The Gospel According to John Bull

These two have developed a convenient technique: they deny that they are writing as Catholics when they see that such a commitment would hamper their free expression, but advertise their Faith when they are trying to get the Catholic public to buy their books. In the latter case they assure their readers that what they are writing is not simply pornography, but pornography with a point; that it has a very moral and Catholic purpose, and will probably lead thousands to the truth.

What?!  I haven't read anything by Waugh or Greene, but I was under the impression they were both good and devout Catholic authors.

Are they really responsible for writing pornography, or is that just hyperbole by the article?
