If "anti-Catholicism" is defined simply by disagreement with some subset of Church teachings, as you seem to be saying above, then the label is essentially useless. Obviously there are different kinds of anti-Catholicism, ranging in severity from disagreement with Catholic teachings, to d...

There are plenty of Catholics who not only do not "adhere to Catholic teaching on sexuality" but actively oppose it. Are they "anti-Catholic"? Yes -- obviously! How can a person oppose the core moral teachings of the Catholic Church without thereby setting themselves in oppositi...

Were you not distinguishing between "non-compliance" and "LGBT opinions"? (Setting aside the fact that CD hasn't engaged in non-compliance, with the possible exception of the recently passed Access to Abortion, so I don't really understand what you're talking about.) Well that's...

Had a Catholic with the record of CD, sans the non-compliance and LGBT opinions, been at vote, this would pass. Ditto for UM. This is like saying "I'm not anti-Jewish, I just think male circumcision should be banned" or "I'm not anti-Muslim, I just think halal food preparation practi...

What is wrong with self-commending one's region? You probably aren't aware of this, but self-commend attempts are frowned upon. The most notorious being Auralia's attempt at a self-commend a few years ago. To the extent that it is "notorious", it is only so because people like you keep br...
