Perhaps you're under the misimpression that the Church doesn't allow individual translation? That is not to say, though, that one's individual translation will mesh with official church teaching. And that differs with mainline Protestantism in what way?

Was the RCC right to stop the English from translating and owning Bibles?

Yes, or no.

If it's not 'no', it's 'yes'.

Did the Church not essentially answer this question with Vatican II?

So the answer is that the RCC was wrong to stop the English from translating and owning Bibles!

To the law courts.

Typical of evangelicals, you must see everything in strict black-and-white terms.

I understand that many protestants are opposed to a central governing body for some unknown reason. I don't think that for your nation's government, you would prefer anarchy, would you? What you have is just short of anarchy. What is wrong with an Authoritative body which ultimately determines doctrine by folks who are never self-appointed.

Attention non-Catholics: Catholics do not worship the Pope. He has no effect on me on my day to day living outside of my spiritual life. He is not my dictator. He is a very educated and spiritual man who has high level degrees in theology, history, and philosophy and can converse in mulitple languages. He was elected by his peers to succeed the previous Pope. By the power of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 16:18) and by Apostolic Succession, Catholic believe he cannot teach false doctrines when speaking ex cathedra (from the chair).

Someone has to lead. That's the reality of ANY FUNCTIONING organization.

The reason is extremely clear, if somewhat uncomfortable. Those who do not have the Holy Spirit have a 'pope'; those who have the Holy Spirit think it lunatic, frankly, to have a 'pope'.
