Following Vatican II, the church dropped Latin and instituted "reforms", church attendance fell through the floor. Same for the COE, and other denominations. Like Reform Judaism, when religious leaders and institutions offer nothing but current politically correct fads, people loose interest. In the US, where Reform is predominate, the intermarriage rate is something like 70+% in many communities. If you don't want your kids to marry other Jews, then adopting Reform Judaism is the way to go. Frankly, I wonder if that is not the real motivation. Reform was started in Germany and flourishes in America. That is not a coincidence.
