Do we have to listen to the Pope?

Easy to say when the Pope is St Pius X.

But what does it mean to be united in mind and heart with Alexander VI? Are we supposed to think about how enjoyable it must have been for him to fornicate with his mistresses? If he's the Universal Teacher, are we to follow his example? Obviously not.

If the Pope is telling us that atheists go to heaven, and it's okay to worship idols, and adulterers who have no intent of stopping can receive Communion, ignore him. "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema." There have been plenty of bad Popes before, but I'm not sure we've seen one who's so bad doctrinally. Maybe John XXII, but even that was only one issue.
