Product Description

The culture of contempt—the desire to injure perceived opponents who are considered not as wrong but as evil—has spread everywhere. People are increasingly unable to understand, let alone debate with, their ideological opponents, thanks to the emergence of "cheap speech" in the media, seismic upheavals in digital technology, and a boom business built on selling indignation.

The Catholic Church sees itself as a cultural evangelizer, but this culture of scorn has evangelized much of the Church. A disturbing number of Catholic media platforms and commentators have instilled contempt in the core of Catholic life.

John L. Allen Jr., a Vatican journalist and Crux Editor, delivers a piercing examination of our broken Catholic media environment in this urgent and important new book. Allen examines six case studies of the culture of contempt that is harming the Church—four from across the world and two from the United States—and offers not only an upsetting look at the route Catholic media has taken, but also an urgent appeal to change course.
