If a new and different “Catholic Church” is the goal of the Cafeteria/Free Range Catholics may I suggest:

1. They gather together in convention or communion and write a creed.

2. They elect a committee (or hierarchy) to administer the creed.

3. They designate a proper time and meeting place to share their newfound community.

4. That their creed include an admonition that the transgression of others is not a valid reason for their own defection.

5. They no longer malign the 2,000-year-old doctrine of the Christian faith and Mother Church.

6. May perpetual light shine upon them.
