User: how has roman catholics experniced prejudice or discrimination.

Weegy: Anti-Catholicism is a generic term for discrimination, hostility or prejudice directed against Catholicism, and especially against the Catholic Church, its clergy or its adherents. [ The term also applies to the religious persecution of Catholics or to a "religious orientation opposed to Catholicism."[6] In the Early Modern period, the Catholic Church struggled to maintain its traditional religious and political role in the face of secular powers in Europe. ]
