Format: Hardcover
Historian Arthur Schlesinger once described anti-Catholicism as the last acceptable prejudice in America. This book shows he was right.
Consider some of the evidence presented by a Center for Media and Public Affairs report.
- More than 90 percent of TV news reports were critical of the Church.
- Nine out of ten media sources criticized the Church's ecumenical efforts.
- Church teachings and practices received less support now than in any previous decade.
This insightful books examines the evidence. Not surprisingly it finds a media which uses negative generalizations, invented history, vicious stereotypes, shared prejudices, and outright denigration of Catholic religious beliefs.
This excellent resource includes a comprehensive analysis of media coverage of the Catholic Church from 1963 to 1998. It includes contributions from former Our Sunday Visitor president Robert P. Lockwood, Catholic writer Lou Baldwin, associate director of communications for he New York State Catholic Conference Rick Hinshaw, veteran Washington correspondent Russell Shaw, and Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights president William Donohue.
The book also features a practical chapter outlining 12 ways individuals can improve their relationships wit the secular media.
This book should be required reading among the politically correct, anti-prejudice and diversity training fare taught on our nation's college campuses.

Format: Hardcover
"Anti-Catholicism in American Culture" Is a well written and comprehensive history of anticatholicism in America. Anticatholicism in America is as old as America itself. It arrived on the shores of America with the pilgrims who brought with them Anti-catholic feelings stirred up by the British royalty after Henry the VIII'S break with rome and the gunpowder plot in the late 16th and early 17th century. As detailed in the book Anti catholic bigotry has evolved over the years from one of True doctrinal difference and political differece's to a bigotry based on rejecting anything upholding moral standards and a belife in a christian God. A large part of this book deals with bigotry in the media, and contains a chapter by William Donahue on how to deal with and respond to antiCatholicism in the media. William Donohue is a course one of the most effective in this area and his work alone in this book is worth the price of the book.

I ordered this book form Amazon a few weeks ago and loved it. It is well-organized and tells you a lot of information about a dark side of American history: Anti-Catholicism. It tells you about the prejudices and misinformation used by those who attack the Church. I recommend this book to every Catholic and those who are interested in learning about anti-Catholicism.
