Given that babies in that cult get labelled from birth, the figure seems remarkably low.

It implies that 500 couples only had 61 babies in that five year period.

Maybe they've started wearing condoms.

Consider
I can't find the 2011 figures, and our mate hasn't given us a link. But between 1971 and 2001, the number calling themselves catholic, as a percentage of the population, didn't change.

I can also assure you that Catholicism is very much "on the nose" here in Australia. There is a current royal commission into child sexual abuse, our only cardinal is considered a fossil and a fool. The church is importing priests from overseas because of a lack of interest in the job from locals.

No need to assure me.

I did not meet one single catholic when I lived there.

I met one from another christian cult... someone I worked with and I even went to her church (for a laugh) but only once to be polite and 'cause it's good to have one's disbelief tested occasionally.

One day, I recall that I was talking about The God Delusion with some other colleagues (everyone else was atheist with maybe one or two dabbling with 'spirituality') and she said that her vicar/priest/pastor/whatever had told her it was not worth reading.
We asked her why she would not read it for herself and she declared that she trusted his judgement.

Too stunned to even facepalm when that happens.

Ah well, sheep deserve to be fleeced maybe.

I remember watching the Dawkins vs Pell debate (I use the word 'debate' in its loosest sense). The Pell-sheep in the audience were surprisingly vocal.
I realise now that that was possibly all of the Aussie catholics gathered in one room.

Yes

Probably why you have a anime girl has an avatar? lol

Arguing with a Christian is a lot like playing chess with a pigeon. You can be the greatest player in the world, yet the pigeon will knock over all the pieces, shit on the board and strut away triumphantly.

Whoa, LH! Maybe he was riffing on "alter boy". (Should be altar boy. You weren't altered, were you?)

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Not a thing...why do you ask? Its easy to make jokes about others, but can you take one?

I dunno about being "altered" but I sure was "alerted" from then on out.

*sigh* Sometimes sarcasm is lost within the text. I was being sarcastic.
