Christ is Risen!
Hey all - I have a question regarding the RCC that came up last night in a discussion I was having with my good friend who is RC. He went to Jesuit elementary, middle and high school, and he said that all throughout his schooling his teachers taught him that the RCC teaches that, if the Roman Catholic Church says something that goes against one's own conscience, ultimately it is okay to believe according to your conscience. This seemed shocking to me (since I am coming from an RCC background and never heard of such a thing), and when I asked where he learned this, he said in school, and that it is probably in the catechism or something. Has anybody heard anything about this? And nothing like this expressly exists in the Orthodox Church, right? I have never heard of the placement of the *individual's* conscience over the Church's, in either Church.
