Jeff Duntemann's ContraPositive Diary
Jeff Duntemann's ContraPositive Diary: I believe Jeff is confusing an infallible statement on church doctrine (which comes at most every hundred years or so) and an encyclical, such as Humanae Vitae. You don't need to follow every one of them to be a Catholic. You just need to believe the creed, which is recited at every mass. That's hard enough. If the former were true, every Catholic who supported the death penalty would be excommunicated.
