Two years ago (I can’t believe it’s been that long!), I argued that honest and decent human beings have a moral responsibility to openly oppose Pope Benedict XVI.

Adam Lee has now taken my argument one step further, outlining 50 reasons why people should boycott not just Pope Benedict XVI, but the entire Catholic Church.

… whatever individual Catholics may do, the resources of the church as an institution are bent toward opposing social progress and positive change all over the world. Every dollar you put into the church collection plate, every Sunday service you attend, every hour of time and effort you put into volunteering or working for church organizations, is inevitably a show of support for the institutional church and its abhorrent mission. When you have no voice, there’s only one thing left to do: boycott. Stop supporting the church with your money and your time. For lifelong Catholics, it’s a drastic step, but it’s more than justified by the wealth of reasons showing that the church as an institution is beyond reform, and the only meaningful response is to part ways with it. 

Take a look at Lee’s 50 reasons here.
