80% of Catholic youth leaving church by age 23, says Catholic site

From a study by well known Catholic author and well known Catholic site, Taylor Marshall says , “80% of Catholics are no longer Catholic by the time they turn 23“, along with other statistics.  Page numbers refer to a book called “The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic”:

  • Only 30 percent of Americans who were raised Catholic are still practicing (p. 24).
  • 10 percent of all adults in America are ex-Catholics, about 30 million people (p. 25).
  • Nearly 80 percent of cradle Catholics are no longer Catholic by the age of 23 (p. 33)
And that’s before every young person sees “Spotlight”, the Oscar winning movie that shows the truth about the Catholic church hiding 278 known pedophile priests just in Boston, and using all of its power to hide them and to bully the victims.  In the future, every single Catholic teen will see “Spotlight”, and realize “God’s church” could never have been so deliberately, intentionally heartless and evil, brutally defying Jesus in Matt 18:6-14.
Catholic pedophilia is now getting exposed in even worse ways elsewhere.  In tiny Altoona, PA, the Catholic church was investigated, and was hiding 115,042 documents about at least 50 known pedophile priests there.  That number 115,042 is not a typo.

Want to see a truer barometer? How full was your church last Sunday, and what about other Catholic churches that you’ve in the country (assuming you’ve gone on days other than Christmas Easter, et cetera)?

How many 23-30 year olds did you see there?

Boston’s largest church, the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, is rarely more than 10% full, even for the busiest mass on Sunday.

Speculation about the future of the Catholic church in the US
Some alarming facts about the Catholic church and it’s future:
  • there are currently 69.5 million Catholics in the US
    • however, this number is people who identify as Catholic, and doesn’t represent the number who actually show up at church on Sunday, which is much less
  • there are already about 30 million adults in America who are are ex-Catholics, (from above).
  • if US life expectancy is 78.7 years old, then by the time the current 23 year olds die in 55 years, the number of Catholics will be down to less than 20% of the current number, leaving about 14 million Catholics in the US
    • in 55 years after the number will be 20% of 14 million, or 2.8 million, which means that in 110 years, Catholics will represent less than 1% of the population of the US, if the population remains at 319 million
  • however, the number will decelerate faster than that
    • most teenagers in the future will see “Spotlight”, which illustrates the Catholic church’s treatment of the victims of its rampant child rape.  This will show most teenagers that the Catholic church is too cold, heartless, dishonest, and brutally evil to ever be considered “God’s church”
    • the movie, and other true stories that the Catholic church has been hiding about it’s rampant child rape will become more available in the future accelerating the decline of the Catholic church
    • the Catholics who leave at age 23 will not raise their children in the Catholic church, so their children and grandchildren will not be Catholic
  • people are more likely to leave more quickly if others are leaving, which is starting to happen now.  It is difficult to defend an organized child rape crime syndicate, and call it “God’s church”, if you aren’t surrounded by others agreeing with you

This is all speculation, but the Catholic church will probably be significantly smaller in 50-100 years, and may be effectively extinct.

Catholic Cardinal’s filthy rich homes

Vow of poverty?  Nope.  Pay attention to Jesus in Matt 19:21?  Ha!

Catholic Cardinals scoff at Matt 19:21:

  • “Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to [the] poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

Obviously, when you see them living in luxury, Catholics feel comfortable dropping their standards of Christianity.

Here are some of the filthy rich homes inhabited by Catholic Cardinals (with news references to substantiating articles):

Some more of the filthy riches of Catholic bishops and cardinals is shown in the CNN article on Bishop’s Lavish Homes.

Catholic leaders – lowering your standards for Christianity.

True Christians leaving the Catholic church in record numbers

That makes sense as the child rape scandal, and the Catholic church’s policy to hide every known pedophile priest, and fight every victim, in brutal defiance of Jesus in Matt 18:6-14, comes to light.
More statistics from the article, many of which are based on a Pew Research study done in 2014 and released in 2015:
  • for every 1 Catholic convert, more than 6 Catholics leave the church
  • number of Catholics in the United States dropped by 3 million since 2007
  • Catholicism loses more members than it gains at a higher rate than any other denomination, with nearly 13 percent of all Americans describing themselves as “former Catholics.”
  •  the average Catholic is getting a bit older, with the median age of 49, up 4 years
  • The share of Massachusetts Catholics dropped 9 percentage points since the last survey in 2007
From a study by Marshall, “80% of Catholics are no longer Catholic by the time they turn 23“, where many of the statistics come from :
  • Only 30 percent of Americans who were raised Catholic are still practicing (p. 24).
  • 10 percent of all adults in America are ex-Catholics, about 30 million people (p. 25).
  • Nearly 80 percent of cradle Catholics are no longer Catholic by the age of 23 (p. 33)
And that’s before everyone sees “Spotlight”, the Oscar winning movie that shows the truth about the Catholic church hiding 271 known pedophile priests in Boston alone, and using all of its power to hide them and to bully the victims.

