THEIST_WATCH Msg : 66 Written : 08/09/94 06:18pm From : ROBIN MURRAY-O'HAIR Status : To : ALL Subj : Belief in England An update on religious belief in England. According to the Catholic Directory 1994, there were 4,526,873 Catholics in England and Wales in 1992. Of these, only 1,225,922 -- or about 28 percent -- attend mass. THEIST_WATCH Msg : 98 Written : 09/15/94 11:27pm From : ROBIN MURRAY-O'HAIR Status : RcA To : ALL Subj : Roman Catholic Statistics The new edition of the _Statistical Yearbook of the Church_, released in July 1994, reports that the Roman Catholic church continues to hold a steady claim to 18 percent of the population of the world. The five nations with the largest number of Roman Catholics are: Brazil . . . . . . 137.5 million Mexico . . . . . . .85 million Italy . . . . . . . 55.5 million United States . . . 55.1 million Philippines . . . . 53.8 million THEIST_WATCH Msg : 129 Written : 10/11/94 07:01pm From : ROBIN MURRAY-O'HAIR Status : To : ALL Subj : Women: It's Their Choice It's Their Choice The magazine _Mademoiselle_ this week reported on its "Love and Sex" poll just completed. Mostly, the results of a poll of a mere 1,831 women out of the 125 million in the nation were uninteresting -- -- except that a huge majority said they would marry a man of different religion. It is hard to say what that means when 85 percent would not marry a man who was 200 pounds or heavier, nor marry a man six inches shorter than they. Fifty-seven percent, however, would marry into a different race.
