The Pope

Roman Catholic Church doctrine, proclaimed by Pope Paul VI in 1968, forbade contraceptives. HIV infections skyrocketed in the 1980s and 1990s, killing millions. When Pope John Paul II visited Uganda in 1993, he chose to accept the epidemic rather than change the Vatican's moral doctrine; the death toll is sickening.

Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI) continues to speak out against condom usage, even though study (2012), after study (2011), after study (2010), after study (2009), after study (2008), after study (2007), after study (1997), after study (1994), after study (1993) concludes that condom use can significantly reduce HIV transmission. The Pope's stance has resulted in deaths of holocaust proportions; the stance is a crime against humanity.

This alone is reason enough to abolish the Catholic Church, but there's more. In 2001, Cardinal Ratzinger obstructed justice by reminding bishops of Crimen Sollicitationis. This act sheltered pedophiles, silenced victims by secrecy, and bypassed police authorities by asserting the Church's right to private inquiries. Evasion of civil criminal prosecution continued into 2011.

Ratzinger also wrote that “the Church must make claims and demands on public law,” chipping the wall of separation between Church and State. A wall Thomas Jefferson established in writing “religion is a matter which lies solely between Man and his God.”
