PRINCETON, N.J. - Americans' confidence in "Church and organized religion" has been on the decline since 1973 and Catholics' confidence in that institution remains lower than that of Protestants, according to the results of a new Gallup survey.

Forty-six per cent of Catholics express "a great deal or quite a lot of confidence" in the Church and organized religion, compared to 56 per cent of Protestants.
