I'd like to now address some specific Catholic bashing I am dealing with in my life now. A dear friend of mine who was raised Catholic but has left the Church has said the following: 1) That our current Pope was once a Nazi, and 2) That he continues to protect pedophile priests. He says this stuff is common knowledge, and he heard it from sources such as CNN. Now, I would like to find the truth. I know CNN will say one thing, Catholic outlets such as EWTN another, and somewhere in there is the truth. Folks I'd like all the info, even if it hurts. Could one of you give me the skinny?