Bishop Finn, proven pedophile protector, finally forced to resign

Bishop Finn was finally forced to resign after years of public pressure.  He hid a known, proven pedohile names Fr Shawn Ratigan, who is now serving 50 years in jail for possession of child porn, after being hidden by Bishop Finn for at least a year after he first heard about it, and at least 6 months after a computer tech found disturbing and disgusting child porn on Ratigans computer.

May 19, 2010: Julie Hess, principal of St. Patrick’s School, meets with Vicar General Robert Murphy about concerns of parents and school staff over “boundary issues” between the Rev. Shawn Ratigan and children. Murphy that month informs Finn about the concerns.

June 2010: Finn follows up on the issue with Ratigan

Dec. 16, 2010: A computer technician examines a laptop owned by Ratigan and observes alarming pictures of children. He takes the laptop to a parish official, who calls Murphy and takes him the laptop. Before receiving the laptop, Murphy calls a Kansas City police captain, describing a single photograph of a naked child in a nonsexual pose. The captain says that was not likely considered child pornography.

“Catholic Truth” vs the real truth

Catholics claim that Fr Murphy “called the police” and “described a picture of a naked photograph of a child”, and the police and said it was not likely to be child porn.

The real truth

Murphy didn’t “call the police”, which implies calling the police station.  He actually called a police friend who was affiliated with the diocese.  Murphy found a bunch of disturbing pictures on Ratigan’s computer, and distorted the truth for the police friend.  The pictures will be described later (or you can scan down, and they would make a normal person puke).

Murphy said it was a nude photo of a relative, which deceptively sounds innocuous.

The truth about the pictures

The truth is that the pictures were not of a relative, but that’s not the disturbing part.  The pictures were STAGED PHOTOS OF A 2 TO 3 YEAR OLD GIRL DOING A STRIPTEASE, with the diaper being gradually moved, until “her genitals were fully exposed”.

Brilliant way of telling a fraction of the truth, don’t they?  Murphy wasn’t 100% completely lying (except about it being a relative, which makes it sound potentially innocent). But he was certainly lying in the eyes of God, intentionally trying to deceive his police friend

Proof, from the Catholic report, online

The proof is in the Graves report, the internal investigation done by the Catholic church by a company whose JOB is to protect the brand name of a company in crisis (from their web page), not to investigate.

The actual report is “hidden” online so it can’t be found easily in Google, but can be found in 2 places:

Read Page 90 and puke for yourself about the toddler doing a stages strip tease out of a diaper with fully vagina exposed, then decide if Fr Murphy was telling “the truth” or “the Catholic truth”.

Page 86 and 87 will tell you the true version of “calling the police”, and how a “nude child relative” was actually a STAGED strip tease.

At one point, when Finn was told about it, he said … brace yourself … “Boys will be boys”. The woman who said it later retracted it. Think she was afraid of her job? Who could possibly make that up, and why would they? (Source KSHB TV: Bishop Finn says “Boys will be boys” about pedophilia).

Think a CEO of any company wouldn’t be fired for hiding this from the ACTUAL police?  Of course, Ratigan also managed to be around children months later, although Finn says he told him not to, but Finn never made any effort to enforce it.  How would the CEO be judged if he knew about a known pedophile, and then allowed that pedophile unsupervised around children after not reporting the truth to the police?

And the evidence was destroyed, instead of being turned in by Finn. Again, what would you do to the CEO? Would you pay $1.4 million for his legal defense and another $300,000 for Ratigan? The Catholic church did.

Ratigan’s suicide note says he’s sorry for the children he hurt. When will we find out about the children he HURT, instead of just the ones he was looking at?

Cardinal George, admitted Catholic pedophile protector, dies & is honored

Cardinal George was one of the greatest pedophile protectors in the history of the despicable Catholic church, running Chicago’s Catholic church for 17 years.  However, Catholics honor him with a funeral set for a false king.

