Thank you!

I can’t understand either what’s this pretension held by many Catholics that they can judge the Pope at every instance. Beats me!

I see it as larger than just the Pope. We've seen many examples of this in the Religion Forum, of Catholics standing as judge over many aspects of Catholic thought:

Is it dissent to challenge a lay Catholic's beliefs? Is there anything to which a lay Catholic, or even a non-Catholic, may hold a priest, bishop, Cardinal or Pope accountable to? Who/what decides and defines what constitutes dissent? If you have any explanations or theories, I'd love to hear them.
