Excerpt from How I Became a Non-Catholic

As a sort of a defense as to how I became a non-Catholic and left the Catholic Church, and by reading various works of Catholics, and converts to Catholicity, such as 'Why I Am a Catholic,' 'How I Became a Catholic,' etc., I was inspired to write a work giving some of the reasons how I became a non-Catholic. For I was 'born and bred' a Catholic and was a practical one up to the thirty-sixth year of my age, so that some Catholics, including some of my relatives, have expressed great surprise that I, an 'ignorant and illiterate person,' should leave the Church - a short form I will use for the words 'Catholic Church' - when intellectual giants, highly educated, wealthy, cultured and refined people are Catholics, or Protestants and others, after a lifetime of Protestantism and investigation, oftentimes near the end of their lives, become converts to Catholicity. They have even gone so far as to say that I had lost my mind, had become crazy, was in the power of the devil, was stubborn, proud, etc.

In view of that, then, I believe some sort of a defense or explanation should be made of my course or action for becoming a non-Catholic and leaving the Church.
