Young Hispanics less likely to be Catholic

WASHINGTON - A name like Maria or Jose isn't a solid clue anymore that the person who answers to it will worship in a Catholic church on Sundays

Is this really news? Evangelicals have been making incredible headway into Central and South America for a long time. The stability of the RCC in the US has relied on the steady influx of RCs from these areas of the world to retain their numbers.

Well, they better come up with a new strategy, because Latinos and Hispanics are being converted both before and after they find their way to the US.

What a shame.
I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.
