The author of "Why Catholics Are Right" is no longer Catholic

The author of Why Catholics Are Right has ditched the Catholic Church.

Michael Coren is a well-known writer and talk show host from Canada. He's perhaps best known for The Michael Coren Show and The Arena with Michael Coren on Canadian television, where he earned the reputation of being an unapologetic conservative.

He's appeared on Church Militant's Mic'd Up program as recently as 2013, and Michael Voris was once a guest on The Michael Coren Show in 2011.

When he first became a Christian in his twenties, he joined the Catholic Church. Soon afterward, though, he left Catholicism in favor of evangelical Christianity.
 
In 2004, however, Coren again became convinced of the truth of Catholicism and re-converted to the Faith.

And now he's apparently an Anglican. The Anglican Diocese of Toronto has a photo posted April 23 on Facebook of Coren preparing “for his reception into the Anglican Communion.”

The program for Saint James Cathedral also lists him as a candidate for reception into the Anglican Communion on April 19th. The Anglican “Church” has no communion with the true Church.

Coren had already fallen out of favor with many Catholics last year when he announced his loyalty to the gay agenda. After years of staunch opposition to the pro-sodomy movement currently running roughshod over Christians in the West (and recently beyond it), regarding homosexuality he wrote in an article last June titled “Why I was wrong”: “I have evolved on this single subject.”

Anglican leaders have for decades developed a reputation for caving in to the demands of modern society, softening their positions on such things as contraception, homosexuality, as well as gay and female priests and bishops.
