    This book opened my eyes to an entirely new world of opinions. I had no idea that some people feel that Vatican II was a bad thing. I cannot say I 'enjoyed' this book. We read it in a men's group at our Catholic parish. While it was only 12 chapters, there were only a few men left by the end of the book. Zmirak was able to chase them all away!! Not for the weak in faith. Provides some tough views of a Church I love.

    This book is wonderfully informative. Mr. Zmirak coherently explains things in a way I wish I could. I confess that I enjoyed the bit of sarcasm he uses when his patience has worn thin. This was a most satisfying read.

    Insightful and often very funny, though somewhat marred by a general "conservative political blogger" vibe. Catholic orthodoxy --- also called "conservative" Catholicism, hilariously, as if following the laws of mathematics makes you a "conservative" mathematician --- really has very little to do with American cultural/political conservatism, though certainly there's some overlap. Zmirak, however, apparently can't always tell the difference; his random diatribes against Syrian immigrants and Margaret Sanger (an elaborate straw man argument that actually undercuts his valid critique of the organization she founded) have nothing to do with the faith as taught by the Magisterium. It's telling that the text is cobbled together from random blog posts that Zmirak has written over the past few years in conservative outlets ... this is why the chapters are a bit disjointed (and constantly refer to news items circa 2013-2016), and also why it feels like you're reading a snarky, erudite Internet comment thread rather than a real book.
