Heretic. It more or less means just that.

Merriam Webster describes it as:

One who dissents from an accepted belief or doctrine.


A maverick, perhaps - An unorthodox or independent-minded person; a person who refuses to conform to the views of a particular group or party; an individualist (OED).
