Sir,:
I do not know who you are or why you bothered to send me your strange screed to me. You certainly appear to be a  religious crank hiding behind religious platitudes. Faith in Christ is not enough for salvation. It is necessary to do good works in charity to be saved. “Not everyone who says to Me  “Lord, Lord’, will enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”
You speak of a “big lie”; you committed one when you falsely accuse the Catholic Church of condemning Baptists, Anglicans, etc. to Hell. Your “testimonies” are false.
The Church regards separated Christians as “brothers” in imperfect communion with the Catholic Church,though she prays and labors for their reception of the fullness of the Christian faith.
Please read the documents “Dogmatic Constitution on the Church”: and “Decree on Ecumenism” of Vatican II. to inform you accurately on Catholic Church teaching.
As to the Pope, he is the successor of Peter and heir to the latter’s prerogatives as visible head of the Church on earth: See Matt. 16: 18-19; Luke 22: 31-32; Jn. 21: 15-17 to read what the Invisible Head, Christ did for the visible unity of His one and only visible Church. As to Scott Hahn, he has a far better understanding of Holy Scripture than you regarding the Church and its visible head. Scott also knows that the overwhelming verdict of Church History:  from the day Peter was martyred in Rome, the Papacy always existed in the form of the Bishops of Rome exercising the powers of the Keys in the Church and being the Rock of the entire Episcopate. The Gates of Hell cannot prevail against the Catholic Church built on the Rock of Peter and his successors.l
Sincerely,
JL
