The article offers observations on the decreasing power of the Catholic Church in Italy. In this context the article focuses on Church defeat on the abortion law and divorce referendum. The defeat of the Church is mainly because of the growth of liberalism in Italy. The article also looks at the views of the Italian journalists on the Catholic Church in the country, with emphasis on the opinion of Radical Journalist Enzo Forcella. The Italian society is finally adopting secularism as a way to live.
