I've got another question then: In his opposition to the death penalty, has the Pope invoked the doctrine of "Infallibility"?
Because if not, he's just offering his opinion.

To my knowledge the Catholic church has never had a pope speaking ex cathedra (Out of the chair infallibly)saying the death penalty is immoral. The church has supported the death penalty for many years. To now change the opinion on a basic moral question would make the church a laughing stock.

I have said it before on FR the pope and bishops when expressing their personal feel good opinions should be challenged by rank and file catholics. The clergy are no more catholic than you are. Don't take their liberal bullsh*t.

And while I am at it, why don't you resign Cardinal Law. You are a disgrace as a catholic. - Tom
