Hi, Dave, it's me, Pito.

I'd like to know whether there are online Catholic responses to Joseph McCabe's anti-Catholic writings, as he appears very challenging to the Church in some respects.

Thanks.

Dave Armstrong said...

I don't know anything about him; never heard of him. The way to find out would be to do a search of his name and "Catholic" and "replies," "responses," etc. That ought to bring up anything that is out there.

Randy said...

I think McCabe is an atheist so you might look at protestant sites as well and find a rebuttal of his stuff.

Dave Armstrong said...

I'd like to do some more interaction with atheist arguments in the near future. I get in the mood for that every couple of years, and occasionally, some excellent dialogues can be had (in-between all the silliness and insults that usually occurs).

Adomnan said...

McCabe, who died in 1955, is not worth bothering with. Hardly anyone would take him seriously nowadays. He was a pro-Stalin kook, as this excerpt from his "Atheist Russia Shakes the World":

"They have been compelled to acknowledge that out of the horrible miseducated Tsarist Russia, further demoralized by six years of war and two of terrible famine and disease, the "Godless Bolsheviks," as the Catholic press still called them only six month's ago, have created the greatest civilization of our time; that the magnificent spirit of the atheistic Russian people is in as stark a contrast as is conceivable to the cowardice, evasiveness, tortuousness, and self-seeking of the Black International that poisoned the world against them."

The "Black International" is the Vatican/Catholic Church.

This ludicrous screed begins with the following observation about the attack on Pearl Harbor:

"On the very morning on which I begin to write this little book the news comes that Japan has attacked America. It completes my case against the Vatican."

Oookay.

I don't think Joseph McCabe is "very challenging to the Catholic Church" in any respect.

Dave Armstrong said...

A real nutcase. Thanks for the info. I don't waste my time on kooks.
