I don't see any other context in which the statement can be taken. It is completely straightforward. Your reference to the context is a weak attempt to dodge the issue.
Then why dont you prove that this is what V2 said? It didnt say that, and you know it. The Cardinals opinion is no more then that, the Cardinals opinion. You can take it as Gospel all you like, it isnt.

Why all the animosity? I won't point out any place where Vatican II says this, because I can't. I just wanted to point out how the top Vatican officials working on ecumenism view the issue. The question is, do we support the Vatican now or harken back to past teachings of the church?
