Bad Websites: Catholics should avoid these

I have been meaning to create this post for quite some time. I wanted to put together a list of websites that claim to be "Catholic" but should never be supported by Catholics. I am using Catholic Culture's website reviews for some of the information. Please realize that these websites are generally opposed to the truth of the Faith. If you have a link to one of these websites on your blog/website, I strongly ask you to remove it in an effort for us all to promote the complete truth not a "watering down" of the Catholic Faith.

All links below are to the Catholic Culture review of the website; you may have to register (I believe it's free) to see the review by Catholic Culture. I do not want to post an actual link to the website since that is to be avoided.
These are some of the many websites that I believe all faithful Catholics should avoid. If you would like to let me know about any others, please comment below in the comment box.
If you have any suggestions on others to add to this listing, please comment in the comment box below.

Update (Sept 2011):

I wanted to alert people that there are some websites that claim to be Catholic, but are in fact Protestant websites devoted to getting Catholics to stop praying Our Blessed Lady. These websites seem familiar with traditional critiques of Medjugorje and use this knowledge to paint all Marian apparitions as essentially part of the New Age movement.  So for example one of the website warns of "new age" rosaries, which are in fact just plain old rosaries (  Another website warns of Saint Louis de Montefort's Total Consecration to Mary as essentially selling your soul to the devil (  Another website seems at first to be offering information on a Novena to Saint Jude, but actually tries to sway the reader from saying novenas at all!
