This is not talking about the general meaning of the word "catholic" which means "universal", this is talking about the Catholic religion. In your opinion, is that a true statement or a false one? Please state why and tell your religion. No hate answers toward Catholics, please.
Update: To Aries007 - I have seen it several times recently on this site. Here is the question that I got the statement from. I copied it word for word from the middle of Thin Aboutit's answer.
