Poll: Why Did You Leave the Catholic Church?

The percentage of Chicago’s population identifying as Catholic has fallen eight points since 1980, faster than the U.S. at large. If you’re ex-Catholic, why did you leave the Church?

In a comprehensive special report on the Catholic Church in the city, Chicago found that over the past 34 years there’s been a drastic eight point drop in the percentage of the city’s population identifying as Catholic, far steeper than both the U.S. and world at large (both of which saw a one point drop). Fourteen percent of the city now identifies as ex-Catholic.

But why did so many people leave the Church? Chicago put together the most common responses to that question below. If you’re ex-Catholic, tell us: What was the main reason you decided to leave the Church? Take the poll, then share your story in the comment section.
