I am aware of that, but it's still unfair to say the teachings are 'universally accepted.' This guy is trying to hot dog it and a good editor would have changed the wording, at least if I was his editor! :-)

It is clear from context that the statement means "universally accepted by Roman Catholics" (true by definition of any Vatican pronouncement of Catholic doctrine).
The author was a bit sloppy, I agree.
