One prevarication makes whole book suspect
No stars. One of the theories Mr. Vidal advances is that the former head of the FBI (Freeh), Scalia's son who allegedly converted Clarence Thomas to the Catholic Faith, and Pope John Paul II who will canonize the Spanish Priest and founder of Opus Dei, Blessed Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer are all in a secret society, Opus Dei, which is a right wing conspiracy dangerous to the US. (That two Catholics are on the Supreme Court, he says gives weight to his theory). Opus Dei ('The Work of God') is not a secret and is simply about doing your life's work, whatever it may be, for God... Everyone is called to be holy, laborers, office workers, parents, children, doctors, lawyers, canledstick-makers, even authors. Being holy includes not lying, slandering, libeling. Truly holiness in every day situations is a simple concept, but very difficult to do, of course, without prayer, meditation on scriptures, sacrifice, and more prayer. Since Mr. Vidal has reported on this worldwide spiritual movement so erroneously (and so easily checked out), the only conspiracy I see, is in the devil's work of those that enjoy bashing the Catholic Church. Therefore, could there be any truth in any part of the book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
