Should The Catholic Church Publicly Elect Its Leaders?
Having democratic elections is the most fair way of selecting leaders.
The Church exists to serve the spiritual needs of its followers. They should do what helps their members feel closer to Christ.
Most voters vote in their self-interest, not in the interest of the organisation. This makes democratic elections inherently unfair due to the amount of biased input.
The purpose of the church is not to be popular or representative, but to follow what their religion teaches is correct.
