The Catholic Church has an open door policy, or more accurately, it has an open the door policy.
The caption under the three doors says,
Open the door that best describes you.
The first door is for those who are “Not Catholic”:
If you’re a Protestant, Evangelical or of another faith tradition; the I’m Not Catholic door has information pertaining to you. Or maybe you consider yourself an atheist, agnostic, or not really religious, then the I’m Not Catholic door has information pertaining to you too. Inside you will find resources that will help you understand what we believe as Catholics. Non-Catholics who have explored our site are often surprised to find out that there is much more to Catholicism than they ever realized. Check it out. You have nothing to lose. We’re glad you’re here.
The audacity of the Catholic Church has no boundaries. Imagine thinking of the Catholic Church as “home”! Atheists, agnostics, and those who are not really religious know and understand what Catholics believe, and they want no part of those beliefs. They do realize that there is more to Catholicism; they realize that the RCC is a money grabbing institution, intent on covering up its criminal and inhumane activities. The present pope, Joseph Ratzinger, is a vicious man intent on keeping and spreading the Catholic Church’s nefarious power. The Catholic Church would be “
glad” ecstatic if an atheist or an agnostics opened the “Not Catholic” door. It would add to the the Church’s numbers, the legion of Catholics who cherry-pick what they want to believe and ignore the rules they do not want to follow.
Catholics Come Home.org is an expensive campaign designed to coerce Canadians and Americans to swear allegiance to the Catholic Church. It would be perilous to open any of the “Come Home” doors; the pope lurks behind each of them.
