BASIC R.C. BELIEF
A formal denial or doubt by any baptized person of any revealed truth of
the Roman Catholic faith. Heretics are automatically ex-communicated. All
distinctively Protestant teachings are heresies.
From BRIEF AND SIMPLE EXPLANATION OF THE CATHOLIC CATECHISM, R.P. Angel
Maria de Arcos, S.J., "The moment any man publiucly professes heresy, and
attempts to pervert others by word or example, he cannot only, absolutely
speaking, be excommunicated but even justly slain, lest by his pestilent
contagion the ruin very many others."
POST VATICAN II
With the new ecumenical friendliness, Roman Catholics now refer to
Protestants as separated brethren, not heretics. Dr. David DuPleiss termed
this "a wonderful act of forgiveness by the Holy Father" (Candlestick Park,
San Francisco, CA, June 2, 1979).
