Highest percentage of Catholics per state population.

 

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.

Each 1% Decrease in Catholics Decreases Motor Vehicle Theft Per 100k Pop By Six Vehicles

Each 1% Decrease in Catholics Decreases Murders per 100K Population By One

 

Rape is the Only Crime Where Catholic States Have Achieved “Gender Equality” With Protestant States

Each One Percent Decrease in Catholics Increases Marriages per 1K Population by 7%

In Spite of the Putative Catholic Prohibition of Divorce, Mostly Catholic States Have Higher Divorce Rates than Mostly Protestant States

 

Each 10% Decrease in Catholics Decreases Abortions Per One Thousand Child Bearing Women By Four

America Sodomized by Catholic Church

Gay marriage backed in Catholic states

E-mail|Link|Comments (84) Posted by Michael Paulson July 29, 2009 03:49 PM

Mark Silk at Trinity College makes an interesting, if counterintuitive, observation: the more Catholic a state's population, the more likely its residents are to support same-sex marriage. From Mark's blog, Spiritual Politics:

"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."

It's not entirely clear to me what this means. Mark takes a dig at the Catholic hierarchy, saying, "Way to go, bishops!", but over at USA Today's Faith & Reason blog, Cathy Lynn Grossman points out that, "The bishops have campaigned long, loudly and clearly against same-sex marriage but the Catholic Church also offers a pervasive message of social justice, an umbrella many liberal Catholics stand under when they argue for marriage equality or life issues such as abortion, contraception and end-of-life decisions." There's much for social scientists to mull over here -- I suspect that the states that rate high in support for same-sex marriage also have high levels of support for other liberal causes, and whether that is because of, or in spite of, the religious makeup of the population strikes me as an unanswered question. Also, here in New England, which is a region with high Catholic population, the legalization of same-sex marriage in Massachusetts clearly had an impact on views in neighboring states, so it's possible that for some states the religious makeup of the population is less important than proximity to Massachusetts. Still, food for thought.
