Conservative Cardinals Challenge the Pope
Here's the story:

Quote:VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Four conservative Roman Catholic cardinals on Monday made a rare public challenge to Pope Francis over some of his teachings in a major document on the family, accusing him of sowing confusion on important moral issues.

Isn't the pope supposed to be infallible?

From Wikipedia:
Over the centuries, papal claims of spiritual authority have been ever more firmly expressed, culminating in 1870 with the proclamation of the dogma of papal infallibility for rare occasions when the pope speaks ex cathedra—literally "from the chair (of Saint Peter)"—to issue a formal definition of faith or morals.

If their god picked the pope, and the pope speaks for god, and god can't be wrong and the pope can't be wrong...

Idiots.

I think the Cardinals are just mad because they didn't win the World Series this year.

Well he is full of shit...

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

So if there is a thinking chair, does the Pope get chosen by a Sorting hat?

RE: Conservative Cardinals Challenge the Pope
"The cardinals are Raymond Leo Burke, an American who was demoted from a senior Vatican position in 2014 and who has often criticized the pope, Germans Walter Brandmuller and Joachim Meisner, and Italian Carlo Caffarra.

In their letter, they officially asked the pope to take a stand on five "doubts" they have about some of the pronouncements in his document and declare whether those supersede rulings by previous popes."

Of *course* the idiot Burke is involved. I hope he gets *silenced* for this. He's just pissed as he's got nowhere to traipse around in his long *extra special* red dress and cape.

I doubt Francis will be bullied, or pushed around.

Oh, I do so enjoy it when these guys get a good snit on!

Nothing like dissention in the ranks to get a nice bit of chaos and change stoked up.

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.