He ADMITTED in 2014 that he and his bishops and priests in Chicago had hidden, moved and protected ANOTHER 36 “Jerry Sandusky” priests in addition to the 30 that they admitted earlier in the year, in absolutely BRUTAL defiance of Jesus in Matt 18:6-14.  (Chicago Tribune: Cardinal George admits hiding & protecting 66 pedophile priests).

Of course, those are only the ones that we know about.  Now that he’s dead, he gets to find out about all the others that never came forward.

And, of course, Cardinal George never tried to find and help the victims, in brutal defiance of Jesus in Matt 18:6-14.

He also had enforcers who threatened to “beat child rape victims with a baseball bat”, like Catholic priest Father Ross. (Chicago Tribune: Priest threatens child rape victims)

How appropriate that Archbishop Satan (sp?) did his homily.

Of course, he was also filthy rich, living in a $14 mansion, in complete defiance of Jesus in Matt 19:21.

Cardinal George will now be honored by the Catholic church, who defends and protects 100% of their “confessed” pedo-priests, in BRUTAL defiance of Jesus.  Cardinal George is at the bottom of the ocean for eternity, or worse, according to Jesus Matt 18:6

Catholic child sex abuse, & where Jesus said it wasn’t forgivable

Catholics will inevitably tell you that all sins are forgiven.  However, Jesus said very clearly in Matthew 18:6 that child rape wasn’t forgiven.  Here’s the quote from the bible:

  • “whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea”.  – Matthew 18:6

This are pretty powerful and punishing words from Jesus.  They are so important that they are also duplicated in Luke 17:2 and Mark 9:42.

Jesus is clearly saying that if anyone causes a child to stumble, they are not forgiven.  In fact, the best thing that could happen to them is that they are drowned in the bottom of the sea with a millstone around their neck.  And that’s just if they cause a child to “stumble”.

Imagine if they do much worse.  Imagine if they:

  1. rape a child (or intentionally protect someone who did)
  2. choose a child who was one of Jesus’ most devout followers, like an altar boy, or a young Catholic girl
  3. do unimaginable psychological damage to the child, making the child think they were being raped by “Christ on earth” (which is what Catholic priests call themselves), with God watching, knowing that God is powerful enough to stop it but didn’t
  4. blame the child, as most pedophile priests did, saying the child deserved it for some reason (a failed test, having impure thoughts, et cetera)
  5. claimed to be a leader in “God’s church” while they either did it or hid someone else who did it

Catholic child rape psychologically destroys a child, but Catholics don’t have enough empathy to think about what the child went through, or to care about what the child went through.  However, if you ever mention any of the details, like when Fr Cudemo stood over a naked 10 year old girl and ejaculated on her and in her mouth (Philadelphia Grand Jury report, Pg 142 ), many Catholics will immediately leave the conversation.

They don’t have the strength to listen to it as an adult, but they have no empathy for the horror that the child actually had to live through it, and and certainly won’t fight for the child that it happened to.

Jesus would have no sympathy for anyone who raped a child, or any of the priests that accepted the confession  of a child rapist.  The 2nd group of priests, who accepted those confessions, did it in absolute defiance of what Jesus said in Matthew 18:6, and they did it all over the world in the Catholic church.  The Church Of Jesus Christ could not do that.

Catholic, of course, will try to make lame excuses, which include:

  • Raping a child doesn’t cause them to “stumble”
  • Jesus meant that you shouldn’t turn children away from God, and raping doesn’t do that, so if the child left the church, it is their own fault
  • Jesus forgives everybody for everything, and He didn’t mean what He said in 3 of the 4 gospels

These are foolish excuses, of course.

It is clear that Jesus would have no forgiveness for anyone who raped a child,  or anyone who protected the rapists, or a church that did it consistently, intentionally, wordwide, until they got caught.

Other interesting notes:

  • Jesus goes on to say in Matthew 18:6-14 that the Catholic church should have found every victim and gotten them psychological help.  More in another blog later
  • The “Millstone into the sea” reference is only used in one other place in the bible, in the Books of Revelation.  They are always subject to interpretation, but it is hard to argue that Revelation Chapters 14-18 is talking about anything other than the 144,000 child rape victims, and throwing Babylon (the Catholic church) into the sea with a millstone around it’s neck.  More in another blog later.
