I don’t know what anti-Catholic literature is either.
In the world of mormonism, mormons will call anything anti-mormon that doesn’t fall under what they have been taught. Including information that is factual, has been taught previously, and in some cases was taught by lds prophets and apostles.
For example, I left mormonism some 20 years ago, and what is in my head as what I was taught as what being a mormon meant, is now considered by the younger mormon set to be anti-mormon. So, am I anti-mormon just by the fact that at one time I actually believed what I had been taught?
I don’t think that knowing what mormons have believed is anti-mormon. It is useful information to have when considering whether or not that particular religion is something that a person would wants to be a part of.
Ed Decker, as inflammable as he is, has the same thing going on. These are the things he was taught, so therefore, believing them at one time and making a film about what he believed once…this makes him an anti-mormon?
For someone who is just learning about Roman Catholicism, I don’t see the same problem that the mormons have. I can read until I can’t stand reading any longer a lot of history about a very old religion. But no Catholic is denying the more difficult bits or calling it anti-Catholic.
As for the example of the Eucharist and cannibalism, that is exactly what I thought the first time I looked up the word transubstantiation. It wasn’t an anti-Catholic thought, not even a criticism. Just, from someone who was not familiar with the belief it does in fact look like ritualistic cannibalism. Especially when I have read about what it is cannibals believe is happening when they eat another human…aka, they are taking on their stronger attributes, and more to the point, taking on that person’s “power”. It took a lot more reading and attending Mass for a long time to really get what was going on with the Eucharist. And no, I don’t see the Eucharist as cannibalism any longer, but the ritualistic comparison is still very striking to me.
