"There are not more than 100 people in the world who truly hate the Catholic Church," Venerable Archbishops Fulton J. Sheen said, "but there are millions who hate what they perceive to be the Catholic Church."

Misconceptions, inaccurate perceptions and - yes - myths have colored opinions of the Church literally since Jesus walked among us. In THE SEVEN BIG MYTHS ABOUT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, Kaczor distinguishes fact from fiction regarding what the Church actually does believe ... and teach. He discusses:

The Myth of Catholic Irrationality
The Myth of Catholic Indifference to Earthly Welfare
The Myth of Catholic Misogyny
The Myth of Opposition between Love and Procreation
The Myth of Catholic "Homophobia" and Inaction against HIV/AIDS
The Myth that there is No Rational Basis for Limiting Marriage to One Man and One Woman
The Myth of Priestly Pedophilia


Dr. Christopher Kaczor is Professor of Philosophy at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. His other books include The Ethics of Abortion: Women's Rights, Human Life, and the Question of Justice; O Rare Ralph McInerny: Stories and Reflections on a Legendary Notre Dame Professor; Thomas Aquinas on the Cardinal Virtues; Life Issues-Medical Choices; Thomas Aquinas on Faith, Hope, and Love; The Edge of Life: Human Dignity and Contemporary Bioethics; Proportionalism and the Natural Law Tradition; and How to Stay Catholic in College. Kaczor's research on issues of ethics, philosophy, and religion has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, the Huffington Post, National Review, NPR, BBC, EWTN, ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, MSNBC, and NBC's "The Today Show."
