* In "Film/SisterAct" Delores' first scene is her making a joke about the Apostles and the Beatles, and then being told my a nun she'll never succeed. Cue a ***-eating grin, and a flash forward to Whoopi Goldberg, a grown up Delores, who's a lounge singer. Of course, by the end of the film, Maggie Smith saves her soul.

* [[MartinSheen President Bartlet]] on ''Series/TheWestWing''. After a brutal PlayerPunch when a beloved character dies he goes to church to curse out God ''in untranslated Latin for three whole minutes''. And it was glorious.

* Edmund Mc Millen, the creator of ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'', was raised around Catholics and once compared the faith to [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons Dungeons and Dragons]]. He cites Catholicism's morbid and violent imagery as influential on Isaac's development. In the game, there are many homages to Catholic teaching, such as the Seven Deadly Sins Isaac must defeat, the Rosary, the Bible, and even the Wafer.

* This is an extremely common practice in Ireland, and presumably in other majority-Catholic countries as well. Catholicism is a huge part of the national psyche, whether one believes in it or not. Most schools in the country have a Catholic ethos, with most of the remainder having some religious affiliation.

Yet this trope is by no means unique to Catholicism. There are Eastern Orthodox, Lutheran, LDS, Jehovah's Witness, Jewish, and even Pentecostal and Baptist equivalents of this trope.

Yet this trope is by no means unique to Catholicism. There are Eastern Orthodox, Lutheran, LDS, Jehovah's Witness, Jewish, and even Pentecostal and Baptist equivalents of this trope. In much of Northern Europe, this applies to Finns, Swedes, and Danes who are registered as members of the national Lutheran Church, even though many rarely attend.



** The Dutch provinces of Limburg and North Branbant are distinctly Catholic, and have traditions like Carnival and lighting votive candles, which stands in contrast to most of the culturally Protestant Netherlands. Despite this, very few Dutch Catholics actually ''believe'' their religion.



* Creator/AndyWarhol is a particularly bizarre case, somewhere between a subversion and an outright inversion. Warhol was absolutely ''not'' your typical image of a "proper" Catholic (it's ''[[TheGadfly Andy]] [[MadArtist Warhol]]''), but not only was he raised Catholic (in the oft-neglected Byzantine Rite Ruthenian Catholic Church), he was devout. So devout, he made an entire collection of paintings on religious subject that he never released, as he considered them works of personal devotion. So devout, he attended Mass every week at a Latin Rite church, and even converted a few people to Catholicism. So devout, he agonized about crossing himself the "wrong" way (Eastern Catholics cross themselves like the Orthodox) in the Latin Rite church he attended. So devout, he probably remained a virgin his whole life. So devout, one of his proudest achievements in life was paying for his nephew's studies to become a priest. So devout, in fact, that despite his great and demonstrable devotion he took communion hardly ever if at all, because he apparently didn't believe himself worthy. And yet, he was Andy Warhol, iconoclastic artist and owner-operator of the Factory--the biggest den of sin in New York City in its day.

He is often cited as a great example of a gay Catholic by both secular LGBT rights groups and practicing Catholics.

* ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}, aka Matt Murdock, remains a devout Catholic despite (or maybe even because of) his mother having left him and his father when he was an infant to become a nun.

* ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}, aka Matt Murdock, remains a devout Catholic despite (or maybe even because of) his mother having left him and his father when he was an infant to become a nun. The comics themselves have a lot of Catholic themes like guilt, suffering as a path to redemption, and atonement through blood. Lots and lots of blood.
