"Over-simplification of Church problems."

RealCatholicTV programs sometimes over-simplify problems within the Church or paint the Church as a whole with too broad a brush. Many programs make blanket assertions about common failings as if they are completely universal, sometimes giving the impression that the vast majority of bishops and priests are woefully inadequate.

An example of the over-simplification of an issue would be the Vortex for July 12, 2010 ("The Long Goodbye") in which efforts to get fallen away Catholics to return to the practice of their faith are universally dismissed as needed only because of failures internal to the Church herself, and complex problems of secularism and theological modernism are consistently referred to as "Protestantism."

While RealCatholicTV definitely addresses real problems within the Church, in general its programming could be improved both by avoiding blanket claims and employing greater analytical care.
