Still worse, respecting this imaginary silent Christian witness Francis made no distinction between orthodox Catholics, who follow all the teachings of Christ, and Lutherans, who pick and choose from the Gospel as they practice contraception, divorce and even abortion, pretend to ordain women and practicing homosexuals as “priests” and “bishops,” and condone diabolical “marriages” between people of the same sex.

There is also the author of this piece who makes no distinction between confessional Lutherans (who hold to the Word of God and the Book of Concord) and Lutherans in name only (who pick and choose what to follow).

It's really weird that Catholics would embrace heretical Lutherans when Catholics have much more in common with orthodox Lutherans. I understand that Catholics and Lutherans have disagreements, but don't disparage all Lutherans because of the views of quacks.

Confessional Lutherans, including the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, the Evangelical Lutheran Synod and the Church of the Lutheran Confession teach that the Roman papacy or office of the pope is the Antichrist, including this article of faith as part of a quia rather than quatenus subscription to the Book of Concord.
