Opus Dei is one of the most controversial movements within the Roman Catholic Church. While it is supported by various Popes and conservative Catholic leaders, many opponents allege it applies cult-like practices in recruitment. Others allege that Opus Dei has ultraconservative theology, practices misogyny, secrecy, and supports dictatorships. They also criticize its influence in church and society. CNNs Vatican analyst, John Allen, Jr., and Dr. Vittorio Messori, both Catholic journalists, state that these allegations are mere myths, a far cry from Opus Deis reality. Some of these alleged myths about Opus Dei are rooted in the misunderstanding of Catholic faith on the view of God-human relationship (pro-life issues) and Natural Law (the different roles of the two genders)- while others are rooted in complete slanderous rumours.
