I was watching a traditionalist Catholic show on "ChurchMilitantTV" with Michael Voris. It was on contraception and baptists.Usually I agree with catholics when they talk about scripture and authority but this one made me think.He said that without the authority of the Church, protestants are lost in endless bible interpretations.I accept the catholic and pre-1970's orthodox approach to contraception so i am in agreement with Voris. But then i thought about how diverse orthodoxy is now split on the subject and it disturbed me. I then realized what this post is about. Concerning this issue, catholics are on the same "authority" ground as us.Yeah they have a Pope but humane vitae is nor infallible nor is the consensus of bishops. It is entirely possible in catholic teaching for the pope and 90% of bishops to be heretics as long as they are not speaking ex cathedra or in council.So on contraception,we are speaking with the same authority that they are: from the mind of the Fathers. I think this blows away their "you dont have a pope so your lost on this subject" argument. I post this because I am looking for holes in my argument.Do any of you guys see any?
