Concerning Lay Preaching and Such
#15
As a matter of fact the Quinisext council was not approved by the Western Chruch, that is not ecumenical council.

As for the preaching, anyone (lay person, deacon, priest, bishop) is subject to the authority of the Magisterium. 'To preach' need explicit authorization  from the Magisterium or from approved intermediate authority. Without this anyone is allowed to sound out his/her opinion (outside the Liturgy) but never as the authorized teaching of the Church.

Here is from the General Instruction of the Roman Missal:

66. The Homily should ordinarily be given by the priest celebrant himself. He may entrust it to a concelebrating priest or occasionally, according to circumstances, to the deacon, but never to a lay person.65 In particular cases and for a just cause, the homily may even be given by a Bishop or a priest who is present at the celebration but cannot concelebrate.

In more generic sense what happens here in this forum that certain people declare statements as heresy, is certainly against the rules of the Catholic Church. The Church is hierarchical jurisdictional body of Jesus Christ under the pope and the bishops, and even the priests are teaching having authority from that Church.
