Do you automatically assume that people with large families are Catholic?

No, not at all. Mostly when I think of large families I think of Jewish families, since that's what I know. But if I see a large family I won't assume they're Jewish. Lots of people have large families for different reasons.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 3/22/05 - 2:00:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, most are Amish or something along those lines.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 3/22/05 - 2:01:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
or Arab.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 3/24/05 - 1:24:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
no i assume they are stupid.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 3/24/05 - 1:25:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
or Mormon
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 3/24/05 - 1:30:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
Uh, no. I just think, hey, that's a big family!
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 3/24/05 - 7:20:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't since like all my family has like a big family. Or they did but they've been getting smaller.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 3/24/05 - 7:27:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not at all. But I do tend to assume they are religious.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 3/24/05 - 7:35:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
no not at all!!!
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 3/26/05 - 2:15:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, Mormon...seriously though, I don't really affiliate family size with religion. I just don't like Mormons. For those of you who have no sense of humor, the preceding was a joke (mostly).
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 3/26/05 - 2:19:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
No...if I think of their religion at all I think of Mormons...because all the Mormon families I know are huge, but most of the Catholic families I know are pretty normal sized.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 3/27/05 - 1:46:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
No... mormon

This whole thread comes from a comic I was watching on Comedy Central the other day - one part of his bit was "..whenever I tell people I have a large family, people ask 'Catholic?'...I should just say "6 kids, Catholic" just to clear the matter up..."

Of course the above was paraphrased...but that's why I asked.

I never knew that Mormons or Jewish or whatever had large families. In the midwest, most of the large families where I grew up were Catholic.

No I usually assume they are Mormon. There are A LOT of Mormons in my town and many of them have 6+ kids (not that that is a bad thing... my husband and I want 6 kids)... and I know two families here with 12 kids each.

Not realy my Grandparents (Baptist) had five boys.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 4/10/05 - 8:01:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
It's the "no contraception" thing, isn't it? :D
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 4/10/05 - 8:06:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. I can't believe so many people have said "No." I bet that if the question said "Mormon?" a bunch of people would be saying, "No, Catholic," you bunch of contrary ninnies.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 4/11/05 - 11:44:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
Tasdavil - Ha! I think that's mostly it, yes.

UncleLaughie - I have to admit, I was surprised.

17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 4/11/05 - 11:47:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. Just think they like kids.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 4/19/05 - 11:49:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, My boyfriends Catholic and his family is not big at all.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 4/19/05 - 11:50:47 AM EST (GMT-5)
No
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 4/19/05 - 11:57:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
no, usually i think there parents must be happy or in serious need of relationship advice
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 4/19/05 - 11:05:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe they just like kids.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 4/19/05 - 11:07:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
nope I know catholics with only 3 kids, but I know a LOT of menonites and on average I would say they have 5-7 kids
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 4/21/05 - 12:56:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. I assume they don't have a TV or any other form of amusement.
