11. The favorite "get out of jail free" card the Catholics love to play in these circumstances...

...is "Scripture and Tradition!". "OMG, the Magisterium!". The Magisterium being a relatvely ill-defined entity that mostly means whatever they themselves want it to mean, particularly when arguing an especially thorny topic which they want to appear oversimplified. This is a big part of what led to the defection of Luther, the Reformation, and the sola scriptura doctrine of most Protestant denominations.

As an aside, a lot of scholars think that modern capitalism and individualism would probably never have developed--or would look very different--if the Reformation had not occurred.
