    BEAUMONT, Texas (BP) -- As Hispanic populations across the United States, many of which are traditionally Catholic, continue to increase, so do opportunities for Southern Baptist churches to address the spiritual questions of current and former Catholics.

    Hispanics made up 38.1 percent of the population of Texas in 2011, the U.S. Census reports. This reflects a nearly 10 percent increase since 2006, when Hispanics accounted for 35.7 percent of all Texans, according to the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts' office.

    The Southern Baptists of Texas Convention has 193 cooperating churches listing Spanish as their primary or secondary language. Many of their members are former Catholics. Churches in southeast Texas such as Beaumont's Calvary Baptist also attract people from French Catholic traditions, much like their neighbors in Louisiana a few miles east.

    How, then, can a Baptist church, with sensitivity and wisdom, integrate former Catholics who have converted to evangelical faith?

    Yea but....... Now why would a Hispanic Catholic want to do that? They put themselves in a vulnerable position with most Hispanics in their community.
