Does Skojec's Theologian of "Universal Acceptance" happen to be Vatican II Architect Maritain's Top Theologian?

Steve Skojec has been apparently claiming John of St. Thomas's idea on "universal acceptance" of popes is infallible Catholic doctrine.

It appears that he got this conviction about the importance of this theologian from Robert Siscoe.

So far, as far as I can find, the only other modern theologian who considers John of St. Thomas (John Poinsot) that important is Jacques Maritain whose disciple was Pope Paul VI. Paul VI said:

"I am a disciple of Maritain. I call him my teacher."

Paul VI's teacher was a close collaborator of Saul Alinsky who wrote in Rules for Radicals: "I have always believed birth control and abortion are personal rights."

Maritain called Alinsky a "practical Thomist" according to lawyer Chris Ferrara.

Maritain is considered by many to be a architect of Vatican II.

According to the American Maritain Association:

Pointsot (John of St. Thomas) is central to understanding Maritain's theology which was central to Paul VI's Vatican II:

"Maritain's own advocacy of Pointsot, whose writings are a sine qua non for understanding Maritain's own 'intellectual locale' as a Thomist."
(American Maritain Association,, "John Deeply and Jacques Maritain Chair of Philosophy," Professor Schulz, 2 years ago)

Just how infallible is Pointsot?

If Skojec can't find a pope or council to support his idea, can he at least find a Doctor of the Church or at least a saint to support it.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

You know, Fred, research isn't that hard. I'm not claiming it as infallible. That would be absurd. What I said in my actual post, which was only 471 words long and wouldn't have taken that much time to read, is:

"I am posting this today as a point of reference. I see a lot of argument over what “universal acceptance” means, but it’s much simpler than people think. And if the explanation of John of St. Thomas is correct — and I have no reason to believe that it isn’t — then we can see that Francis was universally accepted."

You know, Steve, research isn't that hard. Please read John of St. Thomas who talked about past popes not present popes as a scholar at Von Veni Pacem in the post "Friendly Challenge to Robert Siscoe" who could read Latin convincingly showed. Your "universal acceptance" idea is not infallible or certain as I show in my post "1P5's Skojec claims "that a Pope Universally Accepted is Infallibly Certain," but is it Infallible or Certain?"

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk
