    Belief as a matter of conscience equals to Wikipedia?

    Strange logic here...

    A "good Catholic" for the RCC is the one who ignores his/her conscience, and follows the doctrine the hierarchy makes up, instead?

    Indeed ;)

      Yes, indeed the Church gives lip service to individual conscience, while damning to hell and excommunication anyone who follows their conscience against the orthodoxy whenever it's threatened by them.

    •  Try getting your baby baptized in a RC church (0+ / 0-)

      if you had it out of wedlock. I know a woman who left the church because of that: her priest refused to baptize her baby. I guess neither she nor the baby were good Catholics, as far as the church was concerned.
