Connect the Catholic Dots in Minnesota.

This is easy: there are only 4 dots.

  1. Across the US, and also more broadly across much of the rest of the world, Catholics are leaving the Church in droves.  In the US, the group of former Catholics now outnumber any denomination other than the Catholics themselves.
  2. Research has shown that the primary reasons for leaving the church are dissatisfaction with the inappropriate teaching on sexual ethics, and most especially on same sex relationships.
  3. The Minnesota bishops have been particularly hostile to gay and lesbian Catholics, most recently with the mass mailing of DVD’s opposing gay marriage.
  4. There are plans to close 21 parishes in the Twin Cities.

Is anyone surprised?
