The authors reflect on the violence by commission and omission made by the Catholic Church and the role of the Association for the Rights of Catholics in the Church (ARCC) in preventing them. ARCC was founded in response to the punishment of Father Hans Kung for questioning a Church teaching. Father Donald Cozzen said that Catholics should fight the Church's secrecy, misuse of power and authority, sexual discrimination, threats and punishments. One of non-violent response of Catholics to the violence was withdrawal of their Sunday contributions.
