Anthony Stine, PhD @pontificatormax...I wish people [like Eric Sammons] would address his argument instead of engaging in detraction of this kind. My only question is this: does the priest have the authority to do this?

Sad to see Fr. Altman go down the sedevacantist path. He's responsible for his actions, of course, but I also blame his bishop for essentially kicking him to the curb for political reasons.
Bergoglio is not the Pope
Father James Altman is an inspiring Roman Catholic priest who has dedicated his life to servingGod and spreading the message of the Gospel. Originally from t...

Does a priest--or anyone--need to possess a certain "authority" in order to perceive reality and comment upon it? Eric Sammons is willing to engage in rank intellectual dishonesty; Father Altman is not. Anthony Stine is a devoted Catholic and balanced podcaster who needs to stop asking everybody else what they think, and to start drawing some (admittedly) uncomfortable conclusions on his own.

The notion that only members of the hierarchy are allowed to excercise the faculties of intellect and will given to them by God is a cult-like--not Catholic--conviction. During the time of the Arian crisis, should lay people have restricted themselves to a studied neutrality about the subject of Christ's divinity, until the crisis was over? No! Lay people cannot declare doctrine or remove an antipope, but they don't have to pretend not to know what they do know, in the meanwhile.

It is deeply disturbing that people seem ready to pit rationality against the Faith, as though being a good Catholic means being prepared to blind yourself to observation and reflection. This goes completely against the essence of Catholicism, not to mention contradicting the witness of countless saints and converts who have studied the Faith, or studied themselves into it.

Where will it end? If the "Synod" declares what we think it might, will podcasters tell us we have no right to an opinion on such matters, either?

Spot on commentary Justina!
It’s a good thing that St. Catherine knew the faith!
Bishop Fulton Sheen said that the LAITY will save the Church.
Catholics have a DUTY to proclaim the truth and call out the hierarchy to DO THEIR JOB and uphold the unchanging Truths of the Faith!

Why is Sammons the pharisee blaming fr. Altman?
Why is Sammons the pharisee blaming even his bishop?

Why is Sammons the pharisee not blaming his Bergoglio-seems-to-be-a-pope-because-he-seems-to-be-universally-accepted-whatever-that-might-have-to-mean?

Bill Barr, Paul Ryan & Jeb Bush endorsed DeSantis who endorsed RINO O'Dea who "IS TOAST, [BY] US[ING] WARMONGER GEORGE W. BUSH TO CAMPAIGN FOR HIM...Who’s next? Dick [& Liz]Cheney?"

A week ago, Colorado senate republican candidate  Joe O’Dea  said on CNN , “I don’t think Donald Trump should run again.” He quickly added, ” I’m going to actively campaign against Donald Trump and make sure that we have got four or five really great Republicans right now; Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley and Tim Scott.” President Trump blasted O’Dea the following day { link }. Today, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis picked Joe O’Dea as his only 2022 endorsed senate candidate { link }, recording a robocall for O’Dea that says, “ Hello this is Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. America needs strong leadership and desperately. That’s why I’m endorsing Joe O’Dea for U.S. Senate. Colorado, please vote for Joe O’Dea .” [...] Face it. This is what is clear. The DeSantis 2024 organizers are a mixture of allied republican establishment figures, corporate party donors and former Ted Cruz base supporters (Never Trumpers) who have united in common cause to stop the MAGA working-class coalition from taking full con
