The Third Opinion – Commentary by Fr. Paul Kramer

Refer to this post and this post.

3) That a pope who is even a manifest heretic is not deposed ipso facto and cannot be deposed by the Church.

“Number Three is false, because, (as I have proven in Volume One), it is de fide that a public heretic is severed from membership ipso facto by the very nature of heresy, and loses office ipso jure; but a public heretic who remains pope while no longer a member would still be the chief member; and he would still hold office even after losing his office ipso jure. The consideration of these absurdities proves that the opinion is against the Catholic faith; yet, this opinion is still popular among many ignorant Catholics.”
