    Only God can "confer" sainthood.

    To you, based on your thoughts about the supernatural, the idea that an individual such as the pope should stand as the "vicar of Christ" and bestow "sainthood" upon anyone must be the height of hypocrisy.

    It is to me!

    Does that answer you question?

    It doesn't bother me if a particular church or group or community promotes or recognizes heroes or inspirational people. It certainly isn't "hypocrisy". What definition of "hypocrisy" are you using?

    I think you are using the word "hypocrisy" incorrectly.

    This is not what the word "hypocrisy" means.

    Maybe.

    I think it's hypocritical to put on a mask showing oneself to be something one is not.

    The hierarchal structure of the Catholic Church is presumptive in that it bestows on an individual, such as the pope, an authority and privilege reserved for Christ only.

    Now, if you know your Bible like you should, since you spent so large a part of your life claiming to be a Christian, you would understand how that the pope is a hypocrite.

    You're not using the word "hypocrisy" correctly. He may take upon himself too much power or inspire too many people for your liking, you may even disagree with there being Catholic "saints" and may think a sainthood for Oscar Romero is a mistake, but none if this is "hypocrisy".
