What a massive catastrophic failure of catechesis.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Wichita, Kansas, has **free** tuition for its Catholic youth. How do they pay for it? Answer: All Catholic parishioners are asked to tithe.

So??...I wonder?

Of the tithing paying Catholics in Wichita, and their kids graduating from their Catholic schools, I wonder how many support Democrats who promote abortion, push partial birth abortion, call for sex education in government schools , distribute birth control to minors, condone sex out of marriage, oppose school vouchers and tax credits, and legislate for homosexual marriage????

( Just wondering?)

Personally, I believe most of these polls reflex the opinions of Catholics who graduated from government schools and are now merely CINOs.

The statistics for evangelical youth (from strong and active Christian families) who graduate from government school, remaining faithful in their faith is ABYSMAL. Some studies show more than 88% leave their faith. Why would be any different for Catholic kids?

Also...Worse, studies show that youth graduating from government schools, who **claim** to be Christian hold beliefs that disqualify them from being Christian. Why would Catholic Christian youth have a better outcome?

If you want your kid to be Catholic, **homeschool** them!!!!
This is your **best** bet for keeping them active in the faith.... or... ( second best) get them into a Catholic school that teaches Catholicism and **not** Marxist Liberation Theology!

You are right! However, that is not always possible - it wasn't possible for me as I had to work to support my family. Furthermore, some states are now catching on to this and legislatively banning homeschooling. I believe CA is the first one to do this. I have pinged a CA freeper for more information.
