Do you mean that it’s not absolute or that it can have significant contribution here?[/quote:3hqzs0rq]
Meaning that simply because one is of a certain age and not an ordained status does not make that person just as or even more knowledgeable than one with such criteria. i.e. some priests who have been at it for 40 years are dolts in these areas.
Granted Benedict and I are not the end all be all. However, I do concur that other people are able to articulate things in a way that makes sense better for certain people.
