Interestingly, the churches that are being most abandoned in droves are the ones who have been the most "relevant" and politically correct. The "pervert priest scandals" didn't involve pedophiles, as the term is commonly understood, but a group of gay priests who weren't screened, and some of whom were covered for. They have been systematically weeded out, and screened out before ordination. If you look at the statistics, that whole episode, while tragic, is finished. Only Cahtolic church haters and low information people keep talking about it as if it were an ongoing event..
