Get off my back. Just because I do not worship John Paul II does not mean I don’t accept the teaching authority of the Church. There’s a HUGE difference between the teaching of the Church and the opinion of the pope. You’d do well to remember that.
This is not a question meant to spark a debate, I was just curious as to why it is worded the way it is.
Imagine me saying ‘It was a hot day … and I went for a drive’. Does that mean I went for a drive BECAUSE it was a hot day? Not necessarily. The ‘and’ just means the two events either happened together or occured reasonably proximately in time, not that one was the cause (or the only cause) of the other.
