Papal infallibility

I could go on, but this is a discussion for another thread, I think You may be butthurt all you want because someone don't agree with you and some point of views in Catholicism (mind you, that I'm still a member of the Catholic Church, and I'm perfectly content being a "liberal" Catholic), because to ME it's not being offensive to disagree.

I'm not being all over you or any other religious person, saying "Stop it! I think this is wrong and therefore you MUST think it's wrong too". What I am saying is that I think that that part of Catholicism is wrong, people don't have to agree with me, but I use my freedom of speech to say on a public forum that as sweet and kind as this new Pope probably is, I think he's completely wrong on subjects such as abortion and gay peoples right to marry etc., but I also know that he's not "allowed" to publicly say anything else than that he's against it.

In other words, I'm not forcing anyone to share my opinions, however I do use my liberty to state aforementioned opinion, and I still don't see what's the offense in saying that I think that some of his opinions are wrong.
Actually the pope, unlike a reigning monarch doesn't have to toe the line and say what is expected of him. Thanks to papal infallibility he can say whatever he wants and it is considered right and divinely inspired allowing him to change any church law he sees fit. I think you rushed to judge Pope Francis based on the views of his predecessor Benedict just as Benedict went against the views of pope JPII in his views in gays. JPII declared that being gay want a sin, it was natural but the act if sex outside of marriage was a sin, but he took no stance on gay marriage publicly. Benedict overturned that almost instantly. Now Francis with the meek words "as long as they are good people who am I to judge" turned a who new church view on the situation. H is taking a "do good Abdul good things happen approach" which being gay myself means a lot to hear someone saying that as opposed to the "evil, worst thing to happen to the world" remarks that Benedict lived to say.

I apologise for asking a little out of topic question.

Actually I know enough things about Catholicism, even being Eastern Orthodox. First of all, in my family there are Catholics, though they are practically non-practicing.

Watching Vatican Holy messes so far, I've observed different ways of taking communion (Eucharist). There was once when I saw members receiving at Holy Communion wine and host, but mostly only host.

On Wiki it is said that both variants are possible. But mostly I observed that Catholics take at Holy Communion only the host.

When I was In France I visited a church, where people received the host and wine at Communion.

Does it depend of preasts or do different Catholic national churches have their own "rules" of taking Eucharist?

Thanks in advance.

Don't know where you got your info about papal infallibility and how things work in changing things within the Church but it's in error.

Your understanding of pope Francis's position on homosexual actions may be in error as well....not sure what you actually think he said. Pope Benedict ...I would like to see a link to those remarks because I am pretty sure you are not quoting him accurately.

None of the popes you mentioned have said homosexual acts are natural...not sure where you heard that one either.

The bishop of a dioceses can make some changes but whatever he changes can't be a contradiction to what is allowed by the Church itself.

As far as the Church is concerned....you may receive either species, the Body and the Blood both or you can just receive one. You may receive in the hand or on the tongue.

There are not any 'national' Catholic Churches. There are different rites such as the Eastern rite where I believe they actually use the method of intinction when they receive the Body and Blood.
