It's true? Oh, good to know.

Got another of Leah Libresco’s new admirers over here telling us how great Catholicism is.  Today’s comes from D N.

If I had to venture a guess I’d say that even 1 million Catholics leaving the Church last year is a huge overestimate, however I cannot prove nor disprove it.

However, while Leah may be one girl entering the Church, she is hardly alone. Every year tens of thousands of people enter the Church of their own accord after studying history and theology and applying reason to their findings.

The Church may be overall getting smaller in size, but the size of a group doesn’t determine its rightness or wrongness. Catholicism is true.

Many people join the church after studying history and theology?  Then why do atheists know more about Catholicism on the whole than Catholics?

People convert after applying reason to their findings?  Why no peer-reviewed papers on the science of crackers becoming flesh?

And, most importantly, and especially after ending with “Catholicism is true,” why did you follow along with previous Catholic commenters here and not provide a single reason for anybody to believe that?

It must be a product of a church culture where people somehow think repeating “It’s true” over and over again with a few bullshit claims about science, reason, or history is enough to garner respect.  In church, that works.  In the real world it confines you to a low, low caste of people who have confused stubborn credulity for knowledge.
