The Wrong Approach

A Truly Catholic History of North America by Carl E. Olson

Recognizing the foundational Catholic roots of North American history, says historian Dr. Kevin Starr, author of Continental Ambitions, helps put away faulty narratives and negative stereotypes.

The author of Continental Ambitions: Roman Catholics in North America: The Colonial Experience probably identifies himself as a California; most American Catholics need to recognize that they are descendants of immigrants and act accordingly, but assimilating the local Anglo-American culture and protecting that culture and identity, instead of using their religion and Catholic Social Teaching to impose liberalism on their neighbors.
