I took a short cruise through the rest of that site and it was just creepy. Didn't quite know at times whether to laugh or cry, but ended up laughing.


I laugh at the geocentrism.

But the antisemitism is something else.

And the cowboy apologetics just leaves me shaking my head.


When Mark Shea was around he frequently complained about the stuff going on at Catholic Apologetic International. Fr example, they do not believe the earth revolves around the sun... okey doke. They're a little out there.

But I wouldn't go so far as to say apologetics doesn't work. Good apologetics, that is well reasoned, thought out and delivered works great!! That's what brought me back into the church.


Over at the Lidless-Eye blog, they've addressed this site in a pretty funny manner. check the 26 JAN entry

Unapologetic Catholic

Anthony, Thanks for the link and the heads up! The post is pertty funny bu tht earlier ones at the site pretty clearly demonstrate the problem.

Steven Riddle

Dear Unapologetic,

I tend to agree. This site is appalling. And more than the sheer bad taste of the beginning the blatant anti-semitism that permeates the discourse is nauseating.

Apologetics has its place. For those uncertain in their faith, it is a bulwark. For those called to talk to others it is a source of information and formation.

But too often apologists seem to have forgotten the dual command--"Be ye as wise as serpents AND as harmless as doves." They seem to glory in the "wise as serpents part."

However, had it not been for well-formed apologists--C.S. Lewis among them, I might never have found my way to the faith. So it is largely a question of balance and of humility.



Christopher Blosser

We can't discount apologetics as a practice -- or else we'd throw out a host of Catholic Saints and theologians (Aquinas? Justin Martyr?) and contemporary folk like Mark Shea, Scott Hahn, Karl Keating, Catholic Answers, etc.), who certainly are a credit to their profession.

However, we're talking about Robert Sungenis and Catholic Apologetics International, staunch defenders of geocentrism. ;-)

Unapologetic Catholic

I think Steven Riddle and Elena both make good points, and Christopher has a point too--aplogetics has its place, but the key as noted is balance and humility. I often see those qualities lacking.
