New church vies the papacy as the "Head Presider" and wants the faithful and, more accurately, the self-serving novus ordite followers to view the papacy as a presidency. Look at the U.S., it has three surviving ex-presidents and they get to go around making speeches and cutting ribbons and now these PE's can do the same.
In the interview, Jimmy Akin is very sure that Benedict XVI will be a saint someday. Amazing. As for Mr. Akin, since he is a Protestant convert, he probably just sees the Catholic Church as a Protestant church but with a 2,000 year history instead of the average six month history of these Protestant houses of ill-repute. Or, in a sinister light, the Novus Ordo sect hires these kind of men to be soothsayers to the self-aggrandizing followers.
