Courageous and Insightful Jan 19, 2004
Joanna Manning provides a powerful and insightful look into the Vatican and the religious right. She makes a provocative and compelling case for reform in the Catholic Church. Conservative Catholics will hate this book,and her.
Bias by any other name Oct 17, 2002
This is yet another anti-Catholic tirade written by someone who pretends to be a Catholic but who has long since abandoned any belief in the treachings of the Catholic Church on faith and morals. Catholics for a Free Choice will be delighted.
