    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.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/07771661758539438173 Dave Armstrong

    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.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/16751516602395247675 Randy

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/07771661758539438173 Dave Armstrong

    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).

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/15746373228302022418 Adomnan

    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.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/07771661758539438173 Dave Armstrong

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