How about a link to the poll that you mentioned at the end of a podcast.

btw I love your show so much that I almost wish that I lived in Washington.

re: Mike’s question about how Catholics feel about supporting child abuse with their funds

Perhaps they feel there is no choice. For example, I am a conservation activist, but live in Japan. The government redirects some of my tax money, including some that was supposed to be for tsunami reconstruction, to their horrific whaling fleet, which is a money-loser and requires government money to literally stay afloat. Why do I pay tax? Should I move? Well, I live here, and wherever else I move to, they’ll probably fund something I hate. If I stay and just don’t pay my tax, I can be fined, jailed, or deported. Do the Catholics feel the same way? Do they think they’ll be in “soul jail” if they don’t continue to fund this enterprise? Would splitting off and forming a new group be punishable by eternal torture?
