probably the ideal would be if our conscience and the teachings of the Catholic Church always agreed.
And if somebody is a convinced Catholic, he or she will probably NOT feel something is right to do if it is against church teachings.
So then going against church teachings WOULD also be going against your conscience.
Maybe what tells us to do otherwise sometimes isn’t really our conscience?
I do believe somehow that deep inside we all know what is good.
There are some borderline cases probably where the teachings aren’t completely clear-cut (example that just came to mind: Following civil law when you feel it is inhumane).
Then, a question I was asking myself: If the question wasn’t “could it be sinful” but “could it be mortally sinful”, what would the answer be then?
Because by definition, a mortal sin can only be committed if you know something is sinful. And when you feel your conscience telling you otherwise, then you don’t really “know” it is sinful… but shaky grounds, kind of, this.
So I didn’t vote. Because I am not sure.
