Recently I had a conversation with a good Protestant friend of mine, and one of his main objections to Catholicism was that the Catholic Church had “changed and distorted history” throughout the centuries.
He went on to say that since the Catholic monks were the only ones who could read/write and record the facts of the world, they distorted everything to a pro-Catholic stance. Thus all of the western world’s history is completely biased, etc, etc.
I have my own ideas of what to reply back, but before I did, I wanted to hear what anyone else had to say about the matter. So… what do you guys have to say about all of this? Thanks!
