Catholics in the Netherlands are much more modern than the church. According to a study by I&O Research, Catholics in the Netherlands are much more modern than the church itself. Only 14 percent of respondents in the survey think that church leadership is keeping up with the times.
Unlike the church, 75 percent of Catholics in the Netherlands view female priests and same-sex marriage favorably. Euthanasia, on the other hand, was welcomed by 65 percent, with more than half of respondents saying the Catholic Church should lift the ban on abortion.
Although these rates show that the views do not match with the church, the rate of those who give the answer “I have no idea” is also quite high. Only 8 percent of respondents said they would leave the church because of their conflicting views with the church.
25 percent of church leavers said the conservative views of the church were the reason they left; sexual abuse was also stated as one of the reasons for leaving. However, it was stated that the main reason for the departures was disbelief.
