  1. In the popular / atheist media “devout” means “attends church at least sometimes” and “asserts belief in at least some pieces of doctrine”.

    I’ve come across more articles in the Boston Globe than I can shake a stick at saying things like “…the pro-abortion, pro-women-priests, anti-Vatican activist so-and-so is a devout Catholic who just wants his/her opinions … blah blah blah…”
