Subsisting In, or Something

I've already noted some pretty wild misconceptions about what the Vatican is saying in The Subsisting Church of Christ

Let's look at what's really being said:
The use of this expression [subsists in], which indicates the full identity of the Church of Christ with the Catholic Church, does not change the doctrine on the Church... Rather, it comes from and brings out more clearly the fact that there are 'numerous elements of sanctification and of truth' which are found outside her structure, but which 'as gifts properly belonging to the Church of Christ, impel toward Catholic unity.'
See? It's perfectly clear.

Or maybe he meant this:

Just a thought.

Granted, the heat's making me snarky, but why do Protestants *care* what we believe? The same ones who're complaining about what they think the CDF wrote are the same ones who'd give us grief about being "unbiblical" or "non-Christian." Grrf. Don't mind me. I'm going to go soak in a tub of ice water.

Do I dare email this to my sister who went protestant because "Catholics have too many rules"
