Oh, those nutty Catholics. First, go read the article here and then we'll talk.
First of all, I'd like to just offer up a bit of an apology to the Pope. I am so sorry I didn't recognize him. It's the hat. I just thought he was one of those Red Hat Ladies. If he wants me to recognize him he's got to wear that hat that's like 6 foot tall. That's hard to miss.
As far as the article goes, there's nothing to say. They say they're the universal church. Everybody else says they're not. All I can say is stack what the Catholics do next to scripture and you'll have your answer.
