You non Catholics need to step off on this. They are WELL WITHIN THEIR RIGHT to disicipline their flock as they see fit. If these “pretending Catholics” don’t want to accept correction from the Catholic Church …..let them “join” the Episcopalians or Lutherans………. or satanistsinists or what ever. It’s not a social club its a Church. Disicipline and correction for the good of the individual and the other memebers is part of it. …Its really none of your concern.
