Filipino believe …?

Hello.

.

The Japanese have generally no religion, or practice Shintoism or Buddhism. I am a member of no religion too. However, there are many people who believe a religion.

This is a church in Philippines.

Today, I would like to talk about religion in the Philippines.

The Philippines proudly boasts to be the only Christian nation in Asia. More than 86 percent of the population is Roman Catholic, 6 percent belong to various nationalized Christian cults, and another 2 percent belong to well over 100 Protestant denominations.

.

When I knew this fact, I was surprised. I thought that Asian countries’ people believe Buddhism.

Since the Spaniards came in the 1500s, religion in the Philippines became more homogenous, and Catholicism became the main religion in most regions, except in the South, where most of the leaders managed to escape conversion and retain their Islamic faith.
