I don't see why not. Why can't the truth be simple? Why can't the answer be pointed out in a church document?
This situation seems a lot different than the difficulty of converting. In that situation the priest had to work to dismantle the barriers to the truth and then present the truth, so there were complexities there but this seems more like I'm being asked to weave and bob and contort myself and close one eye and so on to have this all make sense. 
 


The truth is not always simple.  

We can point out church documents to make a point all we want, but it would useless to do that without the consideration of their doctrinal value, historical context, and what has been said about said document by competent persons in the church(particularly on points of legitimate dispute).  

Ignoring the pope's day to day chater doesn't equate to keeping one eye closed.  You, already know the guy is a bit off.  Pray and take the time to study the issue further.  


Not to sound like a broken record but:

My word choices are based on sound, not meaning.

Yes, that defeats the purpose of language.
