Includes The Lies and Fallacies of the Encyclopedia Britannica. Shows how Christianity has controlled the functions of society. Western civilization has been dependent upon the Christian religion for its ethical and moral teachings and, ultimately, its conduct. McCabe demonstrates, however, that the moral and ethical conduct of western civilization was never good and the chief cause of this has been Christianity. The Renaissance was a rebirth or revival of art, literature, and learning, with the major catalyst being Martin Luther’s rebellious breakaway from the Church in 1524. It could not get started until the old ways of suppression were shaken, and today it has still not happened completely. We still hang on to this socially repressive system, according to McCabe, because it continues to function as an authority. The Lies and Fallacies continues this theme, documenting an effort by clerical forces to remove certain historical facts surrounding Christianity. Shows exactly how and why vital facts were either doctored or removed from the encyclopedia to cast Christianity into a better social and religious light.
