Catholic Connection – September 2, 2015 – Hour 1

+  Intro and News

+  Teresa's Two Cents

  • Description: A majority of Americans who identify themselves as Catholic don't agree with the church on what is a sin. Key questions in a recent survey asked respondents about sex before marriage, the active homosexual lifestyle, so called same-sex marriage, contraception, and abortion. But according to this study half or more of American Catholics aren't following those teachings. The new survey by the Pew Research Center finds that 65-percent of Catholics in this country say living together is not a sin. That includes 50-percent of Catholics who regularly attend mass. Fifty percent say active homosexuality is not a sin, 75-percent say the same about contraception, and 70-percent say divorce is no sin. About one-third of Catholics surveyed say abortion is not a sin.
