For example Christianity with counted with over 2 billion followers [31.5% of world population - and it's broken down here] overlap those are culturally Christian as well as indigenous people combining folk religions or shamanism with either Christianity or Islam.
The majority of Americans (73%) identify themselves as Christians and about 20% have no religious affiliation. According to the American Religious Identification Survey (ARIS) (2008) 76% of the American adult population identified themselves as Christians, with 51% professing attendance at a variety of churches that could be considered Protestant or unaffiliated, and 25% professing Catholic beliefs. The same survey says that other religions (including, for example, Judaism, Buddhism, Islam, and Hinduism) collectively make up about 4% of the adult population, another 15% of the adult population claim no religious affiliation, and 5.2% said they did not know, or they refused to reply. According to a 2012 survey by the Pew forum, 36 percent of Americans state that they attend services nearly every week or more.
In 2000, the religious demographics of Texas were:
  • Evangelical Protestant 64.4%.
  • Roman Catholic 21.2%
  • Mainline Protestant 8.1%
  • Orthodox 0.1%
  • Hindu, Sikhs, Buddhists, Muslim, others; 2.0%
  • Unclaimed 4.5%
Religion. According to a Pew Forum poll, as of 2008, 76% of Ohioans identified as Christian. Specifically, 26% of Ohio's population identified as Evangelical Protestant, 22% as Mainline Protestant, and 21% as Roman Catholic. 17% of the population is unaffiliated with any religious body.
I have no idea where Christians get this idea that they're oppressed or something.
I am oppressed everyday by neighbors who continue to belittle me and cyberbullied occasionally for my faith.
