Sunday Thought

Almost forgot to post it. Gotten by something posted at Zippy's, from the one time Cardinal Ratzinger:

It is strange that some theologians have difficulty accepting the precise and limited doctrine of papal infallibility, but see no problem in granting de facto infallibility to everyone who has a conscience.

The problem extends beyond theologians, evidence for which can be found in this interminable thread at W4.

EVERYONE has a pope and considers him (or, egads! her) infallible, whether they want to admit it or not. and, more often than not, it is themselves.

My real goal with that thread was to break 300 comments. Mission accomplished.

Good job, although I consider being subjected to 100 by Prejean a form of torture.
