We've come a long way for Catholics. The Pope is on the way, but..

I am sure the folks I knew, as a kid visiting the South, still harbor a quiet but strong belief that Catholics are soldiers of the anti-Christ, have tails and will rise up to take over the world for the Pope.   I guess Catholics were the second "New World Order" group.  The first were the Jews.  Protestants in the U.S. were a nasty lot.  Think not?

America's dark and not-very-distant history of hating Catholics

A few points:

Oh, George H.W. Bush is the progenitor of the third New World Order bugaboo of fear.

Do you still think this nation was founded on religious freedom?

Catholics have been as savage as non-Catholics, just in other times and places.

Religion is just another way of people to gain power, fame and fortune.  It has little to do with theology or metaphysics.
