For whatever reason -- perhaps because ChristianityIsCatholic -- there seems to be no common Protestant equivalent to this trope, even though people paying lip-service to their family or culture's religion is as old as religion itself. One possible explanation for this is that Catholicism, much more than Protestantism, is considered by some to be a part of one's ethnic and cultural identity in addition to being a religion, especially for those whose national heritage is tied to the Church (such as people of Irish, Italian, Polish, or Hispanic descent). InformedJudaism pretty much works this way, as well. Another possibility is that compared to Protestantism, the Catholic Church places a somewhat stronger emphasis on iconography and ritual; this can then become a rich source of material for former Catholic authors who may [[TheLawOfConservationOfDetail no longer remember the subtler aspects of Catholicism or who also may require an easy cue for their non-Catholic audiences to recognize]]. The third probable answer is the fact that it used to be rather difficult to formally abandon membership in the Catholic Church, and since 2010 it's impossible, which means that the Church still considers practically all lapsed Catholics as members of its flock whether they like it or not.

* Patrick Stump, lead singer of [[Music/FallOutBoy Fall Out Boy]]. He describes himself as [[https://twitter.com/patrickstump/status/430689374754197504?lang=en "somewhere between a post-Catholic and a Taoist"]]. Although his mother left the religion, he says "it still has an influence".

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Davos is either agnostic or atheistic, but still instinctively invokes the Seven when seeing something as shocking as Melisandre getting heavily pregnant within days and giving birth to a shadow monster.

* A few people from RoosterTeeth cite themselves as this, though most notably Burnie Burns and Michael Jones. The former's dad was a priest at one point before retiring, and while Burnie doesn't seem much of a believer now he admits he would struggle to get rid of a Bible. The latter was raised Catholic by his parents and has said that he doesn't really follow it in adult life.

* Creator/DenisLeary goes so far as to found the Lapsed Catholic Church at the end of his second album, ''Lock'N'Load''. He also admits that he couldn't remember the Hail Mary prayer during a scene when his character in ''RescueMe'' has to recite it, but can name the starting lineup of the 1967 Red Sox off the top of his head.
