Storyline

Saints vs. Scoundrels presents a lively debate between the most interesting and influential saints and sinners of history. Host Benjamin Wiker will help guide viewers through pairs of great Saints and Scoundrels, such as Saint Augustine and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Saint Thomas More and Henry VIII, and Flannery O'Connor and Ayn Rand. We'll learn about their lives, their impact on history, and most of all, what a difference it makes to follow God or reject Him. Written by Benjamin Wiker

Catholic Propaganda
13 February 2018 | by juanruiz-65679See all my reviews

The premise of this show takes from Steve Allen's old PBS series "Meeting of Minds." Characters from the past come together to debate their viewpoints. But that is about all the two have in common.

For those expecting objective history in these programs, you will be sadly disappointed. This is nothing but Catholic apologetics. All the characters are flat: the Saints are pristine humans, faithfully following Catholic dogma; the Scoundrels are antagonists, without a scintilla of worth.

Neither is there any attempt to place the characters in an historical context. No backround on what was behind the ideas of Machiavelli, Rousseau, Rand. Just isolated quotes completely detached from their works.

But this is EWTN, the "Coming Home" network. So one has to expect a one-sided view.
