  •  facts? (0+ / 0-)

    Can you point me to facts about how many human beings change their religion, and how many change their nationality? So far it seems like we're just talking about anecdotes.

      Ditto for expatriots vs. people who have left a religious denomination.

      This, too, shall pass. Just like the last global ecological cataclysm. C'est la vie, dude. Take a chill pill, recite the serenity prayer, go with the flow and the moderates into that "goodnight".

      •  certainty that you're right doesn't make it so (0+ / 0-)

        You're deriving a course of action for millions of human beings ("I'm willing to say, unequivocally, it's better for all of us if people leave [the Catholic Church]") based on simple faith that you're right without any facts to back that up.

        This seems ironic.
