Friday Frivolity: Excommunicating The Pope

16 Mar

A few days ago, there was an article over at Shameless Popery which asked the question What if a Bishop (or the Pope) is Morally Wrong?  It was a superb blog entry, up to Joe’s usual high standard. If you haven’t read it, you really should… you are subscribed to Shameless Popery right?!

I’ve often come across Protestants who think that the Catholic Doctrine of Papal Infallibility means that every word that comes out of the mouth of the Pope is 100% true and orthodox. This is not true! Joe’s article explains this in more detail and looks specifically at an example from the life of Pope John XXII.

When I read the article I had flashbacks to a YouTube video I stumbled upon a while ago so I went and dug it out again. I feel a little bad for posting this for Friday Frivolity, but there are so many things in this video which are just so…so….well, watch it….you’ll see…

If that’s not enough for you today, I’d suggest you go watch the “Pope Michael” documentary

    I should probably have watched the whole video but the first part of it irritated me so much that I couldn’t make it through. I think video is more penitential than frivilous haha :)

      It gets even better :) At 2:44 he performs the excommunication ceremony itself…

        are you sure you mean “better”?? hahaha I think if the guy doing this wasn’t in a collar I would be able to watch it — like if it was some crazy guy with liturgical dancers behind him… but this person just makes me sad!
