I have heard that one can petition the RCC to be let off the hook, but I also hear that so many people are sending in the forms that they have stopped accepting them. Anyone know about this, pro/con?

The form to defect from the church was so popular, that in 2010 the church made changes to Canon Law which removed the option to formally defect.

Didn't know that about Poles, but I once told a friend that if you're Irish, Italian, or Latino, you're probably Catholic. If not you were or you have family who are. She didn't believe me, so I turned to my Brooklyn Italian buddy. He was formerly Catholic, too. My father's grandfather was from Ireland.

It's just like I'd take a bet that Marozz has at least two family members named Frances/Francis. Smile

You'd lose your bet. I have friends called Francis. But I see where your coming from. Main reason is because Francis of Assisi wasn't one of my grandmothers favourite saints. Big Grin. Her all time favourite saint was a saint with the name des Porres.... I and a few of my cousins were named after him. If you know your saints then you'll know my first name. Most of my family are named after various saints, the Gospel writers etc.....

I like that they use the word "defect", just like every totalitarian regime on the planet uses when people try and/or do to get out from under. I wonder what I can do to get excommunicated, then? Enough derail, I'll start a thread.
