Talking the Talk but Not Walking the Walk

 

What the Catholic Church says and reality are two opposite points on the moral compass

By their fruits ye shall know them


Six of the eight states where 50 percent or more of the public supports gay marriage are the states with the highest proportion of Catholics, ranging from Rhode Island at 46 percent to New York and California at 37 percent. Meanwhile, the eight states most opposed to gay marriage include six of the seven with the lowest proportion of Catholics, from Alabama at six percent to North Carolina at nine percent. In other words, support for same-sex marriage is directly related to the proportion of Catholics in a given state

In Summary

 

ALL of the Murder Capitols of the World are in the US, in CATHOLIC cities!  Compared to Christians in mostly Protestant states, pagans in mostly Catholic states are six TIMES more likely to murder even though they have five TIMES as many police per capita, 8 TIMES more likely to have an abortion even though this "church" claims it opposes abortion, 21% more likely to divorce even though they are 50% less likely to marry in the first place, and have SAT scores 228 points lower even though they spend FIVE TIMES as much per student for "education", not even counting the 40% of the students in states like Delaware who aren’t included in SAT scores because they never even graduate from high school?"  While the vast majority of the voters in the 35 mostly Protestant states, plus now Texas and California, have banned sodomite marriages, the mostly Catholic states, including Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Connecticut, and New York, have sugar coated this issue by calling it “gay rights” and “legalized” the abomination called “gay marriages”.  The close vote in California, 52% for banning sodomy and 48% opposed, is due to the high percentage of Catholics in the state, 28.8%, demonstrating that Catholicism’s influence adversely affects twice as many of the population as their actual church membership.

74% of the population of Brazil are Catholics, making it the most Catholic place on the planet, compared to "only"
20% in the US, and less than 2% in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland (who have the world's lowest crime rates and longest life expectancies). At 40,974 murders, Brazil is the Murder Capital of the World, ranking number
one,while we rank 14th, at "only" 12,996 murders. If we had a murder rate equivalent to Catholic free countries
like Japan, Saudi Arabia, or Sweden, we would have 11,000 fewer murders EACH YEAR. At 78 per 100k population
Brazil ranks 13th in the WORLD in crime levels, compared to our 45th ranking at "only" 56. Ditto above if no
Catholics. At 71.6 years, men in Brazil rank 86th in life expectancy, compared to 76.4 years for American men at
39th place, 79.9 years for Sweden at 11th place, 80.5 for Singapore at 4th place. If we had no Catholics we would
rank about 25th. Brazil ranks 16th in the world in AIDS deaths with 660,000 people living with HIV, and therefore
poised to die a horrible AIDS death. This is about the only category where Brazil performed better than us,as we
have 1.2 million and rank 8th. Less, than 8,100 TOTAL PEOPLE have HIV in Catholic-free countries like Japan,
Demark, Norway, Guyana, Lebanon, Hong Kong, and even Azerbaijan. And last but not least, about the only country
in the world whose 12th graders could possibly score lower than Italy's in math tests like TIMSS and PISA is
Brazil, and yup, you guessed it: on the 2008 12th Grade TIMSS Advanced Math Test, Brazil scored 386, which is 63 points lower than Italy, who scored 48 points lower than Iran, who scored 64 points lower than Russia.

Social Pathology in Catholic States

 

Federal statistics reveal that across the nation, from state to state, there’s a huge difference in social pathology, with murder rates varying 6 fold, abortion rates varying 8 fold, SAT scores varying 228 points, marriage rates varying 72%, and divorce rates varying 21%.  The states with the highest percentage of Catholics (i.e., Rhode Island with 59%, and Massachusetts with 43%) do very poorly in all these areas, whereas the states with the least percentage of Catholics (i.e., North Dakota with 22%, Iowa with 17%, and Utah with 8%) are at the opposite end of the spectrum.

Where you would expect Catholic states to have the lowest abortion rates because of opposition to abortion by the Catholic Church, the abortion rates in ALL of these states are the highest in the country, with the rate in New York (38% Catholic) being 8 times higher than the rate in South Dakota (20% Catholic).  Where you would expect the marriage rate in Catholic states to be the highest, their rates are actually the lowest, with non-Catholic states like Utah (8.3% Catholics) having a marriage rate 73% higher than Catholic states like New York.  With the putative Catholic opposition to divorce, you’d expect to see a clear and distinct difference between states in this area, but relative to the low marriage rates of the predominately Catholic states, there’s no such distinction.  As a percent of the number of marriages, divorces in the most Catholic state Rhode Island (with 59% Catholics) are on par with the least Catholic state Utah (with 8% Catholics).  And even here, Utah wins because their marriage rate is 48% higher than Rhode Island anyway.

