When was "you cannot be separated from the papacy" officially declared a dogma. Is it listed in Denzinger?
Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff (Unam Sanctum-1302).
Who is the Roman Pontiff?
The Roman Pontiff is who was duly elected by the College of Cardinals, followed by the hierarchy of Bishops, and accepted by the Church as such.
In current times, the visible Roman Pontiff is the Argentinian Pope Francis.
His papacy remains valid even if he falls into "alleged" heresy. If it is a matter of Divine Law as the sedevacantists claim when they are put into a corner, then God for sure knows and such "heretic" Pope may lose his pontificate before GOD. There is NOTHING else to be said. That does not mean that the common layman has any authority to pronounce such judgment, let alone jeopardize the salvation of his own soul, merely based on his private opinion.
Although, Sedevacantism is a real temptation nowadays, to be a real "Traditional" Catholic is to follow the 2000 year old tradition of being loyal to the Church in union with Rome.
Why do you mock your church so much and even the one who is supposed to be the head. You call them modernists and liberals all the time. I know you are not the only one who does this, but according to your posts you seem to be the biggest double-dealer of them all. Knowmsayin?
It is because there is a great difference between The Church Herself and the humans that compose it. The Church hierarchy has been infiltrated by Her enemies and Vatican II was the official triumph of Modernism. There is a big difference between the Church as a Divine entity and the Church as a human society. This human society is composed of great sinners, which fall into heresy and error.
That has nothing to do with laity declaring "sedevacancy" as a result of the hierarchy being infiltrated by Modernism because in Catholicism, there is a hierarchical order to everything and to pretend that the entire visible magisterium has failed and furthermore, that a layman can decide by himself if there is a visible reigning pope or not, is beyond ridiculous.
Regardless of what Popes believe as private individuals or even teach publicly, Catholics must believe what has been solemnly defined in the past. There have been a few Popes who have taught or held various heresies, but as they did not attempt to pronounce them ex cathedra, infallibility is not threatened, therefore the Church as a Divine entity still does not err
When faced with such situations, in which the Pope falls into error / heresy, the Catholic is obliged to stick with defined dogma, even if the Pope does not appear to. We may not judge the Pope; but we are responsible before God for our own beliefs and actions. We can resist the Pontiff, but we are in no position to declare him a heretic.
