>> Are you denying that Roman popes have not been found to be heretics? <<

One council found that a pope (Liberius?) in the 4th century anathematized a previous pope, and a heresy they believed him to have promulgated. The pope in question, however, was imprisoned by Rome (Constantinus?), and likely did not sign the proclamation of his own free will. Therefore, it is highly questionnable whether the pope had truly held false doctrine, or committed the sin of caving into ungodly secular forces.

>> You can also include Phillip Schaff, whom Roman Catholics are fond of citing when they think Schaff supports RC positions. <<

Ah, yes... Philip Schaff. He was tried for heresy for holding positions which were “too Catholic.” Then, he reaches far more counter-Catholic positions, and continues to secure cooshy jobs. While I can see why Catholics may cite his early conclusions, he is not the best candidate for an appeal to authority, when citing his later counter-Catholic positions.

I’m trying to think who are you going to cite next in a race for less credible theologians, Howard Dean, Leon Trotsky, or Jim Jones?

Oh yes, in typical RC fashion, anyone and everyone who does not tow the RC line, including renowned RC historians such as Von Dollinger, Raymond Brown, or Michael Winter because they make honest statements of history that conflict with Rome's invented illusions, are demonized by trying to make a false association such as yours above.

Good job, that's how the marxists work.
