Catholicism's Abject Failure Part 4

Updated on September 25, 2009

Religious sisters: The USA in 1970 had 157,590, while the whole world had 1,004,304. Today the USA has 59,601, while the world total now is 746,814. That works out to show that in 1970 the USA had 15.7% of the world's total, and now it's down to just 8.0%. When we compare the numbers against population increases, we find that if the USA had held steady there would now be 244,696 religious sisters, or 4.11 times more than there are now.

Parishes: The USA in 1970 had 18,076, while the whole world had 191,398. Today the USA has 18,280, while the world total now is 218,383. That works out to show that in 1970 the USA had 9.4% of the world's total, and now it's down to just 8.4%. When we compare the numbers against population increases, we find that if the USA had held steady there would now be 28,067 parishes, or 1.54 times more than there are now.

Catholic elementary schools: The USA in 1970 had 8,414, while the whole world had 89,112. Today the USA has 6,028, while the world total now is 91,694. That works out to show that in 1970 the USA had 9.4% of the world's total, and now it's down to just 6.6%. When we compare the numbers against population increases, we find that if the USA had held steady there would now be 13,065 Catholic elementary schools, or 2.17 times more than there are now.

Students in Catholic elementary schools: The USA in 1970 had 2,557,000, while the whole world had 20,396,000. Today the USA has 1,568,000, while the world total now is 29,800,000. That works out to show that in 1970 the USA had 12.5% of the world's total, and now it's down to just 5.3%. When we compare the numbers against population increases, we find that if the USA had held steady there would now be 3,970,358 students in Catholic elementary schools, or 2.53 times more than there are now.

Catholic secondary schools: The USA in 1970 had 1,624, while the whole world had 25,552. Today the USA has 1,220, while the world total now is 41,210. That works out to show that in 1970 the USA had 6.4% of the world's total, and now it's down to just 3.0%. When we compare the numbers against population increases, we find that if the USA had held steady there would now be 2,522 Catholic secondary schools, or 2.07 times more than there are now.

Students in Catholic secondary schools: The USA in 1970 had 884,181, while the whole world had 7,667,000. Today the USA has 624,515, while the world total now is 16,779,000. That works out to show that in 1970 the USA had 11.5% of the world's total, and now it's down to just 3.7%. When we compare the numbers against population increases, we find that if the USA had held steady there would now be 1,372,904 students in Catholic secondary schools, or 2.20 times more than there are now.

The deterioration, atrophy, enfeeblement, debilitation, decay, ebbing, demolition, and declension of Catholicism in the United States Of America (and in English speaking Canada as well, not to mention Australia, New Zealand, and a significant proportion of Europe) is possibly the greatest crime of our century. While we can all sit back and try to lose ourselves in our baubles, bling, and XBoxes, the fact remains that without strict and unwavering adherence to the ethical message of the Catholic Church, we are on a fast track descent into perdition.
