Are anti-Catholic Myths the original Fake News? Anti-Catholics like to paint Church teachings in a way that makes them seem vain, backward, or superstitious, hoping to draw people out of the Faith and into sects or unbelief. Catholic apologists fight back with facts and sound arguments. Another area where the Church's enemies tell their own false story of Catholicism- its history. Whether from media, in classrooms, or out of the mouths of pastors and politicians, we've all heard a version of Catholic history filled with unrelenting violence, ignorance, worldliness, and bigotry. It's enough to make many believers question whether the Church truly was founded by Christ! Whether it's claims about Catholicism's supposedly pagan origins, old myths about Galileo or the Inquisition, or more modern misconceptions that anti-Catholics cynically exploit, these attacks require a response from those who know the truth. In The Real Story of Catholic History, Professor Weidenkopf collects over fifty of the most common and dangerous lies about Catholic history and, drawing on his experience as a historian and apologist, shows how to answer them simply and powerfully.
