The Catholic church appear to do so, certainly. That said, so do the Anglicans.
Considering most of the platform doctrine (Catholicism more so than Anglican) has no basis in the bible, I can see why this might be. Many of their
beliefs, rituals and rites are based on post-biblical theory and "Catholic church" decisions. Having such an abundance of "human" (and therefore more
"fallible" and/or changeable than divine) source conveniently lends itself to easier amendments with less "loss of face".
Catholicism and it's Henry VIII offshoot Anglicism, are not the one true face of Christianity. Indeed, Catholicism is so far off from biblical
teachings, it should be a considered religious belief in it's own right IMHO.
BTW I'm not affiliated to any religion - I just have a good knowledge of the bible, it's premise and teachings
My best mate is a Catholic and despite multiple discussions and debate, Catholicism has always been - and continues to be - a complete enigma to me