A real unexpected outcome of evaluating these statistics is the much lower murder rates in ALL the least Catholic states relative to ALL the most Catholic states.  For decades now, the murder rates in non-Catholic states like Vermont, Iowa, North Dakota, and South Dakota have been lower than 1 per 100,000 population, contrasted to rates greater than 5 in ALL these mainly Catholic states.  In 1994, compared to North Dakota, the murder rate in New York was 55 TIMES higher, in Rhode Island was 20 TIMES higher, and in Massachusetts was 17 TIMES higher.

If the abortion rate of the entire nation were equivalent to South Dakota, there would be 1,256,693 fewer abortions every year.  Conversely, if it were equivalent to primarily Catholic New York, there would be 944,000 MORE.  If the marriage and divorce rates of the entire nation were equivalent to that of Catholic free Tennessee, there would be 832,000 MORE marriages and fewer divorces.  Conversely, if it were equivalent to a Catholic state like Massachusetts, there would be 416 thousand FEWER marriages and the divorce rate would INCREASE.  If the murder rate in the entire nation were equivalent to North Dakota in 1994, there would be only 560 murders annually, a reduction of 25,520 murders.  Conversely, if it were equivalent to a Catholic state like New York, there would be 6,090 MORE, and if it were equivalent to Catholic-influenced Washington, DC, there would be 176,900 MORE.

216 Point Gap in SAT Math Scores: Catholics 433, Protestants 649

 

If SAT scores for the entire nation were equivalent to Iowa’s score of 1,221, we’d score the highest in the world on both TIMSS and PISA.  But if they were equivalent to Rhode Island’s score of 993, we’d score between Israel and Africa.  If Catholics in the mostly Protestant states are not positively influenced by the higher education quality and solid moral values of the Protestants around them, and if Protestants in the mostly Catholic states are not adversely influenced by the lower education quality and abject moral depravity of the Catholics around them, then this 264 SAT point gap (93 in math, 97 in Reading, and 74 in writing) between Whites in Iowa which is 17% Catholic and whites in Rhode Island which is 60% Catholics, is FAR, FAR greater than we might ever imagine.

Ignoring for a moment the high percentage of jews in Rhode Island who skew the scores of Whites by a much larger margin than you could ever have conceived of, and ignoring that Rhode Island’s low high school graduation rate means that the lowest scoring one third of their students are not even included, simple algebra presents the following probable scenario:

X = SAT math score of Protestants

Y = SAT math score of Catholics

Rhode Island: .6Y + .4X = 519

Iowa: .17Y + .83X = 612

X = (519 - .6Y)/.4

.17Y + .83(519 - .6Y)/.4 = 612

.17Y + 1076.925 – 1.245Y = 612

1.075Y = 464.925

Y = 432.5

X = (519 - .6Y)/.4

X = (519 - .6 * 432.5)/.4

X = 648.8

So what appears to be only a 93 SAT math point gap between White Protestants and White Catholics is in reality a 216 point gap!

Whew!  The same applies to writing and reading skills in the same proportion.

The 100 SAT Math Point Gap Between Catholic and Protestant Boys Is Eighteen IQ Points

iqsatracesex

The 200 SAT Math Point Gap Between White and Black Boys Is 50 IQ Points

iqsatmathgraph

IQ of White Girls in North Dakota is 3 Points Higher Than White Boys in Massachusetts

Whites In Iowa Consistently Score 192 Points Higher Than Whites in Rhode Island

The reason Rhode Island scores 228 SAT points lower than Iowa can’t be completely explained by race (a higher percentage of “minorities”), because SAT scores for Whites in Iowa are 192 points higher than for “whites” in Rhode Island.  It can’t be due to lack of education spending, because Rhode Island spends three times MORE per student for education than Iowa.

Update July 23, 2010

 

The following tables were created without taking into consideration the argument that the only reason for the hundreds of points gaps in SAT scores between mostly Catholic states and mostly Protestant states is that the percent of students who take the test varies from 4% in the highest scoring states to 81% in the lowest scoring states.  While this is partially true, it is not the complete answer.  For example, eight states, Texas, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Maryland, Hawaii, Nevada, and West Virginia, all score within 10 points of each other (between 474 and 484), yet the percent who took the SAT test varied from 17% in West Virginia to 80% or more in Connecticut and Massachusetts.  And the spread in SAT scores of the 6 states where less than 6% take the test was from 523 to 592, or 69 points, almost a full standard deviation.

So there are significant differences between the academic skills of states which cannot be explained by different levels of test taking, or different percentages of students who take SAT.

