Product Overview

The Church''s History of Injustices and Why This Priest Left grew out of the Church''s role in the civil rights movement of the 1960''s and outlines the Church''s role in civil rights from the New Testament through the present time. John Sheehy focuses on the Catholic Church, but includes all Christian denominations, exposing not only the Church''s lack of interest in the basic rights of people, but it''s role as perpetuator of social injustice. Sheehy, a former priest, examines the Church''s actions, finding prejudice against Jews, marriage, women, homosexuals, and others. Sheehy also examines such prominent events as the Inquisition, the Crusades, and heresy, gradually becoming distraught at the actions of the Church he served. His study brings forth a conclusion that the church is outmoded and no longer functional in any area of social justice and this caused him to decide that he could no longer serve under its auspices.
