What is a CINO?

Q: What is a CINO?

A: CINO means Catholic In Name Only. Alternative meaning: Christian In Name Only. See above photo for examples. 

I will confine my explanation to Catholics, alone.

Real Catholics manifest their close, personal relationship with God by accepting all the authentic teachings of the Catholic Church, by the charitable service they typically and freely render to to their neighbors, in the name of Jesus Christ, and through their consistent and faithful participation in all of the work, worship, sacraments and devotions of the Catholic Church.

Real Catholics also typically engage in frequent prayer, while maintaining an ongoing regimen of Catholic studies, in order to keep the conscience fully informed.  

If  a real Catholic suspects he might have offended God or man, he promptly makes a good faith effort to mend his ways, and through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, gratefully receives God’s forgiveness and grace.

Real Catholics also take God at his Word, as it has been authoritatively and clearly explained through his one, holy,  Catholic, and apostolic Church, according to the will of God the Father, the promises of Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit.  

CINO’s remain affiliated with the Church primarily for the personal and political benefits that go along with their membership. To A CINO, the Church is little more than a semi-private club.  

In order to justify their positions, CINO’s tend to rely on the flawed opinions of those who only appear to have moral authority, since any other course of action would require a modicum of personal disicpline and at least some allegiance to authentic Catholic Church teachings. 

CINO’s rely on their own malformed consciences to provide the necessary rationalization for whatever types of  lusts, perversions, and other abominations they might personally prefer. As a result, CINO’s typically claim to never sin … at least in a serious way … and hence … see no need for Confession or similar types of things.

CINO’s believe that “the Spirit of the 2nd Vatican Council”  pretty much did away with the need for priests and church hierarchy, dogmas and defined truths, sacraments and/or formal worship.

With CINO’s, conscience … not Christ … is King … and so long as a CINO manages to keep his conscience “in the dark” … just about anything is permissible … especially since CINO’s typically believe that the prospect of Judgment Day is only a cruel hoax … and that God … if he truly exists … is really just a big “cream puff” … who will tolerate just about anything.
