Benedict XVI, Interview with Vatican Radio, Aug. 5, 2006: “… the Evangelical [Protestant] Church. If I am not mistaken, in Germany we have three important communities: Lutherans, Reformed, and Prussian Union. There are also several free Churches and within there are movements like the ‘Confessing Church,’ and so on. It is therefore a collection of many voices with which we have to enter into dialogue, searching for unity while respecting the multiplicity of the voices with which we want to collaborate.” (L’Osservatore Romano, August 30, 2006, pp. 6-7.)
Notice that Benedict XVI explains that the search for unity with the Protestants respects the multiplicity of voices. This enunciates, once again, his position that they don’t need to abandon their heresies, and that unity with them is not the “ecumenism of the return.”
