Former lutheran and now Catholic liberal Bill Cork castigates converts for denying "justification by faith alone"

The council of Trent decided for all time that sola fide is a heresy. But there is an easier way for people to understand the Catholic teaching on justification. All you have to do is look at our practices. We have this thing called the sacrament of confession. We must avail ourselves of this sacrament if we commit mortal sin. If we don't, and die in that state, we go to Hell. Obviously the lutherans don't do the same because they don't believe the same . This is a fact not withstanding any "joint declaration" statements to the contrary.

Dave makes a comment I want to address

...The church's teaching on some issues has changed over the years (for instance Slavery for just starters)....

If the Church's teaching can actually change on even one issue, then it is not an infallible church. How do you know then that some future pope won't change the teaching against artificial contraception? Or women priests? Or any of a multitude of issues that are controversial in the Church today? If you believe the Church can change her teachings, why would you criticize liberal catholics like the call to action crowd for demanding more changes?

I wonder if the war in Iraq is really about protecting these awful settlers
