Series of good posts
by Chris Burgwald on anti-Catholicism.

The one thing that really leaves me scratching my head: the title of Mr. Swift's blog..."Vessel of Honour " ! Doesn't he realize that title simply reeks of "Mariolatry" ? I'll be praying the true "Vessel of Honour" brings him to conversion- or at least a bit of sanity- through her powerful intercession.

BTW, my beloved Venerable wrote a classic on the subject of anti-Catholicism- Lectures on the Present Position of Catholics in England . It is a trifle dated in its examples, but is intensely wise in its principles- as well as being hilariously funny in parts. ( If you read no other section, at least check out this parody of the anti-Catholic rallies common in the England of Venerable Newman's day.)
