I encourage your call for debate free thread, but knowing this forum, don't expect one! Still, miracles have been known to happen.
I'm no scholar, but here are my thoughts on the video:
I like Father Barron a lot. He's very personable and tends to empathize with the side that he's trying to gently disprove.
The video was a response to a book that I haven't read, so I can't see the whole argument. However, what Fr. Barron had to say about authority and the Church, I think, was largely orthodox. He only mentioned the pope once, and that was followed by "and the bishops."
While I don't think he was implying that the pope (i.e. the bishop of Rome) and the other bishops are equals (which is what we Orthodox believe), I appreciate how he stressed collegiality
. I listen to Catholic radio, and it really ruffles my feathers when the host or guest of a show keeps throwing out terms like "the successor of Peter" and "the vicar of Christ" while completely ignoring the rest of the Church leaders.
The most important point that Fr. Barron made is that the Church is guided by the Holy Spirit. With that, we Orthodox can agree wholeheartedly.
