Are you a non-Catholic, a full Catholic, or a "cafeteria Catholic"? [View all]

clarification: by "Catholic" here I mean "Roman Catholic".

A "full Catholic" would agree with the Catholic church on every single issue. That is, all abortion is a sin, no contraception allowed except for the rhythm method, missing Mass is a serious sin, etc.
