Anti-Catholic Media history

Here’s a great article on anti-Catholicism here in the U.S.

Thanks for the article - that was a great read! I couldn’t agree with Weigel more: I find Maureen Dowd to be a rather despicable person when it comes to Catholicism. The preoccupation that the world has with all of these myths is, in my opinion, attributable in large part to the works of people such as W.C. Benson and Dowd - who are themselves victims of myths and prejudices. It just makes me think of that quote by Archbishop Sheen: “There are not over a hundred people in the United States who hate the Catholic Church. There are millions, however, who hate what they wrongly believe to be the Catholic Church, which is, of course, quite a different thing.”

It rings so true.