Why would WHITES in Rhode Island, 70% of whose students take SAT, score only 519 in SAT math while WHITES in Connecticut, 81% of whose students take SAT, score 14 points higher, or 533.  And why would they score 13 points lower in SAT verbal (516 vs. 529)?  What else can explain it other than the difference in the way Catholic and Protestant schools teach their students—OR a difference in the quality of the students in the first place?

Ignoring for a moment that SAT scores DO correlate inversely state by state with the percent of students who take the test, the only way the 81% of Connecticut’s students who take the test could have scored 13-14 points higher than the 71% of the Rhode Island students who take the test is if Protestants score significantly higher than Catholics:

Math

Verbal

Protestants

559.0

554.0

Catholics

491.8

489.4

67.2

64.6

131.8

 

If we were to take into account that Whites in Rhode Island SHOULD have scored higher than Whites in Connecticut because only 70% of the students there take SAT, compared to 81% in Connecticut, this gap between White Catholics and White Protestants would have been even bigger than 132 SAT points, consistent with the huge gap between White Catholics and White Protestants illustrated at age 13 in NAEP math scores.  (286 for North Dakots vs. 275 for Rhode Island, a difference of 5 IQ points at the 8th grade level).

Voila!

Since SAT scores DO decrease by 1.8 points for each 1% increase in the percent of test takers in the state, Rhode Island SHOULD have scored 20 points HIGHER than Connecticut in both SAT verbal and math, rather than 13 and 14 points lower, which means the REAL gap between the states is 33 SAT verbal points and 34 SAT math points.  And the only way to explain this is if the SAT point gap between Catholics and Protestants is 328 points rather than “only” 132 points:

Math

Verbal

Protestants

618.0

611.0

Catholics

450.0

450.8

168.0

160.2

328.2

 

Each One Percent Decrease in the Percent of Catholics Increases SAT Math Scores Two Points

 

 

Each One Percent Decrease in the Percent of Catholics Increases SAT Verbal Scores Two Points

 

"BUT SAT Scores Decrease As a Higher Percent of Students Take the Test!" 

There are too many notable exceptions to the rule (that SAT scores increase strictly as a result of the decrease in the percent of high school students taking the test) to rely too heavily on this rule.  A simple correlation of the scores with the percent of test takers indicates that this is about 10, to a maximum of 20, percent of the reason for the wide variation in scores (240 SAT points, from 867 in DC to 1107 in North Dakota) from state to state.

The smallest percent of students taking the test, 4%, is in Utah and Mississippi, but their scores are nowhere close to similar--there's a difference just between these two states of 23 points in SAT math and 17 points in SAT verbal. More than twice as many students, 9%, take the test in Minnesota, but they score 39 points higher than Mississippi in math and 10 points higher in verbal. 12% of the students in Tennessee take the test, yet they score higher in both verbal and math than Mississippi.  Clearly there's something more at work here than simply a difference in the number of students taking the test.

The same notable exceptions hold true in the states where the highest percentage of students take the test.  Maine's low SAT math score of 469 and verbal score of 427 has been blamed on the fact that 68% of their students take the test.   But 80% of Massachusetts' students take the test and they score 8 and 3 points higher, respectively. And 70% of New Hampshire's students take the test and score 22 and 17 points higher respectively.  74% of New York's students take the test and, even though they DO score 8 points lower than Maine in verbal, they score 4 points higher in math.  Only 53% of DC's students take the test so they ought to score HIGHER than the above states, but they score LOWER than Maine, 24 in math and 15 in verbal.  Similarly, 51% of the students in Oregon take the test, but they score 54 points higher in math and 36 points higher in verbal than students in DC where a similar percentage of students take the test.

This is not to say that there is NO correlation between the percent of test takers in a state and their average SAT scores, just that it's a relatively minor factor relative to others (education spending, environment, race, health, tax rate, types of teachers, amount of central government control, attitude, genetics, and religion, to name a few).

Each 10% Decrease in Catholics Increases 8th Grade NAEP Math Scores TWO POINTS

 

Let’s not take the extreme examples like Rhode Island and Utah who are the most Catholic and least Catholic states, and on the opposite ends of the scale on abortion rates, but instead compare this data for Massachusetts which is 43% Catholic and has an abortion rate of 30.6 to that for Montana which is 12% Catholic and has an abortion rate about half of that, or 16.5.

