- n. a religious orientation opposed to Catholicism
Sorry, no etymologies found.
I disagree with John Hagee's anti-catholicism, but I agree with his pro-Israel stance.
There also happen to be quite a few seemingly Irish nationalist books about anti-catholicism and the history of the working class which has me wondering whether these were written by my great grandad namesake; the drunkard black sheep of the family who hated everyone and ran away from his family a lot.
I can't answer for Maureen Dowd, who appears to be a staunch Irish Catholic to me, but as a daily communicant and Irish Catholic myself, I can attest that my own comments would never bridge any anti-catholicism, be it from outsiders, insiders or even Anglicans.
o, DALE.....you are beyond help or reason -- go burn a cross somwhere in honor of your anti-catholicism!
