I don’t believe your pope or anyone is the vicar of Christ any more than Osama Obama is...Jesus Christ doesn’t have a ‘vicar’ other than the Holy Spirit...
I can easily see why some would react the way they do on twitter...
Oh my, how sad. You are missing out on SO MUCH HISTORY.
Only some of the people you easily understand posting profane and hateful tweets agree with your specific issue against the Pope.
The vast majority of them would be tweeting the same profane and hateful tweets against you for being a Christian(?).
It would be a rare Tweeter who is even aware of theological disputes at THAT level.
These aren’t browned-off, educated Protestants. These are ignoramuses who could hardly care about Jesus in any manner.
