Welcome, friend.
        Are you ready for a totally unique internet experience?  Here, you are going to be able to explore ideas that you will find interesting, enlightening and sometimes maybe even inspiring, without ever being assaulted with distractions by way of either donation requests, or of extraneous and most often irrelevant commercials!
        I have only been able to make this possible, from the day I published my first website in 1996 to this day, by paying the full freight of my WWW mission out of my own pocket, rather than expecting my guests to pay those costs through their donations, or third-party business interests to pay them, through the pasting of their commercials all over my web-pages.

The Roman Catholic Church
as portrayed by Hollywood

It's hard to imagine how the Roman Catholic Church could be portrayed any more favorably than it has so far by America's motion picture industry. Since most Catholics have spent far more time watching movies than they have spent educating themselves using sources other than their own church, it is no wonder that they have so reluctant to accept the fact that their church isn't anywhere near the heavenly institution that they have been lead to believe that it is.
