Consumption (81013-C1-¶163.D)

Amend ¶163.D as follows:
  
  D) Consumption-Consumers should ...
Consumers should evaluate their consumption of goods and services in the light of the need for enhanced quality of life rather than unlimited production of material goods. We call upon consumers, including local congregations and Church-related institutions, to organize to achieve these goals and to express dissatisfaction with harmful economic, social, or ecological practices through such appropriate methods as boycott, letter writing, corporate resolution, and advertisement. For example, these methods can be used to influence better television and radio programming.

Rationale

The sentence does not have anything to do with consumption.
