I thought everyone except dedicated anti-Catholics already knew Dave Hunt's Babylon fantasy is based on old lies.
Not only just Catholics disagree with this fantasy based trash. Hislop recognized that there was a large anti-Catholic audience and facts weren't something he cared about. He only cared about increasing sales of his anti-Catholic lies by tying them to the wave of of interest in archeology in Europe at the time.
Regular Christians who are just interested in keeping him honest by calling him on constantly misquoting noted Christians.
A great many people are well aware that Hunt bases his entire book on known lies and fantasies from an earlier era. As such, honest Christians who just want to keep fellow Christians from error work to show how Hunt is catering to the anti-Catholic market by publishing known lies.
And in particular, as the previous link shows, a noted author investigated the primary source of all of Dave Hunt's anti-Catholic lies and propaganda and realized it was all fiction based on Hislop's work, then withdrew his own book from publication because he had taken Hunt at face value and relied on his work.
It was obvious that Hunt was just repeating Hislop's work. After all, if the same lies helped Herbert W Armstrong gain followers, those lies are sure to have an audiance who will pay to read them. Aside from references to archaeological digs and historical sites that don't exist and never have existed, it contradicts known factual connections in the very areas it claims to base conclusions on.
There are more than enough sites where non-Catholics who are only interested in the truth debunk both Hislop's work and Hunt's work that is based on it. Those who haven't decided they don't care about the truth as care their anti-Catholic agneda can clearly see the "Catholics are pagans" lies are based on the same sort of scholarship the Book of Mormon is based on; the market savvy of the the author of the lies and nothing more.
If you find someone defending Hislop's work, either as quoted by Hunt or in the original work, you find someone who is either a dedicated anti-Catholic and doesn't care about the truth, or someone trying to make a quick buck by feeding known lies to an existing audiance who loves the lies, or both.
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
