. True popes cannot teach heresy - all Catholic books say it.
It's all rather insane-making. The pope has authority so he can say that he is the pope and it is so b/c he is the pope and yet humans were involved w/ electing him and humans fail, but the Church does not ever fail and even Satan cannot destroy it, but what is meant by "the Church"? Is the Church the pope and all other practicing Catholics? If he is the Church then we have to listen to him, and this is all just enough to drive you insane if you let it
I am not going 2 let it. It is simple 2 me: a heretic is not a Christian much less Catholic or pope
I like simple stuff so this works 4 me
