7 Facts about American Catholics from Pew Research


Interesting findings from Pew Research on the state of American Catholics.

For instance, Catholicism has experienced a greater net loss due to religious switching than has any other religious tradition in the U.S.

Other facts and demographics as well. It’s worth a read.

6.5-1 ratio of lapsed Catholics to converts? This is not good.


I wonder if the desire for change in unchangeable (?) policies/teachings drove some of the switching?
