104. Well, lots of stuff changes in forty years
I can't think of a single doctrine which says only Catholics are going to heaven. In fact, the RCC has been busy lately in both healing schisms amd finding common communion (the Anglicans come to mind) and increasing dialogues with other faiths -- both Christian and not.
You need to read what I wrote, my friend. I didn't say "beliefs over actions," I said "actions over beliefs."
Frankly, I'm not sure you rejected the church in the 1960s or the 1460s. I went to Catholic school in the 1960s (right smack during Vatican II) and while I can't speak to what official doctrine was before that, I can assure you that the church today teaches that all persons who live and profess their faith as God gives them the wisdom to see that faith are Children of God. That includes Lutherans, Baptists, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Shintos and who all else. And it is precisely why we place our stock on actions over beliefs.

Yes, I do enjoy the new and improved Catholic Church. Every Easter and Christmas.
