    Do you think Sly Stallone is of the Catholic faith?  All of his Rocky movies lead to the religion.

    I am not too sure about that. I enjoyed his movies and I think his character had strong faith in himself and the almighty. Great question.

    That was a good question, and it piqued my curiosity, because I really didn't know. I could not remember hearing anything about his religious background or faith, but the Rocky films have been said to reflect a lot about his life and his beliefs by many people.
    I turned to Wikipedia, and found this: Stallone stopped going to church as his acting career progressed. He began to rediscover his childhood faith when his daughter was born ill in 1996, and is now a churchgoing Catholic.[45]
    So it would appear that he is, indeed a Catholic.
    Thanks for the great question.

    I'm sure his religion of origin is Roman Catholic.  After all, his ethnic background is ITALIAN......and percentage of Italians who are Catholic??   Only about 98%!  lol

    Hmm, I haven't even thought about it before. I guess it is tendency to assume that most people of Italian descent are Catholic, but frankly most Italians I have known are not. And though someone's religion is none of my business I am curious now, lol!

    I agree with you all. Wilipedia that David Legg spoke of seems believable. Although Wikipedia is not always 100% correct it seems to be truthful.  I sure hope so though, I've have in the past understood Christianity is probably the most unpopular religion in Hollywood. But then whose going to give Sylvester Stallone a hard time about his religion. ha ha ha

    What a pathetic question.  You certainly have some weird things going through your head if the best you can think of is if someone is a catholic or not.  What does it matter, and who cares anyway?

    What difference does it make what religious persuasion he might have?
