(1) i am not a Catholic
(2) in a discussion w/ a Catholic today he said this (in an email; i am literally extracting [cut and paste] from it)
(2a) " … What I was saying is the offical church’s teaching comes down to conscience. It overides everything else they teach theology wise … "
(3) Is my friend’s contention in (2a) supra, a true statement, as far as OFFICIAL ROMAN CATHOLIC THEOLOGY is concerned? If so, this would seem to imply – to me at least – that, per this position, you can believe pretty much whatever you want and still consider yourself a good catholic, as long as you have a “good conscience” about it.
(4) thank you.
