Queen Elizabeth & Pope Francis & A Bottle Of Whiskey
Student: I want to return to the principal response that you gave to my objection that one is not allowed to appeal from a pope definitively proclaiming the Christian law to be false and to discuss this response somewhat further. I would like, accordingly, to hear why the aforementioned theorists assert that it is expedient to proceed with an appeal from this judgement of a heretic pope.
Master: They assign three reasons, among others, for this statement. The first is that a remedy be provided against an unjust sentence in a case of faith similar to the one provided against other kinds of unjust sentences. The second is: so that an unjust sentence rendered against the catholic faith be opposed with greater solemnity. The third is: so that simple people and lawyers might be reassured. Unless an appeal were issued against this sentence, they might perhaps not believe that it is permitted to oppose some unjust sentence against the faith, and that the actual opponent is to be defended by catholics.
