Thanks for posting this! Unfortunately, if the vast, vast majority of those who attack The Church actually did any research before hand, they wouldnt have an argument to begin with.
Still, its a good reminder for the Faithful amongst us to brush up on the facts so that we can be better prepared to defend The Church.

You can really tell when they've done no research. They use lots of "obviously" and "of course" and "it's clear that" in their arguments.
Most of them read from the same two books, A Woman Rides the Beast by Dave Hunt and Roman Catholicismby somebody-or-other. They also have to inject a lot of sarcasm and vitriol into their arguments to flesh them out.
I don't think more than 5% of them have ever had advanced education where one has to learn what makes a good argument and how to compose one.
