The Eastern Churches and St. Thomas Aquinas

If one objected merely because they don't like the Pope having that authority, you're right.  However if he objects on principle because the bishops could have made the election on their own, and the Pope intervened without good reason, and this can be reasonably certain, there would be nothing arrogant about that. 

Why the nitpicking?  It seems the West may be jealous of the autonomy granted the East...

It isn't nitpicking. I do not really know a lot about how these internal matters are handled.

But I think obedience to a superior is more valuable than autonomy.
