US Survey (letter)

The following results from a survey of Catholics by The Washington Post (October 2003) were noted during a program on EWTN earlier this year. They underline the fact that the views of Catholics as a whole on moral questions differ little from the rest of the population, e.g., percentages in favour of:

* Birth control (contraception): Catholics 88 percent; General 94 percent.

* Abortion (where there is no danger to the mother's health): Catholics 30 percent; General 39 percent.

* Pre-marital sex: Catholics 60 percent; General 67 percent.

* Homosexual relations: Catholics 48 percent; General 45 percent.
