This is an interview with Gary Bergeron, clergy abuse survivor, aired on VRT Belgian/Dutch TV.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

Less and less confidence in church

Update: Monday 28 May 2014, 07:33

Trust of Dutch people in churches is the lowest now for the last twenty years. Especially among Roman Catholics trust in the church between 2008 and 2010 declined strongly, says the Social and Cultural Planning Office.

The number of church members has declined from 75 percent of the population in 1958 to 30 percent in 2012. Even fewer people go to church. In the 1980’s 17 percent went to the church every week. Now that is still 10 per cent.
