religion in Korea and the world

The Korea Times has an article about the religious affiliation of Korean presidents.  It is interesting how many are/were Christian in this traditionally Buddhist country.

I am interested to read the distinction between Christians and Catholics.

According to a 2005 survey, Buddhists make up 22.8 percent of the population, followed by Christianity with 18.3 percent and Catholicism with 10.9 percent.


Abroad, those catholics may be trying to hide under the general title of Christian after the Pope described “the rape of little boys by priests” as “petty gossip“.  I guess Kim Kim-tae petty gossiped that girl to death.


These two events don’t really fit together.  I just had to fit my disgust with the Catholic church in somewhere.
