12. At what point does a religion...

become so disconnected from its members that it no longer functions?

I have read that 98% of US Catholic women use birth control.... http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/04/14/us-most-catholic-women-us-use-birth-cont-idUSTRE73D4SZ20110414

... and that American Catholic women have a higher abortion rate than protestant women......
http://factcheck.org/2007/12/abortions-comparing-catholic-and-protestant-women/

Abortion and birth control are two biggies in the church.

So..... WTF?

Like Carlin...."I was born an Irish Catholic... now I'm an American."
