The order is as follows: (1) Pope; overruled by (2) council of bishops (hence the importance of vatican 2); overruled by (3) vox populi (no longer damned if we eat meat on fridays, get cremated when we die, practice contraception, don't go to mass every sunday and holy day, abolition of limbo); overruled by (4) personal conscience which we must follow. It seems that the roman curia do not wish to give up their power over people but the sanction of everlasting damnation has gone. RC is still a negative instead of a positive religion as long as questioners are silenced. Maybe i'll become a humanist.
