Isn't the next one supposed to be Petrus Romanus. The last Pope

ACF - there is a very good reason why almost all forums go out of their way to avoid discussing religion - the subject is even more divisive than politics and inevitably leads to rows and slanging matches. For some strange reason - - the 'modern' Catholic church is not all that popular.

I'm glad to see Eshnar with his finger on the pulse here. If this topic stays open, he or other mods will need to keep a close eye on it.

Personally, I have no time for organized religion, and most particularly not for the Catholic church and each new, always disappointing, pope.

Hopefully they'll elect a young* Pope this time.

*As in fifty-sixtyish. That's young in Pope-land...

No but you do have to accept the authority of the Church on doctrine.

not sure what you mean.
btw one of the catholics' dogmas is that the Pope is always right. If you disagree with him, then you're not following one of the catholics' dogmas, hence you're not catholic. Very simple really.
I did say its a technicality (actually Hrotha said that), but it's like that.

It's not exactly like that. The Pope is only infallible when he speaks ex cathedra on doctrinal matters. Benedict XVI for example has never spoken ex cathedra as far as I know.

That's a debatable issue actually. The very same concept of ex cathedra isn't fully definite.
