Long story short, I visited The Vatican in 2009 and will be returning to Europe in a few months time. I also have very big problems with lots of what the Catholic Church has done throughout history.
I’m having trouble getting over the fact that I would be directly giving the Catholic Church money by entering The Vatican. I know it seems petty and wanky, but I kind of can’t get past being on a high horse regarding this.
The thing is though, I thoroughly loved visiting The Vatican in 09 and would LOVE to see it all again.
My main objection to Church is all the sex abuse stuff, the cover-ups, the actions of Ratzinger etc.
I guess what I’m looking for is maybe an analogy or reference to something which shows that my “boycott” of the Catholic Church is ridiculous, silly, hypocritical or just not really relevant considering what things are like today in everyday life.
Does that make sense?
Can anyone offer any words of wisdom?
