    Heh, heh, heh... the pastor withdrew from the Dem innauguration over anti-gay comments made two decades ago.

    After the 'revelation' surfaced, the wingnuts began actively recruiting him to be their next presidential nominee.

    The left is tolerant only of those who hold the same opinions as they do.

    Thats because you are unable and unwilling to separate church from state. 

    Fortunately, the unaffiliated, the agnostic, the atheist and the religiously indifferent population is growing in America, and they will slowly help push the right-wing bible crowd to the margins of society, right where they belong...away from public policy.

Slightly more than 58.9 million Catholic adherents and 20,589 congregations were reported in 2,960 counties across the country. The researchers found Massachusetts to be the most Catholic state with around 44.9 percent of population identifying as Catholic adherents

    This article in today's news should give you a good idea of the health of catholicism in MA.

    http://www.boston.com/metrodesk/2013/01/10/archdiocese-boston-unveils-details-first-wave-parish-reorganization/FyVlyBrkRaAz8rpx8pC8yO/story.html?comments=all#readerComm

     

    The reorganization, to be phased in over five years, is designed to help parishes cope with diminished Mass attendance, a shortage of priests, and anemic fund-raising. Church officials hope the plan will eventually strengthen parishes and help reverse those trends.

    Today, fewer than 20 percent of baptized Catholics in the archdiocese attend Mass, down from 70 percent several decades ago.

    Also likely the highest number of lapsed catholics in the union.  NOT most religious.

    Hispanics are overwhelmingly catholic and yet voted for Obama 3-1.

    At least one-third of American catholics have left the church entirely.

    As a KOC para-military organization member, you should know this.  But do you know why??

    Most catholics couldn't care less about abortions, birth control, gay marriage, or the evangelical movement.  The church no longer effectively reflects their concerns.

    OTOH, "Dogma" was a great flick, so there's that.

    New York may have the most jews, but that doesn't make it the most religious.

    Didn't say it did. I pointed out it's the most Catholic based on a study

    The church is supposed to reflect the views of parishioners ?

    That's back asswards.



    Their "concerns", I said.  Otherwise, why are they even there??

    But yes, their views, too, if the church is worth its salt.

    Very well.  Some people appear to confuse the two.

    But I would also be curious to know how many of those 'adherents' attend mass regularly, if at all...a measure of faith according to church doctrine.

    Wow you're the spokes person for the catholic community? Did you count the catholics as they left to get that number or is it some opinion based on 100 people or so.

    You determine what catholics believe in now? or do you have some kind of super power that tells you what MOST believe??

    fvcking narcissist!!
