"With young people leaving the Church in droves,"

I'm pretty sure exactly the opposite is happening.

I thought what I wrote was common knowledge, (although I wish you were right).

maybe if you hunt around Fr. George Rutler's site you can find his recent citations to the contrary. I'd post it but it requires registration, etc. and I'm too busy to go digging up the citation -- point is, I read it, so I'm OK with it. Anyway, church membership is up worldwide over a decade ago. Up by more than fractional percentage points. JPII generation, World Youth Day, young vocations, etc. etc.

Maybe we're talking about different "churches."
