Pope Shows Apostolic Succession

Pope Benedict XVI reiterated other churches are not true churches. "Christ 'established here on earth' only one church," the document said. The other communities "cannot be called 'churches' in the proper sense" because they do not have apostolic succession - the ability to trace their bishops back to Christ's original apostles.

I hate to tell the Pope but Christ was a Jew, practicing a reformed method of Judaism. It was the Pope's Roman Catholic ancestors who claimed Christ established the Christian church. However the Pope was kind enough to explain the measure of apostolic succession. "It's in the shoes man. While the Devil wears Prada, the Pope has his Ruby Red Slippers. Yes, Dorothy was of the one true faith!" The Pope failed to mention Prada made his shoes. Does that make him the devil in terms of podiatric succession?
