The Seven Big Myths About the Catholic Church

Distinguishing Fact from Fiction about Catholicism

By Kaczor, Christpher (Author)
$18.95 AUD

The Roman Catholic Church has long been the target of suspicion and hostility. But how much of this is based on ignorance and prejudice and how much is the fruit of thoughtful consideration of the facts?

This book separates fact from fiction. Without excusing or justifying wrongdoing, author Christopher Kaczor clarifies official Catholic teaching and demonstrates that much popular opinion about Catholicism is based on misunderstanding and misinformation. He also provides robust and lucid arguments for Catholic belief and practice.

No one book can answer everyone's questions or objections about Catholicism, but this work examines seven of the most controversial and most common myths about the Catholic Church.

The Seven Myths:

The Church Opposes Science: The Myth of Catholic Irrationality

The Church Opposes Freedom and Happiness: The Myth of Catholic Indifference to Earthly Welfare

The Church Hates Women: The Myth of Catholic Misogyny

Indifferent to Love, the Church Banned Contraception: The Myth of Opposition between Love and Procreation

The Church Hates Gays: The Myth of Catholic "Homophobia"

The Church Opposes Same-Sex Marriage Because of Bigotry: The Myth That There Is No Rational Basis for Limiting Marriage to One Man and One Woman

Priestly Celibacy Caused the Crisis of Sexual Abuse of Minors: The Myth of Priestly Pedophilia

Christopher Kaczor, Ph.D., is a professor of philosophy at Loyola Marymount University and the author of The Ethics of Abortion: Women's Rights, Human Life, and the Question of Justice; Thomas Aquinas on the Cardinal Virtues; Life Issues - Medical Choices; and How to Stay Catholic in College.

"Kudos to Christopher Kaczor for a book that should be read not only by any Christian from the age of reason on up, but also and especially by the Critics of Perpetual Indignance. Intellectually relentless yet engagingly sincere, The Seven Big Myths About the Church is a rhetorical demolition derby of some of the most cherished -- and toxic -- lies of our time."
- Mary Eberstadt, Author, Adam and Eve After the Pill
