← Dawkins calls for 'Catholic' honesty

Red Dog's Avatar Jump to comment 27 by Red Dog

I know what many Catholics will likely say in response: "the church is made up of the congregation, not just the pope and his edicts" and if they were Unitarians or Quakers or many other faiths they would have a point. But one of the defining features of Catholicism is that its a very hierarchical system. If you don't believe that the pope is infallible,etc. you have no business calling yourself a Catholic. One of the most ironic things I find is that people go into mass every Sunday and recite back all the queues without even thinking about what they are saying.
