      No, that is the whole point isn't it. Popes never claim to be recipients of public revelations from God and completely reject any suggestion that anything they say or wrote is inspired but protestants who are ignorant of Catholic teaching keep saying that he does and is.

      The pope, the vicar (substitute) of Christ on the earth.

      Funny how the pope takes a pagan title.
      The Pontifex Maximus (Latin, literally: "greatest pontiff" or "greatest bridge-builder") was the high priest of the College of Pontiffs (Collegium Pontificum) in ancient Rome. This was the most important position in the ancient Roman religion.

      It's a Latin title (not pagan) and it means Great bridge builder

      The pagan high priest held the title in ancient Rome. Care to excuse your pontiff some more?

      I like his title as great bridge builder. It explains what a Christian leader ought to be.

      Yes, he did use Assyria and Babylon to judge Israel and Judea in different periods of time. It is an example of how God can use even evil people to fulfill his purposes. However, he didn't approve of all of their deeds. If he did, he would not have gone on to judge them also. There are plenty of references to the judgment of both Assyria and Babylon. If they were simply doing what he asked them to do then it would have been cruel to turn around and judge them for it.
