English survey on DVC - SAD!

Several blogs have referred to a survey in England about the DVc. Here is Amy Wellborn's post: open book: It's just fiction....

It is diffucult to convey to Americans just how bad things are here in blighty. It is no surprise at all to me that two thirds of English people who have read the DVC think that our Blessed Lord fathered a child by Saint Mary Magdalene. We have the BBC constantly pouring scorn on religion in general and the Catholic Church in particular. "Values clarification" is considered a good way to educate children in school in morality. Even in Catholic schools, many teachers think that their students need to hear "the other side". The fact is that the one "point of view" they never hear presented coherently and with conviction is the teaching of the Catholic Church.

The DVC has had, and will continue to have a major effect in England. Yes, we must treat it as an "opportunity" but let's not pretend it is anything but negative in its impact.
