Hispanics: 'We'd Rather Be Protestants'
A growing number of U.S. Hispanics are turning away from the Roman Catholic religion of their youth and now identify as Protestant or unaffiliated with any church, according to a survey released on Wednesday.

Catholics represented 55 percent of U.S. Hispanics in 2013, a drop from 67 percent in 2010, the Pew Research Center survey found. About 16 percent of Hispanics are evangelical Protestants, up from 12 percent three years earlier, and 18 percent are unaffiliated, up from 10 percent.

Three-quarters of those interviewed said they were raised Catholic. More than half of those who left their childhood faith said they "gradually drifted away," while 31 percent said they found a congregation that helps its members more. ...

Ah, Chris, we can't get better testimony than from someone who has walked in the Romish shoes but John Y., an authority better than your brother would say, Come Out Of The Catholic Church

By the way the invasion from South of the border, the majority is anything but Christian. Popular Folk Catholics

I've learned not to take anything anyone says, no matter who they are, as gospel. I'll listen intently, but the Bible, read in context, is our final authority...not the words and opinions of mere man. We can't take a verse or two out of God's Word and use them to define us or our positions in Him while not considering and living to the best of our ability, the rest of His Word. I don't think we can say we are saved while skipping everything else thinking and accepting we will just arrive without rewards because we believed, but chose to just leave it at that as we lived our lives.

Chris, oh, so true about experiential (Charismatic) religion, Theology of Experience vs. Scripture. I'm glad you brought up that point.
My Non Denominational brother accepts that I am a Christian and saved as I embraced Jesus as Savior and I trust in Jesus alone for salvation regardless if I attend the Catholic Church.

Guatemala has had a huge change in this as well. I was just there and there were street preachers in many areas of the downtown of Xela, and many protestant churches. Of course there is the atheist con artist fake christian tv preachers on tv as well but they are everywhere running their atheist scams like Benny Hinn from the usa to africa. If you need to disappear go to xela Guatemala.

As opposed to all hispanics? I am confused why you wouldn't want them to be saved? Actually no I am not, this isn't a club they are bouncing in and out of, they may be passing fro death to life, darkness to light, from blaspheming God to enjoying Him and worshipping Him, from explusion and damnation to adoption.

This is how the catholic church wins. In mexico and nicaraugua (i have been to both) they are swimming in superstition and animism, they are drowning in it and are so hard to reach. Thank God for taking some of these. Fools who still look for apostolic miracles (healings and tongues) miss and deny the power of God in the miracle of salvation! The strong arm of God and His power are declared in the salvation of men

Having been Charismatic, I understand the draw of "experience" and the livliness, but it's so easy to get sucked so far into these things that simple, concise doctrine becomes clouded. I compare this to a drug high that is always being chased and to come back down means to go through serious withdrawels; spiritual withdrawels, in this case. Anyone who gets wrapped up in all that they have to offer, or those who never knew anything else find it very difficult to set those things aside which they feel brought them so close to God. No easy thing.
