    *shrug* - Personal experience I guess. Largest ones I know are Mormon - or rural. As in Iowa farm boy with 20 siblings.
    I don't think "The Waltons" were Catholic, but I knew rural families like that.

    I think there's more culture associated with Catholic and family size, because France is largely Catholic but I don't know of large French families, but I do know of Italian families being large - BUT - my Roman history I took in college is that THAT has been that way for thousands of years.

    I know people want to believe it's because of Catholicism and birth control, but honestly modern birth control is a recent thing historically, and large families go back centuries.
    Prior to modern times, Asian and Indian families were large, and they're not known for being Catholic.

    Granted, he's not supposed to be a politician.

    The pope needs to stick with religion. Something he is alleged to know.

    My dot's in-laws are the most devout Catholics I have ever known. They cannot support the current Pope's opinions and comments. It makes them sad. And, yes, as said above, the current Pope is way too political.

    They have attended and volunteered at the Basilica for the last 40 years. They met the Pope when he was here. They are in their late 70's, and are amazing, and caring people.

    I wish the Pope would mind his own damn business and stay out of our politics. He's not even an American.

    It's always tres chic to bash the U.S. while in Europe. I wonder how popular he'd be if he was as critical of say - Italy. Or Venezuela. Or Muslims.

    I sneer so hard at Europeans that I don't even notice them sneering at me. If they sniff about our "culture", I'll just ask them how that hot water and reliable internet access is going for them. I'll tell them to go eat a Royale with Cheese and piss off. As you suggested, they get sniffy about the damndest things, which is probably why we're a super power and they're not.

    He's background noise.

    I don't even know of any Catholics that give a #### about his opinions anymore.
