comment Scriptural basis for replacement ideology/theology
... Jews no longer have a valid relationship with G-d, unless they become Christians I don't think this is really an accurate representation of most (or perhaps any) Christian theology. Can you point us to a specific group which believes this? That would make it easier to address the question. Otherwise, I'm inclined to believe this question is likely based on a misconception about Christianity...

comment Is there a Biblical precedent for the Petrine privilege?
Good question. And +1 for asking if there is a Biblical precedent, as opposed to assuming there is one with a question like "What is the Biblical precedent...?"

comment Is there a Biblical precedent for the Petrine privilege?
I think this is probably the right answer, but limiting it to the New Testament isn't sufficient. The Catholic church also uses the Old Testament and the Apocrypha as scripture canon. Is there any Biblical precedent in these works?

Why do you assume that every action any church makes automatically has a biblical basis? Wouldn't it be better to ask how they justify an action, which would lend itself to discussing a Biblical basis, if there is one, as well as discussing other possible motives?

This does not provide an answer to the question. To critique or request clarification from an author, leave a comment below their post - you can always comment on your own posts, and once you have sufficient reputation you will be able to comment on any post.

I think if FMS could produce official Catholic doctrine stating what he states in his summary statement (and thus implying that the Catholic church interprets the verse about the "day and the hour" to apply even after the event), I would consider it a good answer. But as it is, it's making some assumptions which I believe are not warranted.

comment Can the Pope speak ex cathedra about the return of Christ?
@DavidStratton: It answers whether the Pope can speak about the "day and the hour" of the second coming. Once the second coming has occurred, it says nothing about whether the Pope can then speak ex cathedra about the past event. Or am I missing something?

So what is the precise question?

comment Can the Pope speak ex cathedra about the return of Christ?
Not knowing the day and the hour is usually interpreted to mean one cannot predict the second coming. That's different than the question posed, however.

@mojo: Depends on what you mean by "unnoticed by anyone."
