Catholics for Choice

I just learnt this morning that Catholics for a Free Choice have changed their name to Catholics for Choice. For those that don't know what Catholics for Choice is, it's a group of people that want to be called "Catholic" but don't want to accept all Catholic doctrines, such as the doctrine that abortion is intrinsically evil.

By definition, a Christian that does not accept all Catholic doctrines is a heretic; therefore, Catholics for Choice should call themselves Heretics for Choice. Actually, as I said on October 21, 2005, the Greek word for choice is αιρεσις (hairesis), form which we get the word heresy, so what they should really call themselves is Heretics for Heresy.
