I mean I fit most of their criterion for ex-commication: 1.) I do not believe in transubstantiation. 2.) I do not believe Mary was sinless. 3.) I do not believe in forgiveness of sins by a priest. 4.) I do not believe in such a thing as "mortal" sin as I do not believe I can loose my salvation. 5.) I reject the idea of Christians still trying to follow the 10 commandments. 6.) I do not believe in praying to saints. 7.) I do not believe in the existence of a place called purgatory. 8.) I do not believe in prayer for the dead. 9.) I reject the papacy and the concept that the pope is some how the replacement for Christ on earth. 10.) I reject the concept of indulgences. I could continue, but, clearly I am NOT a member of the Roman Catholic Church. Please note: I am not asking for rebuttals or theological arguments on Roman Catholic Doctrine...simply put, I am not going back to the Roman Catholic Church. I am asking Catholics here: How do I get you to stop calling me a "fallen away Catholic" with the implication that I will someday go back. I will not ever again be a member of the Roman Catholic Church. I want to be called "not Catholic" - how do I get that moniker? [/quote] Just follow Jesus, that's all he asked. The world will lie anyway, so don't worry what it says [/quote] Brilliant! :bump::yoda: [/quote]
I was raised in the Roman Catholic Church. I no longer believe most of its doctrine. How can I get present Roman Catholics to say that I am "not Catholic" and not a "fallen away Catholic." I will not ever return to being in the RCC. I would rather saw my own head off than be back in the RCC. Tell me if I am wrong - the RCC is not the mafia - right - once you are in the mafia, you can never leave...is that what the present Roman Catholics believe...you can never leave the RCC? I want to be considered "not Catholic" and not a "fallen away Catholic!"
