Hi...dear friends In my topic on philippines today, I am starting the discussion about the religion. In India the main religion is Hinduism. It is believed that the Hindu religion came into existence before 5000 years.This is the ancient religion of India.More than 80% of people believe in Hinduism. In my personal view all Indians are belonged to Hindusism. I dont consider Hinduism as a religion but as a culture. In India there are other religions also.These are the other Indian religions Buddhism, Jainism and sikhism. These all put toghether there will be 3%. The other prominent religion is Muslim. Muslim constitues round about15% and other important religion is Christianity .Christians constitute about 3% of the total population.The Indian christianity is as old as the period of Jesus Christ. There are a lot of Temples (Place of worship for Hindus), Mosque (Place of worship for Muslims), Churches (Place of worship for Christians) and Gurudwaras ( PLACE OF WORSHP FOR sIKHS)in different part of the country. Which are the major religions in Philiphines. Is the Philippines are tolerable to other religions ??? What is the social fabric of Philippines ?

The majority of Filipinos is Catholic and some is Muslim in Mindanao. The other half is Protestant or they are member of the sects. My religion is Roman Catholic and I don't want to switch to some other religion. For me I prefer to stay in Roman Catholic I find my peace here.
