Update: Why Catholics leave the Church

I recently posted on a survey taken of those who have left the Catholic Church.

Here's a bit of an update on that story (H/T to CJ) with a prioritization of reasons given by those who have left. I found the list helpful and informative, the cherry-picking of individual quotes from respondents less so.

  1. Hmmm, perhaps these show why your stewardship of our parish has been so successful. I see little evidence of these reasons in the way you try to lead us closer to God.

  2. Stewardship is not something easily guaged, Ken. What some see as the pastor's wisdom, others see as his folly. And many who might think my stewardship very fine have left the parish and the Church nonetheless because of other and larger concerns on their part. But your kind words are nonetheless appreciated.
