"The New Anti-Catholicism: The Last Acceptable Prejudice"
« on: June 12, 2003, 11:08:34 PM »
Hello all,

I expect that many here will find this noteworthy. Here's a link to information about Philip Jenkins' latest book: The New Anti-Catholicism: The Last Acceptable Prejudice.

I'm about halfway through the book and so far find nearly all of Professor Jenkins' arguments I've encountered within well made. I think that Orthodox can relate quite sympathetically to the treatment dished out to Catholics.  Professor Jenkins harps on the resurrection of elements of the anti-Catholicism of the Know-Nothings and the Ku Klux Klan in support of "Liberal" causes.

Peace,
Irenaeus

Looks good.

Have you read Karl Keating's Catholicism and Fundamentalism: The Attack on "Romanism" by "Bible Christians" (Ignatius Press, 1988)?

It is an excellent book. I recommend it.
The first condition of salvation is to keep the norm of the true faith and in no way to deviate from the established doctrine of the Fathers.

Hi Linus7,

Yes, I read Karl Keating's Catholicism & Fundamentalism: The Attack on "Romanism" by "Bible Christians" very close to when it first appeared in 1988. I was living in San Diego then, and not long after I heard Mr. Keating speak one weekday evening in the Hall of my parish - St. Therese of Lisieux. I even got to meet him and may have offended him mildly by inquiring whether he would address criticisms of Pope Pius XII in any subsequent editions. Anyway, later that night I sent Mr. Keating a letter with a cartoon by Paul Conrad of The Los Angeles Times taking a jab at Pius XII. A few days later I received a polite thank you from Mr. Keating.
