I am new to Catholicism, and the church in which I attend claims to be one of the few true Catholic Churches left. This is mainly because they say that most other churches have shamefully given in to modernism which allows things into the Catholic Church which were never meant to be. Things such as eliminating the Latin Mass, allowing homosexuality, telling people that it is okay to divorce and re-marry, providing contraception …things like that.
I guess, as a person studying this new religion (new to me), I can’t help but wonder: If people who are supposedly “true Catholics” and especially those of high authority know that conforming to such modern ways of thinking are mortal sins…then how could they allow these things to happen? Shouldn’t the people allowing these things be excommunicated?
Please excuse my ignorance. I am still learning. How can I find the answers if I do not ask the questions?
