Only 53% of Belgians describe themselves as Catholics, down from over 90% in the middle of the last century. The true number is actually much lower if you take into account that most people only say that because they were spoon fed the lie that they were raised with 'Christian values', which in their eyes makes them at least cultural Christians / Catholics.

Yeah I had several discussions with (older) people, and they can't tell the difference between a catholic and a "cultural catholic". Almost all of them are the latter, but they've been indocrinated into believing they're "the real deal".

It doesn't affect them in their daily life though.
