I've read the comments on CNN. It's typical anti-Catholic rants. Why would the Discovery Channel lie about something like this? Ka-ching!! This is not going to help the Church's image at all and I'm very disappointed in the Discovery Channel. I will not watch any programs on that channel or provide any financial support.
