Look out Southern Baptists, here we come! As Jay Anderson has reported at his excellent blog Pro Ecclesia*Pro Familia*Pro Civitate, Roman Catholicism is flourishing in the Southern United States. As a little Protestant kid growing up in suburban Atlanta, I ran into very few Catholics. Today, however, the Catholic Church is the 3rd largest church in the metro Atlanta area, and, as Jay's article notes, young Southern Catholics tend to be especially devoted to the faith and the Church. As a local car (and pickup truck) dealer says: "We're number 3, gonna be number 1 real soon!"
