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.

  1. There is no distinction

    There is no distinction between Christians and Catholics.  Catholics ARE Christians (whatever your opinion on the The Church).  "Catholic" just means "universal," as in the one true Christian church (which is what the Vatican believes it is).

    Whoever wrote the article needs to brush up on their English.  They would be much more correct to frame it in terms of Roman Catholic vs. Protestant.
