Sorry --
Been away for a while. Indeed, the Catholic doctrine of the superiority of tradition DOES make the scriptures irrelevant. I suppose that is one of the reasons they are instructed (generally) to not read the Bible for themselves.

Catholics are instructed to read the Bible. INTERPRETING it for themselves without knowing the context of Catholic belief is what gets people confused -- see all the different Protestant interpretations as evidence.
