The Bad, The Good, and the Hopeful...

First, "The Bad (news)" from American Papist:

A wide-ranging study on American religious life found that the Roman Catholic population has been shifting out of the Northeast to the Southwest, the percentage of Christians in the nation has declined and more people say they have no religion at all.

Fifteen percent of respondents said they had no religion, an increase from 14.2 percent in 2001 and 8.2 percent in 1990, according to the American Religious Identification Survey

Next, the "Good (news)" from Hot Air:

Chaput decries the state of Catholic education that has allowed people to fundamentally misunderstand their own faith, and scolds the church for allowing itself to become more concerned with membership than truth.

And, now "The Hopeful" from Happy Catholic.

Read all three links!
