The Agents of Anti-Catholicism

Undoubtedly, anti-Catholicism is the last acceptable prejudice. A book under the same title goes into greater detail (click here to view book details). In October 2009 alone, Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York points out in an article that the New York times, in a mere span of 17 days poured layer upon layer of their prejudice against Catholicism with publication of stories bent on painting Catholicism in a bad light. Where media outlets acquire such behavior is baffling. Perhaps they've caught it from their institutional leanings early in their University level indoctrinations; or perhaps from individual reporters selling themselves out to an ideology that must disfavor Catholicism to advance their careers. Regardless of the origins, anti-Catholicism is not only transparently bias, but increasingly tiresome. It seems that some people satisfy their personal odds-with-life by setting their sights on a scapegoat that they believe will just take it lying down - in today's world it is the Catholic Church.

Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for my sake (Matt 5:11)

Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also. (John 15:20)
