Collective Apostasy in Argentina



The Argentine Coalition for a Lay State (CAEL) called for this collective apostasy while the Senate of that country voted against the legalization of abortion.


Proabortist made long lines to dissociate from the Catholic Church.
According to the CIA World Factbook (July 2014), 92% of the country are nominally Roman Catholic, but less than 20% practice their faith regularly. 
The Argentine government financially supports the Catholic Church. The first Argentine Constitution, promulgated in 1853 and which remains the basis of Argentina’s modern legal system, reserved a special place for the Catholic Church in the country through state financial support while also allowing religious freedom. (Such as special pensions, subsidies for each student / seminarian, payment of the "salaries" of bishops and priests, As are exemptions from paying taxes, grants a lifelong assignment to bishops emeritus and auxiliaries, etc.)


"De este modo, una ley de ese año firmada por Videla asegura a obispos y arzobispos un salario equivalente al 80% del de un juez federal de primera instancia, mientras que a los Obispo Auxiliares y al Secretario general del Episcopado les corresponde el 70%.[21]​ Como antecedente, una ley de 1977 también signada por Videla, otorga una asignación vitalicia a los obispos eméritos y auxiliares. Una tercera, de 1980, da asignaciones por zona desfavorable. En 1983 una ley obliga al Estado a dar asignaciones a los obispos residentes una suma por cada seminarista de su jurisdicción. Adicionalmente, el clero cuenta con otros privlegios otorgados por leyes tales como jubilaciones graciables (otorgadas sin aportes, 1981) y pasajes gratuitos (1980)"
