I think they'll be forced eventually to confront the errors of papal infallibility and apostolic succession.
Their problem isn't the current Pope, it's Vatican II. Nothing will come of this.
Exactly right. There are a number of dissident Roman Catholic groups and they don't amount to much, whether they are technically in communion with Rome or not.
A more serious challenge is coming from the German bishops, who are considering allowing some divorced-and-remarried Catholics to take communion and to allow the church to employ remarried divorcees and men and women living in same-sex relationships. (A big thing, given that the Roman church is the second-largest employer in Germany.)
The Vatican had to send out its enforcer (the prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith) to tell the German bishops that they don't have the authority to make such changes. As the National Catholic Reporter put it, the prefect said "that doctrinal, or even disciplinary, decisions regarding marriage and family are not up for determination by national bishops’ conferences."
