So, if you lay aside sloganeering

For the moment, and just let these words of St. Basil sink in:

Concerning the hearers: that those hearers who are instructed in the Scriptures should examine what is said by the teachers, receiving what is in conformity with the Scriptures and rejecting what is opposed to them; and that those who persist in teaching such doctrines should be strictly avoided.—St. Basil the Great, The Morals 

You just might conclude that the whole dust up over "pope of one" and "private judgement" and such might be more than a tad exaggerated. Just sayin.
