If you care to even watch the documentary, there are many sources cited. Including the quote given.
Just be ready, because the logic here is "if it's on the internet, it's not credible". The next logic is "prove it". So tell me, are you going to go seek documents from the 1800's to verify, or do you just want to google it?
This is rich...I'm still waiting for the answer to my question to you about the the identity of the father of Jesus in that thread on the ever-virginity of Mary (it's been weeks), yet here I make a comment about my uncertainty regarding the accuracy of a quote from a Pope, and you jump at my logic.
My logic is not that "If it's on the internet, it's not credible", my logic is "Just because it's on the internet doesn't mean it's credible". This logic can also be expressed in another way: "Just because it's claimed in a three hour Youtube video doesn't mean it's credible".
I don't have time in my life to watch a three hour video whose premise is this:
A Lamp in the Dark is an exciting new documentary that unfolds the fascinating "untold" history of the Bible, revealing critical information often overlooked in modern histories. Enter into a world of saints and martyrs battling against spies, assassins and wolves in sheep's clothing.
Throughout the Middle Ages, the Papal Inquisition forbade biblical translation, threatening imprisonment and death to those who disobeyed. Learn the stories of valiant warriors of the faith, such as John Wycliffe, William Tyndale, Martin Luther, the ancient Waldenses, Albigenses and others who hazarded their lives for the sake of sharing the Gospel light with a world drowning in darkness.
Once the common people were able to read the Bible, the world was turned upside down through the Protestant Reformation. The Reformers subdued whole kingdoms by preaching the grace of God, and exposing the unbiblical doctrines of Rome. In response, the Vatican would launch a Counter Reformation to destroy the work of the Reformers, including the bibles they produced.
Reading that premise alone is enough to inspire doubts about how thorough the scholarship was. But that's me.
Anyway, thanks to your post, I was able to watch the three minutes you cited. I note that most of the quotes are not from primary sources, but from secondary sources. The quotes may very well be true, but if they are, then certainly the original citation is in the book the film chooses to quote. Why not just post that? After all,
"He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day; if he prays a Pater, an Ave, and a Gloria for my intentions, I'll even remit his time in purgatory--no one needs a tan that bad! It's good to be the Pope!!" Pope Benedict XVI, Homily at the Basilica of St Paul Outside the Walls, 28 June 2010 Acta Apostolicae Sedis 100 (2010), 437-439
has a lot more credibility than
"He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day; if he prays a Pater, an Ave, and a Gloria for my intentions, I'll even remit his time in purgatory--no one needs a tan that bad! It's good to be the Pope!!" Pope Benedict XVI, quoted in Jack Chick, The Roman Antichrist, Abomination of Desolation
But as it is, only if I'm really curious will I make the effort to get these books from the library, search for the citations, and then verify them. Or I can be gullible and just believe it because someone with an ax to grind told me so in their three hour video. It's telling that they can quote and cite documents like Unam Sanctam
but other quotes have to be relayed less directly. That makes me suspicious. The quotes may all be true...I just think they hurt their case by citing lesser documents. Or, maybe they're lies, or mistranslations, or something similar, but they don't want us to catch on.
