One in 10 Pinoys Mulls Leaving Catholic Church

Social Weather Stations' February survey has found that 9.2 percent, or nearly one out of every 10 Catholics who are registered voters, "sometimes think of leaving the Church," reports GMA News. Though SWS has no past data, which would show a trend of Filipino Catholics renouncing their religion, it stated that its recent survey gave credence to the assertion of Jesuit priest and university president Fr. Joel Tabora SJ that "people have been leaving the Catholic Church" partly as a result of "theological bullying."
