Non-Catholic here with a serious question. The more i research Pope Francis the more i see the man has an agenda to re-make the RCC as quickly as possible. Some are reporting that he will push through some new revisions on teachings based on the recommendations of the Synod of Youth. Possible examples could be Communion for divorced, Communion for same sex relationships, etc etc.
It is very easy for Catholics to say, well, if he teaches heresay it doesn’t matter as we will ignore it and/or the next Pope will right the wrongs.
So to put my question in context, i am a non-Catholic who at times ponders returning to Rome but Papal Infallibility really bothers me. So the specific question could be what would happen if Pope Francis announced a heresay ex-cathedra, but the question could also be a more broad - can any Pope announce a heresay ex-cathedra? If so, then it’s a very dangerous doctrine. If not, why not?
Thank you and God bless
