    I've heard statement after statement that have contradicted each other in reguards to the Catholic position on Orthodox (East and Oriental), Anglican and Protestant Christans

    Are they legit Christian?
    Are they damned for all eternity?

    Yes, for the first and I have no idea for the second. I can't even tell you if catholics are going to heaven or hell.

    You could post those statements here and we'll try to explain that.

    about:
    According to my dictionary, one who seeks Christ within his heart can be considered a Christian.

    In the Catholic faith, no one can tell if one is damned to hell for all eternity. Neither can anyone be assured of his salvation (one must work hard for it). And I am not in position to throw judgment to others.

    The Catholic church has positions on all faiths.
    The degree to which it considers other Churches to be "Christian" varies.
    The Orthodox are accepted completely. Christian Unitarians are rejected completely.
    Most others are accepted to be within God's greater Church, but not in Communion with Rome. It accepts only Trinitarian Baptism.
