I'm sorry to be so dense, but I just can't follow this line of thinking. It seems like it is pretty clear to you, but I am so confused. Does anyone find this terribly confusing?

The Pope is a Christian, even if he's not a good one. He's baptised, which makes him a Christian. One who is a heretic separates himself from the Church, but for someone to lose his office, he has to be judged to be a heretic. And nobody has the authority to judge the Pope except God. (The Pope cannot be schismatic, since schism requires rejecting communion with the Pope, and he can't lose communion with himself.)
If schism requires rejecting communion with the Pope, then it doesn't sound like many of you are in communion with the Pope. What does it mean to be in communion with the Pope?
