I am amazed by the generalized spread of Catholisism

I have been amazed by the fact that a lot of my friends in the Phillipines or from there, Africa, and Vietnam are Catholics rather than Buddhist's or some other type of eastern religion. The Catholic Church has done a great job of spreading their religious beliefs amongst those that they term heathen countries. I thought that a lot of eastern civilizations and their decendants here in the US would not celebrate Christmas and weren't under the Christian faiths and beliefs. I am a lapsed baptist, and though I have friends from places like Pakastan who are lapsed Moslems I had not realized that western beliefs had spread so far and wide.

Are the Muslims spreading as rapidly as the Catholics. I was not aware of this. Thank you for adding your "voice" to this discussion.

people with no power or access to it will always seek out an alternative power sourse, i feel it is the reason for the spread of islam in 3rd world or underdeveloped countries and catholicism amongst the poor in the more advanced nations
