Something Strange About France

An interesting quote in a discussion on the New Republic

"Today, according to an amazing recent survey, only 51 percent of the French population identify themselves as Catholic, and only half of those Catholics believe in God. The implications for French society have been significant."

You think? Why someone would be Catholic yet not believe in God? I know incense and cathedrals are cool, but if you don't believe in God why on earth would someone claim to be Catholic? Strange.
