Website Review: The Southern Cross

A review based on: http://www.scross.co.za

Description

This is the website of South Africa's National Catholic weekly, sold in churches around the country, and accepted largely by Catholics.

It doesn't take long to discover that this website has many articles that are not faithful to the Magisterium of the Church. It attacks the latest Vatican move to screen priests as "unfair" discrimination against gays, and undermines the Church's teaching on contraception and abortion. It has also heralded Barack Obama as a savior.

The site offers quite a few good articles that uphold the Church's teachings. If you visit, be aware that you must sift carefully through the contents since you may run into some very dissident material.
