Has the Catholic church been infiltrated by radicals?

I'm seeing more and more examples where so called 'Catholic' politicians are creating or supporting non-Catholic doctrine. Has the Catholic Church been hijacked by radicals in order to gain support of a large religious base, under the radar?

The Roman Church (Catholic) was hijacked long ago. Thomas Aquinas polluted the word by mixing it with Aristotelianism. Various Popes introduced novel concepts to the Word. Indeed the Roman Church originated in the 11th century when the then bishop of Rome in a fit of Hubris declared himself Pope, contrary to scripture. And declared doctrine that authority resided in the synod of bishops as heretical. A doctrine he himself previously accepted making himself a former heretic! all the best urban

Exactly how much research did you do on Roman Catholicism before you posted this? Jesus Christ Himself established the Catholic Church. It didn't just spring up in the 11th century. Oh, and the Bishop of Rome IS the Pope. They aren't two different people.

More and from better sources than you by the look of it. The Catholic Church, as you call it was part of the Orthodox Church prior to the 11th century. Jesus Christ established his own Church composed of those that truly accept and follow him, not the pope. In fact Jesus specifically forbids popes. I didn't suggest that the Bishop of Rome and the pope were two different people only that he wasn't called pope prior to 11th century when he split from the Orthodox Church. all the best urban
