I imagine that these kinds of equivocations are how the Catholic Church decides on the “number of adherents” that they claim. Or any religion, really.
I'm a gay nontheist.
I was baptized and confirmed Catholic. 12 years of Catholic education. Years of writing substantial checks to my local parish.
I'm pretty sure I'm still on their records as a Catholic. I can tell you for a fact, there are Christians who gave up on the Trinity decades ago. Christians who stopped having Faith in Jesus about the same time we stopped believing in Santa Claus.
I don't think there are nearly as many Christians out there as there are people who check the box "Christian" when surveyed.
