  •  i never believe the "Catholic" numbers (3+ / 0-)

    If you were christened in a Catholic church, they count you, even if you haven't attended Mass in decades. Protestant churches, on the other hand (at least most mainline churches) pay their national organizations a headcount fee (called a per capita) for each member. So it behooves them to keep their numbers honest.

    I mean, 24% of the U.S. is Catholic, if you believe the official numbers. No way!
