  •  Just how do you leave it? (0+ / 0-)

    Since the only way I know of is excommunication?  When you are baptized in your infancy you are counted as a Catholic and included in the numbers no matter that you change religions, or decide you have no religion when you are older.
       As a result of this I notice in Vermont where I live, the Catholic Churches have many fewer masses on Sundays than when I was a girl, and there are very few people in the pews when they do have them.  So where are all the Catholics???
      The numbers are suspect, I am unaware of any way to drop out and delete your number other than being excommunicated.  If you know another way I would like to hear it.
       Otherwise, non practicing Catholics, converts to other religions, and converted athiests are still counted in the Catholic total numbers.

    •  You Register with a Parish (0+ / 0-)

      My parish knows who is and who is not a member.  And they make sure and mail out offering envelopes every month & that your children get religious instruction.
