Website Review: About.Com - Catholicism

A review based on:


This site is part of the network which features different topics hosted by an individual knowledgeable in each particular area. The webmaster of "Catholicism" is well qualified to manage this section and everything that he has added to the site is faithful to Church teachings. However, some of the links furnished by the parent company are problematic at best, often anti-Catholic. This is the only reason for the yellow rating.
