So the teachers are, "working as intended".
If you have a problem with a catholic teacher then you have a problem with the entire religion.
Which is fine with me

Next thing ya know a pope will say that evolution is correct, when does the madness stop?
Raptor Jesus is a woman??
I think this bible verse proves otherwise:
“He went extinct for your sins to save you from Satanasaurus Rex”

I'm pretty sure the late Pope John Paul even once made a statement that the Genesis creation narrative isn't necessarily a true story.

If there weren't separate beliefs between Catholicism, Baptism, Lutheranism, etc., then there wouldn't be different sects.
You're calling yourself a Catholic. What is it that makes you a Catholic and not a Baptist or a Methodist? Because you were raised Catholic? If your beliefs aren't those of Catholics, then you aren't a Catholic. Easy-peasy.
What I'm saying is you can believe in God any way you want to, but labeling yourself as a Catholic instead of a generic Christian would imply you believe Bible stories were literal, as Catholics do.
