I saw this story yesterday while searching different blogs:

U.S. religious knowledge survey

Especially troubling is this bit about half way down:

More than four-in-ten Catholics in the United States (45%) do not know that their church teaches that the bread and wine used in Communion do not merely symbolize but actually become the body and blood of Christ.

There could be many reasons for this, none of which I'm going to speculate on in this post. We must continue to push for better religious education and take it upon ourselves to continue our own education. To know God is to love God.
