How could anyone claiming to be Roman Catholic do anything but march lock-step in concert with the thoughts, wishes, words and genuflections of The Pope???

You state this with a certainty that is not warranted. I am not sure where you have gotten your information about the Catholic Church.

Not everything that a Pope says or writes is considered infallable. Only what is stated Ex Cathedra, usually with great specificity, is considered to be infallible by Catholics. Popes can have opinions on many things that are just that, their opinions. The sanctity of all human life is one of the infallible positions, however.

The Roman Catholic et al edifice is this

pristine, homogeneous, accurate from before Adam, saintly to the max organization with all the components more or less in 99.9999999% agreement . . . etc. etc. etc.

I know it’s a farce.

All the Prottys know it’s a farce.

Sane, thoughtful, ratioinal Roman Catholics et al know it’s a farce.

The only idiots who don’t seem to know that fantasy is a farce are the folks in the rabid cliques who worship the organization more than God.
