October 15th, 2010 | Catalyst Online, Features

Since Pope Benedict XVI announced that he would visit the United Kingdom in September, his critics have gone ballistic. The following is a sample of some of the commentary leading up to his visit.

DISSIDENT CATHOLICS
October 7th, 2010 | Chatterbox...

A stunning example of the way dissident Catholics think was recently brought to our attention.
