Explaining the doctrine of one true church
Following up on this

It’s nothing new and far more nuanced than the (ex-) Protestant mainstream media are willing to admit.
It’s a staple of much writing about religion in the popular media that religious belief simply can’t be a matter of truth, but is instead a matter of preference or, at most, an expression of an utterly ineffable spiritual experience. But this position, ironically, assumes a superior vantage point on the truth of the matter than that occupied by sincere religious believers themselves.

Also, apparently, according to the LRC blog, telling the Catholic Church what it ought to think and do is among the Stuff the Upper Middle Class Like.
