What are you talking about?! The Church has, for centuries, offered indulgences for reading the Bible in an effort to encourage non-clerics to read Scripture.

If you mean to interpret it, only the Magisterium can do that, not every Tom, Dick, and Harry in a clerical collar.


I have seen a priest challenge people saying - Can you interpret the Gospels??  Yes I can.  When I read my brain takes it in and processes and keep trying to understand deeper.  I do look outside for guidance when things are less clear.  But I'm seeing Catholics conditioned to reject what anyone tells them based on this concept - even if it's a well studied, orthodox person.

In contrast, many of these people are not well studied enough to know when Fr. so and so is way off base, or leaving out the hard teachings that are the true lessons in a particular passage.
