US bishops’ advisory group says communion should not be partisan | RNZ News

Some 55 percent of US Catholics believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases, compared to 59 percent of the general population, according to a Pew Research survey conducted in April.

Sadd told bishops that some members of the advisory council expressed doubt that the document would serve to heal existing rifts in the church.

Nearly 20 percent of Catholics have left the church in the past two decades, according to a Gallup poll in March, as sexual abuse scandals involving predatory priests have emerged and members disagreed on social issues.
