If the pope is infallible, does that mean that screwing children is no longer a sin?

screwing children by proxy has never been a sin.

Depends on if the required blessing was used. (Hi, Kick)

@kickycan,
In a moment of seriousness, I heard it explained that regarding the Pope's infallibility (as imaginary as it is) that it only relates to his interpretation as it relates to dogma.

"...this dogma, however, does not state either that the Pope cannot sin in his own personal life or that he is necessarily free of error, even when speaking in his official capacity, outside the specific contexts in which the dogma applies."

I think he's been wrong about the weather forecasting, Superbowl and the Final Four, as well.

@Ragman,
You're right, the dogma specific condition was what I, at least, was taught. Thus all the foolery of ages could be sloughed aside.


I think I need to work up some vatican gelato, er, Gelato vaticano.

We need fruit. Eggs, find me some nuns. Milk, find me some nun colostrum.
On the fruit, melon, of course. I think this particular coppa di gelato needs a cherry on the top. Cilegie - Cherries Jubilee. Watch for the good years.

@kickycan,
No, no, no, the sin, as always, is getting caught.

@kuvasz,
Analagous to Greek history, where in Spartan' culture, the crime was not stealing (as an example), but in getting caught.

The pope is only infallible when speaking ex cathedra or from his throne on matters of faith and governance.

@plainoldme,
Not governance, unless something new has slipped in.
Dogma.
