ROME — The Catholic Church has experienced greater net losses due to religious conversion than any other religion in the U.S., the Pew Research Center reported Wednesday.
Fewer than a third of U.S. adult Catholics (30 percent) say Francis is doing an “excellent” or a “good” job addressing the sex abuse crisis, Pew revealed, a drop of 24 points since 2015 and 14 points from when the Research Center last asked the question in January 2018.
In its Wednesday report, Pew offered further data regarding the Catholic Church in the United States.
Hispanics, however, are growing as share of the adult population and data suggest that this share is likely to continue to grow, Pew found.
Pew said that recent elections have followed a similar “pattern” dividing the faithful according to religious practice, with churchgoers tending to be more politically conservative.
