I fail to see how the discussion of a group of laypeople would edify you about "Catholicism" in some way that the official - publically available, in English - teachings and historic understandings of the Catholic Church would not.

Sooo, are you saying that lay people ought to just defer to the Church and not read scripture on their own?

What a disconnected response to my suggestion that you find out what the Catholic Church (as an institution) teaches by consulting the Catholic Church's published statements of its teaching. It's almost as if you have a mental block, such that, no matter what anyone says, you're going to interpret it to mean what you've previously decided.

I find that to be No Fun. Nothing personal, and have a nice day.
