We don't need a 'Church document'. There have been Popes who were heretics. Honorius I was declared anathema by the Third Œcumenical Council of Constantinople, which in its 13th session, said, "And with these we define that there shall be expelled from the holy Church of God and anathematized Honorius who was some time Pope of Old Rome, because of what we found written by him to [Patriarch] Sergius, that in all respects he followed his view and confirmed his impious doctrines."

The Sixteenth Session adds: "To Theodore of Pharan, the heretic, anathema! To Sergius, the heretic, anathema! To Cyrus, the heretic, anathema! To Honorius, the heretic, anathema! To Pyrrhus, the heretic, anathema!"

Granted, this was 'eased' by Pope Leo II, but without lifting the anathema. He said, "We anathematize ... Honorius, who did not attempt to sanctify this Apostolic Church with the teaching of Apostolic tradition, but by profane treachery permitted its purity to be polluted."

John XXII was a notorious, open heretic who only repented of his heresy on his death bed.

Both these men are still considered to have been legitimate Popes by the Church. They are included in the official list of the Popes issued by the Vatican.
