to respect the right to freedom of conscience, worship, and religion. This is contrary to what numerous Popes have infallibly taught.
Benedict XVI’s June 4, 2010 Answers to Interview Questions on “Papal” Flight: “… we are all God’s children and each other’s brothers and sisters… dialogue with our Muslim brothers and sisters who are our brothers and sisters…”
