Cancel the Catholic Revolution: New Book Takes on the New Breed of Liberal Catholic Influencers Trying to Change the Church

Catholic Answers
April 17, 2024

SAN DIEGO, April 17, 2024 /Christian Newswire/ -- The "mess" in the Catholic Church has reached an unsustainable degree, says a leading Catholic apologist and author. In a new book from Catholic Answers Press, he details the heated intra-Church conflicts over issues of faith, morals, and prudence, and takes to task "progressive" Catholic groups and figures for stoking the flames.

In Confusion in the Kingdom, Trent Horn (Why We're Catholic, the Counsel of Trent podcast) presents a Body of Christ riddled with fractures: in areas related to sex, life, and the family; over the way the Church teaches, evangelizes, and works for a just society; and even regarding the certainty and durability of Catholic teaching itself. And the strain is starting to show. To a new and extreme degree, people both inside and outside the Church are less certain than ever of what Catholicism proposes and what it rejects; what it blesses and what it condemns.

Although factions from every wing of the Church can (and do) contribute to such disunity, Horn singles out for special criticism those representing the views of liberal Catholicism. These individuals and institutions, in the line of dissenting agitators from the twentieth century, have lately become bolder in their efforts, perhaps seeing in recent Church trends an opportunity to win permanent victories for their novel and worldly vision of the Faith.

"Where Catholicism was once a rock of faith, increasingly people see it as shifting sands," says Todd Aglialoro, director of publishing for Catholic Answers Press. "Trent Horn does a service to believers and nonbelievers alike by exposing—and refuting—those who promote such confusion by substituting liberal ideologies for perennial Catholic truth."
