Devout What?

Since the term "devout Catholic" is all but devoid of any real meaning anymore thanks to the Herd of Independent Thinkers in the mainstream media, perhaps we would do well to give over the term entirely to ironic usage.

E.g., "John Doe, a devout Catholic, was convicted on nine charges of embezzlement in federal court yesterday."

Or, "Jane Doe, a devout Catholic, was caught on camera desecrating a statue of the Virgin Mary last night."
