"New" lies about the Catholic Church


#1

Are there any “new” ones or has it all been said before? What’s the craziest one you have ever heard?

One of the craziest falsehoods I ever heard was that the reason we are called “Catholics” is because we sit during the Mass, while the Eastern churches stand. This person said the word “Catholic” was derived from “cathedra” (meaning the seat).
