I think a discussion of the Siri Thesis might be profitable on a separate thread, if the webmaster permits.
Too much has been said already.
We can't have a discussion for the simple reason that Vox and I won't have people stating that those who have been Popes in the Vatican are not Popes whether it is the single election of Cdl. Siri or every Pope from St. Pius X on.
If everyone can say, "The Siri Thesis is wrong" and the ones that hold to this thesis are not allowed to counterargue then there wouldn't be much of a discussion anyhow.
I know people are chomping at the bit to discuss things like this, but it's not going to happen here. Maybe you guys can set up a Yahoo group or something for that. They're free and those who are interested can join up.http://groups.yahoo.com
So, I'm going to lock this thread and leave you guys with that suggestion.
Certainly, feel free to make a post inviting people if anyone sets up a sede-vs-non-sede Yahoo discussion group or something. That's perfectly fine.
