How many people in France belong to the many religions?
Religion in Europe can be confusing because many atheists and agnostics still label themselves as belonging to a Christian Church but only go there for baptisms, weddings and funerals. The Catholic Church is historically the state church (ties broken in early 1800s), but only 64% of the population is now self-identified as Catholic and less than 5% attend Mass weekly. Fifty years ago, France was over 80% Catholic.
In recent polls, about a third of French people state they have "no religion" (this is low for Europe).
Of the rest:
58% are Christian (majority Roman Catholic)
Like many countries around the world, the people of France have many different religions. The government is a secular government and does not recognise any official religion. The traditional religion of France is Catholicism, and there are many Catholics living in France. Some are non-practicing Catholics, which means they have been baptised and/or confirmed but do not regularly attend Church. Other religions practiced in France include Islam (France has many Islamic immigrants from North Africa)…
South Africa has many, many religions. All religions are accepted in the "rainbow nation" so there are many places for South Africans to worship depending on what religion people belong to. There are many churches & temples all over the country. Some people just meet under a specific tree or in a specific field to worship.
Christianity is not A religion; it is a group of religions that would all believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah and that through HIM we are saved and can go to heaven. There are many different religions that consider themselves Christians, because of their belief in Christ. There are approximately 2 billion people that call themselves Christians. These people belong to many different denominations, though.
Allot of france was catholic but I am sure there are all other sorts of religions and beliefs Like England there are many religions, and beliefs, but the majority of France is Catholic, but in different parts of France it may vary, good luck with finding out though, beause this is an intresting question! Best of luck! ;')
It is hard to say what French people believe in as a group. Like people in the US, many French people are religious, many are not. The majority of people in France are Catholic, but not all of these attend church. There are many different religions in France and the government does not support or promote any one religion. French people have a very strong belief in democracy, fairness and justice. They are very proud…
