Website Review: CyberFaith
A review based on: http://www.cyberfaith.com
CyberFaith is a Catholic resources start page, with a special focus on catechetics and liturgical content. It is sponsored by the William H. Sadlier publishing company, a major U.S. catechism publisher. The site, as well as the publishing company, places emphasis on providing materials with content that is determined by mainstream U.S. Catholicism rather than by a critical application of official teaching. The result is that the site tends to present a view of Catholicism which over-emphasizes naturalism and social justice concerns.
