I spent a lot of time trying to rationalize the pope. I never went to the sede view cause with out a pope how can there be a catholic faith. So i was stuck with the idea that there is a pope and he keeping making errors. We had bad bad men as popes in the past so this makes since. It just became harder and harder with Francis. Than i did research on the other side of the pope question. I saw i can be Catholic without a pope. So here I am. The church i go too is more catholic than most catholic church.
