The Catholic Church and its teachings and views on specific subjects.

Catholicism encompasses all churches who hold to the Pope (in Rome) as being the earthly head of the church, along with the attendant structure, mores, values, and teachings thereof. This is mainly the church commonly called the Roman Catholic church, but also a number of much smaller Eastern Rite Catholic Churches.

Further information can be found at the helpful Wikipedia article.

Use this tag for all questions about the organization of the Catholic church, its structures and practices and teachings specific to it, and about any other churches that fall within this definition.
