"The Christianity of history is not Protestantism. If ever there were a safe truth it is this, and Protestantism has ever felt it so; to be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant." (-John Henry Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine).

"Where the bishop is, there let the people gather; just as where ever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church". -St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD)a martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor. Antioch was also where the term "Christian" was first used.

“But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

"This is the sole Church of Christ, which in the Creed we profess to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic." -CCC 811

7 Myths About the Catholic Church



January 5, 2013 (Romereports.com) Late American Bishop, Fulton Sheen once said “There are no more than 100 people in the world who truly hate the Catholic Church, but there are millions who hate what they perceive to be the Catholic Church.”

That quote is actually the introduction of 'The Seven Big Myths About the Catholic Church.' The book authored by Christopher Kaczor deals with modern day misconceptions many people, including Catholics, have about the Church.

These misconceptions include: 'The Church Hates Women,' 'The Church Hates Gays.' Also on the list is 'The Church Opposes Science.' The author explains in detail, how the Church welcomes everyone. In addition, it runs several universities worldwide, with full science departments. The Vatican also has its own observatories in Italy and U.S, not to mention the discoveries of Catholic scientists.

The Seven Big Myths About the Catholic Church
“For instance, Gregor Mendel, who is the founder of modern genetics, Georges Lemaitre, who is the founder of the Big Bang theory or Louis Pasteur, who created the first vaccine for rabies.”

Another is that priestly celibacy caused the sexual abuse of minors. Others listed are 'The Church Oppresses Freedom,' 'The Church, Indifferent to Love, Banned Contraception,' and The Church Opposes Same Sex Marriage Because of Bigotry.'

The author says he wrote the book thinking about his own friends who have left the Church, precisely because of these popular misconceptions. So now thorough his book, he hopes to dispel some of those myths by giving readers some insight into the true reasoning behind the teachings of the Catholic Church.
