John Smeaton On The Tablet

John Smeaton of SPUC, has a very interesting post ( which in part shows that The Tablet is totally anti-Catholic. It is clear that The Pill is totally rotten to it's core and may well always have been. As one comment on Fr Z's blog said in response to my post, Catholics Don't Take The Pill Or The Tablet, I’m reading “The Letters and Diaries of John Henry Newman”, and occasional mentions of the Tablet pop up, with comments strikingly similar to ours (of course, I’m also not an Ultramontane!). Let’s see, so far for this volume, subtitled The Vatican Council, I found:
“The Tablet is far from accurate in many of its details.”—Bishop W. B. Ullathorne, 20 January 1870 (XXV, 18, n. 1).
“I go about very little [in Rome], but wherever I do go, I find the Tablet is considered intolerable.”—Henry James Coleridge, S.J., 23 March 1870 (XXV, 60, n. 3).
Ven. John Henry Newman, pray for us!

Some of the other comments on Father's post are also of interest....well to me at least.
