I was watching a television program entitled "Pope Fiction" on EWTN ("Eternal Word Television Network") recently. The host's purpose appeared to be to answer critics of the Catholic papacy. I was struck by some of the claims he made on this program. In response to his claims I submitted an e-mail message to him entitled "Papal inspiration." I decided to include the essence of this message, and likely more in the future, on my web site. As always, please feel free to send me a message should you have any questions about this series of articles, or anything else on my site.
