The Hidden Exodus: Catholics Becoming Protestants.
Sadly for many it will be a lateral move, there will be a group like myself who are truly born again, but nothing is really acheived from leaving the harlot, unsaved and entering into a "daughter" organization. I didn't realize the number was as high as one-third of all members, but it does not surprise me.
The U.S. Religious Landscape Survey by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life has put hard numbers on the anecdotal evidence: One out of every 10 Americans is an ex-Catholic. If they were a separate denomination, they would be the third-largest denomination in the United States, after Catholics and Baptists. One of three people who were raised Catholic no longer identifies as Catholic.
Any other institution that lost one-third of its members would want to know why. But the U.S. bishops have never devoted any time at their national meetings to discussing the exodus. Nor have they spent a dime trying to find out why it is happening.
