Not Sure Yet

This is not what I expected. It is a no-holds bar look at the history of the Catholic Church and there is certainly no sugar-coating involved. It is not an easy read and some of the assessments are hard to take, but I am assuming it is accurate. It might have been more balanced with more of the good works the Church has done in America. That is part of its history as well.
