i wasn't saying that all german ancestry chicagolanders are catholic (there are obviously shit-tons of lutherans too), i was only going against your earlier implicaiton that nearly all white catholics in chicagoland are of either irish, italian, or polish heritage.

yes, those three make up the lion's share, no doubt, but german catholics are a signinficant block too.
