Catholic Numbers Stay the Same but Change Among the American-Born

Americans Change Faiths at Rising Rate, Report Finds - New York Times: "The Catholic Church has lost more adherents than any other group: about one-third of respondents raised Catholic said they no longer identified as such. Based on the data, the survey showed, “this means that roughly 10 percent of all Americans are former Catholics.”"

I have often wondered, to myself and on this blog, why so many Catholics were not more upset by the myriad scandals. This data shows that they might be. The loss of Catholics to the Church could also be people who have simply decided against faith. Both are sound reasons to reject the Catholic Church. I am simply glad to know the Church is losing at least the American-born tithers.
