Ever since 2009 I stopped attending mass at a Catholic Church and instead have regularly attended a Lutheran Church. After reading the Bible, I personally believed that Lutheranism was a better option than Catholicism. Anyways, I have not been to a Catholic Church in five years (with the exception of weddings and funerals) but I have been going to the Lutheran Church often. I am an open heretic of the Church of Rome and a schist as well (I’ve got a picture of Martin Luther in my room on my wall and I will be getting the Lutheran cross tattooed on my arm). I recently found out that the Church has been counting me as a Catholic. Is there any current process to get an asterisk next to my name or something so I won’t be counted?
Please respect my decision to be a Protestant as I respect yours to be a Catholic. Please don’t try and convince me because my mind is set and done.
