Book Description

The Catholic Church is at a major crossroads in its history. It is in trouble and it will take exceptional leadership and moral integrity on the part of Pope Francis to repair it. The last two Popes, while popular with the public, made matters worse. This 60-page book identifies twelve areas where they failed to act and sets out the actions needed to put them right. They colluded with the criminal activities of the Vatican bank (chapter 1), continued the cover-up of the sexual crimes of priests (chapter 2), continued their widely ignored policy of forbidding contraception (chapter 3), failed to address the ludicrous position of forbidding homosexuality when the priesthood itself is largely homosexual (chapter 4), evaded the issue of anti-Semitism (chapter 5), continued the endemic failure to admit mistakes (chapter 6), reconfirmed the Church’s implicit policy of denigrating women (Chapter 7), equivocated on the embarrassing Church policy of claiming exclusive access to heaven (Chapter 8), ignored the slavery in the Irish Magdalene homes (chapter 9), continued the dubious practice of making politically inspired saints (chapter 10), failed to repudiate the Inquisition (Chapter 11), and continued to confirm the illogical concept of apostolic succession (Chapter 12). The challenge for Pope Francis is thus an enormous one, but he has little choice but to begin the remedies indicated here.

1.0 out of 5 stars Drivel March 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Anti-Catholic screed masquerading as thoughtful insight. Written by another apostle of the vile Lorraine Boettner. Save your money. Steer clear of this rubbish.

1.0 out of 5 stars Typical anti-Catholic drivel March 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The usual knee jerk reaction from a secular liberal. Basically if only the Catholic Church would be less...Catholic. That is his solution. Instead what Catholicism needs is more fidelity not less. We are not Protestants and have no plans to be. The author should be ashamed of his ignorance, bias, and prejudice. But anti-Catholic bigotry is big business. Don't feed the hate and don't buy this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rushed out hate and lies from an enemy of the Church March 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Pope Francis has not been Pope for 24 hours and here is the latest rush job of anti-Catholic nonsense from an enemy of the Church. Why would anyone want to hear what a non-catholic has to say about the Church's "problems"? Are there any calls for Jews or Muslims to change their beliefs? No. Of course not.

This "author" falsely claims the Church claims "exclusive access to Heaven." Show me where that is taught? This intentionally ignorant "author" is creating strawmen just so he has a way to fill the pages of his non-publishable digital-only manifesto.

And someone claiming the Church denigrates women by not supporting their murder in the womb or pumping their body full of chemicals like the birth control group 1 carcinogen, is laughable.

Haters gonna hate. Stick to Jesus, friends. The gates of hell shall not prevail against HIS church.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hate Speech in a Book Format January 15, 2014
By Jeff
Format:Kindle Edition
No more than an anti-Catholic polemic.

If a book like this was written about a minority or a non-Christian religion (e.g. Muslim, Jews, etc.), then the secular left would be demanding that the printing presses immediately stop, all copies seized and burned and the author "re-educated."

5.0 out of 5 stars Dictators of the Faith May 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Many of the 12 problems of the Church as laid out by Sadtler were known to me from history and reading the newspapers, but it was striking to see this crisp listing and concise analysis in just a few summary pages. Catholic or not, it must be disturbing to a reader. I would imagine that it would be difficult for anyone to argue cogently against many of the 23 action steps specified at the end. As Sadtler says, these admissions and changes are necessary "if the organisation is to survive and perform the good works for which it exists".

1.0 out of 5 stars More Modernism May 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is coming out of the modernist perspective and argues that the church's problems can only be solved by fully embracing Protestantism. It's more of the same liberal "spirit of Vatican II" hogwash which has nearly destroyed the Church already. The only thing that will save the Church is a return to the traditions and values, including priestly formation and catechesis, that have kept the Church going strong for nearly 2000 years.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great anti-Catholic reading! July 2, 2013
By Alfredo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Slightly informative, although a lot of the reform recommendations show gross lack of understanding of the soul of the Catholic Church, which is only natural for an outsider looking in. I would NOT recommend this book to anyone.

1.0 out of 5 stars I don't even have to read this "book" March 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
To know that it is typical anti-Catholic, "progressive" ramblings of a man who seeks to deceit and mislead.

Reading the description alone it is clear this man has no understanding of the faith for which he feels compelled to list the steps for our next Pope to "solve".
