Some Muslim countries sentence to death those who apostatize or refuse to pray. Racist occidental minds may say that only Muslim societies are capable of that.
Let us remind them that the same punishment was applied in Catholic countries not so long ago. In addition to the hundreds of thousands of people burned at the stake or tortured by the Inquisition for alleged sorcery, all apostates were burnt to death as well … and their possessions were confiscated by the Catholic Church.
If the Catholic church was still in power today, such atrocities would probably continue.
Apostatize, in the memory of all those victims, to affirm your freedom … and thinking that if you were living a few hours flight further South you would be sentenced to death!
Apostatize in order to weaken the Catholic church and prevent a comeback in your country where your freedom to apostatize is guaranteed by the Constitution!
The Catholic Church today is mired in scandal, including shady financial dealings, pedophilia, and nuns who have been raped or have had abortions. Clergymen who commit pedophilia are often merely transferred or reprimanded by their superiors, who often cover up the crimes to spare the Church public humiliation and the need to pay large financial damages to the victims.
