5%other

Spiritual Climate:
Catholicism is the state religion, and the Church jealously guards its privileged political and economic clout. There is freedom of religion in basic rights for non-Catholics. Occultism is widespread, pervasive and strong. One major challenge is to develop Christian ethics in a society where corruption, crime and promiscuity are rampant.
