VATICAN CITY - The Vatican on Tuesday issued a new version of a Roman Catholic prayer that had long offended Jews, but some said the changes don't go far enough.

Jewish groups said they interpreted the new version of the prayer for Jews as requiring members of their faith - and all of humanity - to convert to Christianity in order to find salvation.

I don't understand why non-Catholics get offended when Catholic prayers pray for the conversion of non-Catholics to Catholicism. In the same sense, I didn't understand why non-Catholics got so up-in-arms when the Pope said that churches outside of the Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches weren't real churches.

I don't personally care whether people of other religions believe that I'm going to heaven. If I thought their religion was so great and important that I had better listen to every thing that they say, I'd convert.
