Check out this video from UPI. In it they talk about increased interest in Catholicism, conversions, and Mass attendance.
They characterize it as a recovery from the sex abuse scandal which is probably not entirely inaccurate. They also try to provide reasons other than spiritual for the interest, that while probably not telling the whole story, certainly contribute. In it the reporter confuses confirmations with conversions and for my part I would have preferred something more than anecdotal evidence of an uptick, but I will take what I can get.
I find it interesting in that it notices a trend toward religion and does not ridicule it. Watch it and let me know your thoughts.
