Q&A

Is Rosemary Radford Ruether right when she says the idea of papal infallibility is untenable?

Question:

According to theologian Rosemary Radford Ruether, infallibility of the pope is untenable because no human perception of truth can be stated in a manner that lacks error or inadequacy. All ideas must be open to revision. Besides, the Church has erred repeatedly. Example: slavery. (By the way, is this woman Catholic?)<br />
