They seem to teach Rome’s a denomination
Eccleston Square = the Magic Circle = English AmChurch. From Damian Thompson. Of course the correct answer is Protestants are in the church, thanks, for the most part, to their baptisms but not fully in the church (the church by definition is not a denomination). Rome says Protestants have non-churches; Orthodox have churches because they meet these criteria (essentially, consistently claiming apostolic succession and having the right teaching about the Eucharist: having bishops and the Mass) but are not fully the church; having the Pope, they say, makes one fully the church.
