Catholic population grew faster than world population

  1. I think you mean to say, the number of children born to parents who are registered catholic grew faster than the world population.

    Something else I would like to point out is; a baby cannot be catholic. A baby can be born to a catholic family and christened, but until a person understands all the church stands for and what they are accepting my calling themselves catholic, they aren't truly catholic.

    It's like calling a new born baby a republican.

    Also, where are you getting your data for the growth of the human population? The article you listed mentions nothing about data on world population growth.
