YOU HAVE A FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHT TO BE ABLE TO GET OUT OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
 
HOW TO GET OUT
 
Although the process of formal defection from the Catholic Church has been discontinued, Church law still recognises that one can leave the Church and cease to be Roman Catholic. The United Nations Declaration of Human Rights gives you the right to stop being labelled under a religious identity. If you don't feel you are Catholic and do not believe then you are not Catholic anymore.

Ticking Catholic on a census form is telling the government to regard the Church as a possibly important thing.  The more ticks the more importance the Church is given.  Make sure it is your truth that you are indeed Catholic.
 
THE RIGHT TO MY OPINION EXCUSE FOR DISAGREEING
 
Don't tick the box and then argue that if you disagree with the Church you are still Catholic for you have a right to your opinions.  Opinions are what you think is the case but which is open to dispute. To say what somebody knows to be right is just their opinion is a form of undermining them and what they say. Its a tactic used by liberal Christians all the time. Opinions have no binding force. For example, consider this. If it is my opinion that 2 + 2 = 5 and if it is yours that 2 + 2 = 4 then we must agree to disagree. We must permit the disagreement and respect it. How can life function with an outlook like that where one has no firm beliefs and claims to know nothing and worse of all that permits any old rubbish?
 
No true follower of Christianity takes the view, "I've a right to my religious opinions" with regard to the content of Jesus' teaching or the Church's. That is a form of relativism that teaches that we can be sure of nothing are are only left with opinions. The pope continually condemns such relativism. Christianity claims to be a body of revealed truth not a collection of opinions. Those who think its a collection of opinions are saying its just another man-made faith. If they claim to be Christians they are claiming what is false. They are actually agreeing with the atheists and religious sceptics that Christianity is not a monolith of divine truth but of mere human speculation.
 
Relativism is behind the notion that some have that you can embrace the Catholic faith and reject parts of the faith and still be a true believer. This is ridiculous. It is like, "I trust you but....". If one wants to be seen as that sneaky then let one be seen as it.
 
People who have realised they shouldn't be identifying as Catholics on the form must click no religion. There is nothing stopping them from attending Mass. Some people like attending any kind of religious service, Mass, Protestant Service and Hindu Puja for the sense of transcendence. Do you really think the Catholic next door will hate you if you tick the No Religion box and attend Mass occasionally? Why be afraid?
