Catholics shows disagreement on abortion, marriage, contraception

A worldwide poll of self-described Catholics shows significant disagreement with Catholic doctrine among many Church members, reports LifeSiteNews.

In a poll commissioned by the Spanish television station Univision, majorities of 12,038 Catholics in 12 countries expressed beliefs against Catholic doctrine on issues like abortion, same-sex “marriage,” and contraceptive use. The Church opposes all three.

According to the poll, while Pope Francis received 87 percent approval, 57 percent of Catholics thought abortion should be legal “in some cases,” with nine percent declaring support any time. Seventy-eight percent of respondents support contraception use, 66 percent back same-sex “marriage,” and 51 percent believe women should be priests.

Thirty-eight percent of respondents believe divorce and remarriage outside of the Church means a person is living in sin, and 47 percent believe priests should be allowed to marry.

The poll was taken in nine languages and on five continents. Univision says the 12 countries in which those polled live “represent 61% of the world’s Catholic population.”

The nations in which poll respondents live are: Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Congo, Colombia, Spain, France, Italy, the Philippines, Poland, Uganda, and the United States of America. The African nations and the Philippines were most supportive of Catholic teachings, while the U.S. and European nations were more often in disagreement.

Catholic blogger Matt Walsh told LifeSiteNews.com that he “[has] to laugh when modern leftwing Americans criticize the Church for being 'obsolete,' and start giving out advice on how to remain 'relevant.' Invariably, they are part of some institution - media, Hollywood, government - that's been around for a fraction of the time that the Church has existed.”
