The Catholic Church spends a great deal of effort and money trying to impose their views about abortion and birth control on the rest of society. It is hardly a mere "particular" -- it is easily identifiable as part of their own perceived mission. Of course Church members should be able to disagree, but we're not talking about a question of Biblical interpretation or something here, we're talking about mandating core human behavior. And a majority of women who call themselves Catholic know
it's an ignorant rule, and so they choose not to follow it. Yet they still support and protect the organization which is attempting to force onto society the very same rules they themselves flaunt. That's insane!
Huck, do you give money to any charities who spend that money on a cause you completely disagree with? Are you a member of any organization that actively seeks to force other people to live according to rules you yourself think are wrong?
