Why do claimed Christians talk about JW's GB when you have an RCC who believes he's "God in the earth" with authority to change Bible?
“The Pope is of great authority and power that he can modify, explain, or interpret even divine laws... The Pope can modify divine law, since his power is not of man, but of God, and he acts as vicegerent of God upon earth." -Lucius Ferraris, Prompta Ribliotheca, " Papa," Part. 2, translated."
"The Pope has the power to change times, to abrogate [to abolish, do away with, or annul] laws, and to dispense with all things, even the precepts of Christ." Decretal, de Tranlatic Episcop. Cap. (The Pope can modify divine law.) Ferraris' Ecclesiastical Dictionary."

Change the Bible? Why would the RCC "change" a book of its own writings, compiled by its own bishops at the instruction of the Pope?

Because we have the words of Jesus Christ, in the Bible, along with the constant tradition and history of the Catholic Church, to backup the truth of the papacy, while all we have to back up JW's is a couple of false prophets, with no divine authority, at all.Source(s): www.askmeaboutgod.org

You might want to ask that question again
being much, much more clear
and much, much more precise.
It is extremely rarely that I talk about JW'S GB.
I don't have an RCC.
The RCC is not a "he".
Anyone living on Earth who believes that he is "God in the earth" is a loon.

Are you speaking of the pope? Who believes he is god on earth? I don't think anyone believes he's god on earth. He is regarded as one who speaks for the catholics. He may be regarded as one who speaks for god, but there are many who claim this.

Those quotes seem spurious to me, and if they are then the whole premise of your question fails.
Can you give the full references? What is "Decretal, de Tranlatic Episcop. Cap.", and what are the chapter and page references? And what is "Ferraris' Ecclesiastical Dictionary". Who wrote and published it and with what authority? Is it a catholic publication? Does it have an imprimatur and a nihil obstat?

It seems like everyone thinks they can change the Bible. Truth seems to depend on the agenda of the leadership and I don't believe the JWs have a good case to do what they do.

Sorry. I don't know what those abbreviations mean. You will have to be more clear.
