Is the Pope my boss?

In his post on Catholicism and contraception, which I criticized earlier, Judge Richard Posner opines that:

The Roman Catholic Church is a huge “corporation,” ....

Wrong again. Neither as a legal, theological, nor practical matter is the Roman Catholic church viewed as a single corporation. I address this issue in my article The Bishop's Alter Ego.

No, it turns out that different parts of "the Church" have their independence to various extents. Mr. Bainbridge explains why.
