The issue of non-violence is very complex, but in the end it revolves around a simple fact: we cannot expect to find our way past capitalist domination through non-violence. That doesn’t mean non-violence can’t inform the path to a revolutionary transformation, a term not the same as the current hype using that word by so-called ‘socialists’.
The Catholic Church’s hypocrisy springs from its current impotence. When it was still a theocratic empire its violence in the CounterReformation to defend that was gross, as was that of the other side.
