That quote is actually the introduction of 'The Seven Big Myths About the Catholic Church.'he book authored by Christopher Kaczor deals with modern day misconceptions many people, including Catholics, have about the Church. 


These misconceptions include: 'The Church Hates Women', 'The Church Hates Gays.' Also on the list is 'The Church Opposes Science'. The author explains in detail, how the Church welcomes everyone. In addition, it runs several universities worldwide, with full science departments. The Vatican also has its own observatories in Italy and U.S, not to mention the discoveries of Catholic scientists. 

CHRISTOPHER KACZOR 
The Seven Big Myths About the Catholic Church 
"For instance, Gregor Mendel, who is the founder of modern genetics, Georges Lemaitre, who is the founder of the Big Bang theory or Louis Pasteur, who created the first vaccine for rabies.” 

Another is that priestly celibacy caused the sexual abuse of minors. Others listed are 'The Church Oppresses Freedom', 'The Church, Indifferent to Love, Banned Contraception,' and The Church Opposes Same Sex Marriage Because of Bigotry'

The author says he wrote the book thinking about his own friends who have left the Church, precisely because of these popular misconceptions. So now thorough his book, he hopes to dispel some of those myths by giving readers some insight into the true reasoning behind the teachings of the Catholic Church.
