I've been to the Mary, Queen of the Universe Shrine in Orlando. Besides the fact that it had tourists from all over the country, it still seemed like a traditional church for the most part, with traditional music.

O yeah, I forgot. My fault. And those numbers are from the metro areas, not the cities themselves.

McCain won the Catholic vote in Louisiana by a wide margin.
McCain won the evangelical vote\ white vote also by wide margins; not something for Catholics to be proud of.

Noticed that the top 10 Catholic states are all Democratic-majority.

In Germany today there are as many Catholics as there are Lutherans.

Most German immigrants were Protestants, with Lutheranism by far the most denomination; perhaps a third of German immigrants were Catholics, and around 250,000 were Jewish.

A third is a significant number and may be the largest denomination among German-Americans since Protestant Germans are split many ways. And just look at all the big German cities in the US, Catholics are usually the largest religious group in those cities.

Boston, St. Louis, Chicago, and Cleveland are all pretty heavily Catholic. New Orleans is VERY Catholic.

The Diocese of Atlanta is now the Archdiocese of Atlanta.
That is true. I didn' notice the date on it, it is probably pretty inaccurate now.
