Response to Lordquinton (Original post)

5. Catholics are a die-hard bunch.

It takes a lot to turn them against their church. I know a lot of atheists and agnostics as well as non-religious people and most of the ones who are now atheists were Catholics when they were young. I don't see nearly as many American Catholics joining the ranks. I think millennials especially have soured to this particular religion since the sex scandals have been in the news while they were forming their opinions about religion. I can't wait for Bill Maher tomorrow night...he will do this justice in his own unique way. It pisses me off that they get away with not paying taxes on top of everything else.

Do you think Catholics around the world will respond the same way the US has? South America is very, very Catholic.