 

IF religion is the ONLY factor, THEN we can determine just what it is about Catholic states that they have such a high abortion rate using some relatively simple algebra:

 

X = abortion rate of Catholics

 

Y = abortion rate of Protestants

 

.43X + .57Y = 30.6

 

.12X + .88Y = 16.5

 

Y =(30.6 - .43X)/.57

 

.12X + .88(30.6 - .43X)/.57 = 16.5

 

.12X + 47.24 - 0.6639X = 16.5

 

0.5439X = 30.74

 

X = 56.5

 

Y = (30.6 - .43X)/.57 =(30.6 - .43 * 56.5)/.57 = 11.0

 

What this tells us is that Catholics are almost SIX TIMES more likely than Protestants to have abortions, that if there were no Catholics in Montana they would have an abortion rate of 11.0 (one third less than it is today), and that if there were no Protestants in Massachusetts they would have an abortion rate of 56.5, almost double what it actually is.

 

And what this tells us is that Catholics would self-destruct if there weren't Protestants around to coddle, help, subsidize them and manage their affairs for them.  Such an abortion rate, coupled with their low pregnancy rate, would mean the end of their race in a hurry [hallelujah!].

 

But what exactly is it about this chosen race that they think we owe them so much? This hints that all of our social pathologies can be traced back to THEM rather than the jews, so I would say we owe them nothing but a sharp stick in the eye.

[Several of the above charts were based on false information that Illinois is one of the most Catholic states.  Once the correct information is entered, namely that only 29% of Illinois residents are Catholics, correlation reaches a much higher level in all aspects, highlighting the role of the Catholic Church in all manner of social pathology in this country]

Each 1% Increase in the Percent of Catholics Is a 40 Black Inmate Decrease in the Incarceration Rate per 100,000 Population

This author would not ordinarily anticipate that an increase in the incarceration rate would result in a decrease in crime, except for the fact that a decrease in the incarceration rates for both Whites and Blacks results in an INCREASE in crime rates from state to state.

 

Each 1% Decrease in Catholics Equals a $33 Decrease in Health Care Costs Per Capita

 

Each 10% Decrease in Catholics Equals 13 Fewer Cases of Cancer in Whites

Each 1% Decrease In Catholics Saves $174 Per Student per Year

 

Even the Graduate Record Exam (the GRE) shows that the 235 GRE point gap between Asian men, less than 5% of whom are Catholics, and black women who tend to be as superstitious as Catholics, is an IQ gap of 64 points

Murder Capitols of the World are ALL Catholic Cities

The following are highlights from the above murder statistics for 1994 showing vividly the difference between Catholic and non-Catholic states, cities, and countries.

 

 

 

 

 

Even the National Assessment of Education Progress, or NAEP, shows a huge 21 point gap in math scores between all the Catholic states and all the mostly Protestant states, a 12 IQ point gap as early as 13 years of age.

There is no other way to explain why 13 year olds in Montana which is only 12% Catholics would score 12 NAEP math points higher than 13 year olds in Rhode Island which is 59% Catholic, other than that Protestants score much higher than Catholics, namely 27 NAEP math points higher.  Obviously this difference is MUCH greater by the 12th grade, just as it is in TIMSS.

If we compare Rhode Island to North Dakota, then the difference between 8th Grade White Protestants and 8th Grade White Catholics must be more in the range of 32 points rather than only 27 points.  No wonder NAEP won’t release the 12th Grade scores for Whites on a state to state basis.

PISA Math Scores Decrease 4 Points For Each 1% Increase in Catholics

The Netherlands which is only 30% Catholic scored the highest (564), and Brazil which is 75% Catholic scored the lowest (378)

 

With PISA Math Scores Correlated With IQ, We See That IQ Increases 1 Point For Each 3% Decrease in Catholics (with the Netherlands which is only 30% Catholic having an IQ of 105, and Colombia which is 90% Catholic having the lowest IQ, at 85).

 

 

Mexico is 77% Catholic and their IAEP reading score of 410 suggests their IQ is 85 rather than the 87 Professor Lynn estimates, whereas New Zealand is 12% Catholic and their score of 520 suggests their IQ is 103 rather than the 100 estimate from Lynn.  This 18 IQ point gap reveals that each 3.6% decrease in Catholics equals a 1 point increase in IQ

 

Highest Scoring Whites and Lowest Scoring Blacks are in the District of Columbia

With Washington, DC, being the only “state” which has spent even more per student for “education” [which in reality is welfare dressed up in sheep’s clothing] than New York and New Jersey, it would be expected that blacks in DC, who constituted as much as 81% of the population as of late, would score higher than blacks elsewhere.  INSTEAD, they scored 5 points lower than blacks nationwide in NAEP Math, and even lower than blacks in Mozambique who spend almost NOTHING for education.
