Is Poland split into two religions: catholicism and non-believers?

can somebody describe to me the Polish religions intact in Poland at the moment.
Some people have said the country is split into 2, catholicism and non believers.
If this is true, can somebody post a picture or something showing which sides which, or maybe paste an article (in english) about it?
Thanks xD

Wow I bet a person that has the skill to post in an internet forum never thought of Google.

Why in the world would you go to a Polish Forum to ask about Polish Religion? That is just silly.

Sure Poland is mostly Catholic...at least in label. I have not however seen much in the way of discrimination toward those who don't go to mass.

it may depend on what radio channel you're listening to.. ;-)

It's not split. It's Catholic. Poland I mean. Agnostics comprise minority.. I guess, still. But lots of Catholics are non-practicing ones, and from among those, some have reasons for that, some are just lazy. It would be hard to call the others Catholics really, so.. who knows.. :-)

I happen to know that there is also an Orthodox church in Jelenia Gora in the South West of Poland, although it is still overwhelmingly Catholic. I've also heard of other religious minorities in Poland, including Jews, Muslims (although mainly immigrants I think), and even a few Satanists apparently.

I agree, many of them claim they are catholic, but their behaviour is ridiculous and denies their faith... mass is the form of showing "how good person i am"... it's hard to determine the number of real worshippers

It's hard for laypeople to spot. How would they know? Besides, can you tell a Protestant church apart from a Catholic one? ;)

And your point, Seanus, is to merge all the threads on religion you have so aptly dug up today into one thread?
Seanus 15 | 19,706

I think there needs to be a move in that direction, yes. I'm fed up with people not using the search facility.

I mean, one check of the above on wikipedia would give all the answers. How do people really know otherwise? Do they walk round cities asking everyone? Of course not! Is there a need to know? Likely not! The point is to avoid religious faux-pas.

non-practicing ones

- in Catholicism it's "either you're with us or against" - there is no place for individual thinking and questioning. And similarly if you don't go to church every Sunday you commit sins (the additional Church 5 commandaments - I guess 10 from the God was not enough and they deicided to add 5 more, just to be sure).

- well one of the 5 Church commandaments (basically designed to keep you loyal and pay money) is that every Catholic is obliged to support the Church. Support method preffered are donations;)

their behaviour is ridiculous and denies their faith... mass is the form of showing "how good person i am"... it's hard to determine the number of real worshippers

- a very large number of people attend masses because they are used to. I have seen it, I have heard it too. Now, that's the fundament for a deep understanding of your faith;)

Olaf, that's the same as Islam and that's the worrying aspect. These religions, therefore, are dangerous and are an affront to intelligent societies. They cheapen the whole notion of free thinking.

Donations? LOL. What an utter disgrace! I just laughed in the face of the guy that put the money container out to me. Let these evil people that profit from the world put their hands in their pockets. They are in a position to give.

The truth, as always, is somewhere in the middle.

Thats not true, in fact its a damn lie, the RC church has indeed questioned many things and Im sure there are plenty of casual (read = go at xmas and easter) church goers in Poland, I know a couple.

Olaf, that's the same as Islam and that's the worrying aspect

You cant even compare the two! Its a bloody insult!

Donations? LOL. What an utter disgrace!

People pay more a year for a season ticket to go and watch some over paid idots run round a pitch..whats wrong with someone giving a small donation every Sunday, most Catholics will go to church about 3 times a week, not bad value for money (people dont give £30/£40 per week more like £2 - £5 - plus price of candles) if you ask me.

And similarly if you don't go to church every Sunday you commit sins (the additional Church 5 commandaments

?

RC church has indeed

- correct me if I am wrong, but there is the one and only right doctrine of what the pope says. All other opinions are heresy/blasphemy. That's the RC Church approach. Not so progressive and evolving or open to debate.

Its a bloody insult!

- please elaborate so I can feed on this while alowing myself for a fleshy reply.

- I wouldn't pay a dime on that either!

Amathyst, I said that's the same as Islam, not that Catholicism is. They share the commonality of Us Vs Them that Olaf alluded to. There isn't much room to maneuver.

Do you see where that money goes, Am? On marble floors and Alfa Romeos. When I go to a footie match, I watch it and enjoy it. I see where my money goes.

The Church was involved in the investigation of the Shroud of Turin, they were also involved in the investigation of the authenticity of the dead sea scrolls - There are many schollars in the RC Church - dont think for one moment all priests are uneducated idiots!

Each to their own.

Your choice.
