Am I a Catholic?

I am a Catholic, it is my religion, but it is not my faith.
I believe in one God, I love my neighbours and I love asylum seekers and refugees,
I support marriage equality and euthanasia,
I believe in contraception and IVF and abortion.

Am I still a Catholic?

Yes you are, yup... Sorry, but it's the truth. I think the term is cafeteria Catholic but you are still devout and your place of home is in the Catholic Church of society and members that support each other. You can have fun visiting variety priest and your local bishop and bet money they will have various answers. I have been there and gone through it, maybe you need to as well? I spent a few years questioning where I belonged but found my own answers. We are all humans and by nature question everything, have fun in your journey.
