Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Is it time to re-instate the Index for the good of souls?

August 18th, 2017, Promulgated by Diane Harris

Liberalism is a Sin begs the question of whether or not some type of Index is needed. With the distorted secular education being force-fed, the loss of faith-based schooling, and the accelerating increase in information (true or fake) and associated technology, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish the reliable from that which is not. A publication from 1899 provides some fodder for the discussion.



Consider, for example, Chapter 29 of Liberalism is a Sin entitled “Liberalism and Journalism,” vis à vis  Real and Fake News. Just a point for further discussion. Burning at the stake (author or book) not necessarily required or implied.

(While the Index of Prohibited Books was the exact list of books forbidden for Catholics to read, a more modern version might simply be the availability of such a list and the reasons for something to be included. Sort of a “not recommended” list and why.)

    Thanks for posting this, Diane. I bought the kindle ebook for $0.99 – interesting read thus far.
