Actually, if you look at statistics, the net gain in Catholics is entirely driven by (nonwhite) immigration. The percentage of white Catholics is shrinking.

As an ex-Catholic may I remind you, however, that there is no such thing as the "White Catholic" Church. This is why the clergy are cheering the mass waves of immigration to fill and refill the churches.

“As an ex-Catholic may I remind you, however, that there is no such thing as the “White Catholic” Church”

1. There is no such thing as an “ex-Catholic”. If you are practicing the faith of your baptism you are a lapsed Catholic.

2. Of course there is no such thing as the White Catholic Church, but statistics are kept, and white Catholics voted for Romney with 59% of the vote. Obama carried the hispanics, so their percentage pushed Obama to 52% of the so-called “Catholic vote”. Catholics vote exactly like any other faith group. Devout Catholics vote conservative, the non-church going crowd vote for the man that will promise free handouts.

All true of course, immigration is everything to the left.

By the way, as far as you no longer being a Catholic, you aren't to pollsters in voting data, but the Vatican still counts you as a member.

Judging by threads that mention how the Catholic vote is a democrat block, you can become non-catholic by voting democrat, or on some like this one, not being white, but you still get counted as being Catholic for 'boosting the count' purposes.
