The majority of Catholics in America are heretics

According to a new poll, Catholics in America are actually thinking like they are protestants.

Here are some examples from the article that prove that:
  • few parishioners overall said they go to confession, and
  • Sixty-eight percent of all Catholics surveyed said they agreed that they believed they could be in good standing with the church without going to weekly Mass.
  • For Catholics who attend Mass at least once a month, an overwhelming majority of the young and older generation believe Christ is present in the Eucharist
  • nearly one-third of the nation's 64 million Catholics attend Mass in any given week

Even though, not surprising, this is incredibly sad. Bishop Niederauer was "was encouraged by the openness to faith in the survey but said it highlighted the need for better religious instruction."

"Better religious instruction"? Well, that's putting it lightly. All priests should be embarrassed by these figures; they are the shepherds of the flock and their flock is going astray!
