It apparently gets you spanked and branded a Sedevacantist if you try to buy it in brick and mortar stores. Word to the wise.

That literally made no sense. What is Iota Unum? You need to provide some links or background information.

C'mon, CC, you know it's a book and you can Google. I'm more confused over the "brick and mortar" thing. It sounds so quaint. :shock:

Yeah I rather seriously doubt there is any bookstore anywhere with staff so knowledgeable about this particular book that they would say or think anything, one way or the other, about anyone who bought it.

I would have noted it, in my day. I got some odd order requests.

Wouldn't have kept a file on it, though.

"Brick and mortar" is a common expression for a physical store as opposed to online shopping.

I read the reviews for the book and I can understand why they would roll their eyes at you on that account. I don't know whether the actual contents of the book back that up or not, but it's not high on my reading list.

He knows what it means, he was implying that print is dead and it is all about e-books these days.

Fortunately there are two Catholic bookstores here locally even despite the insignificant Catholic population.

It is an interesting read, but I disagree with it on many points.

I would not recommend it for anyone with traditionalist leanings.

Can't tell if you're supporting or protesting me.

Got a suspicion, though.
