Mr. Donahue is an amazing Catholic, he always defending the Church with passion, with facts and his logic always making sense. For example, (and I am paraphrasing) in response to people who are for same sex marriage argue that their "marriage" does not hurt anyone, how is it that he is against it? To which his response was, "well, so is a five year old praying before eating lunch in her class room" it does not hurt anyone, then how is it that the same group fight to forbid that five years old from praying before eating her lunch? If anyone is interested in listening more from Mr. Donohue, he appeared on EWTN, Fox and other media outlets. Search for clips on Youtube.
The author chronicles the ensuing devastation that resulted in a growing 45-year-old assault by nihilists, relativists and liberals out to destroy religion (especially the Catholic Church) and a culture of decency in America.
The author is a scholar who meticulously references his facts. Some of the most astounding things one learns are the extent to which this sabotage against the Catholic Church has been vigorously promoted by some affiliated with the Church (members, nuns, ordained clergy), government officials, demented academics who should know better, lawyers who pervert the law and the Constitution to advance their own sordid agendas, the art community, and Hollywood elites who cannot even fathom that transcendent truths and sexual morality exist.
We learn of the resulting decimation of mainline Protestantism to near irrelevancy due to its eagerness to accommodate itself to modernity's long-term love affair with uncertainty and equivocation. Not surprising, the fastest growing groups of Christians are Evangelicals and those remaining orthodox, weary of decades of absurdities challenging the fundamentals of Christianity that were essentially settled 1,500 years ago. Despite their differences, loyal Catholics, Evangelicals, and fundamentalists have more in common today than ever in their united effort to stop this madness.
This fine book ends on a positive tone, noting that most Catholic dissidents are now senior citizens and younger people of faith don't buy their nonsense. Also, serious Christians have been having children who most likely will derail the secular sabotage. The malcontents now in their twilight years have been too busy fanatically obsessed as adults with trivial pursuits to think about producing the next generations to any significant degree.
No society in history has ever flourished or endured without a commitment to no-nonsense religion. Every person interested in this nation's survival as one of any consequence should read this book, given that the current federal administration essentially embraces all of the self-destructive and insane ideas this book so eloquently decries.
