Henry McKervey objects to Merton's apologetic approach in response to unbelievers, and states his (McKervey's) belief that the Catholic Church is the long-time victim of persecution.
Henry A. McKervey writes to the editor of Harper's from Spokane, Washington, in response to "Apologies to an Unbeliever", published in the November 1966 issue of Harper's Magazine (and later appeared with a related article in the book Faith and Violence).
