Ecumenism: Rabbi praises Pope Benedict for his clear teaching

This is from Fr. Z's blog, WDTPRS. Rabbi Yerachmiel Seplowitz is not at all miffed at the Pope for saying that the Catholic Church is the one, true Church established by Jesus Christ. In his words, "I, for one, am not at all put off by the fact that the leader of another religion sees that religion as primary. If he thinks his religion is right, he obviously thinks mine is wrong ... What the pope is saying – and I agree 100 percent – is that there are irreconcilable differences, and we can’t pretend those differences don’t exist."

That's refreshingly honest.
