A Register editorial:

The truth is certainly planting seeds in unsuspecting minds**, making them concede that perhaps not EVERYTHING about the Catholic Church is ridiculous.

    I was delighted to read in the linked article that “In fact, the app is so good that one story reported that Protestant pastors and even non-Christians were recommending “confession.” ”
