ok first see if you can pronounce it, is that even a word? Laughing

this is a movie about religion.

do you know 16% of American are non-religious, more than any other minority in this country? ( black is about 12% sth. ) While all the others fuss about their life, gay, black ….. all these people have been kept themselves quiet.

I didn't know.

不一定。这是中国的情况:

In 2000, the People's Republic of China government census enumerated 4 million Chinese Catholics and 10 million ‎Protestants[27]. The Chinese government once stated that only 1% (13 million) [28] of the population is Christian while the Chinese Embassy states that 10 Million (0.75%)[29] are Christian. The official figure in 2002, which consists of members from Official Protestant churches, is about 15 million, while some estimates on members of Chinese house churches vary from 50 million to 100 million.

The CIA World Factbook indictates that about 3% to 4% of all the population in China are Christians.[30] Independent estimates have ranged from 40 million[28], to 100 million[31], or even 130 million Christians in January 2007 (out of a total population of at least 1.3 billion people).[32][33]

In October 2007 two surveys were conducted to estimate the number of Christians in China. One poll was held by Protestant missionary Werner Burklin, the other one by Liu Zhongyu from East China Normal University in Shanghai. The surveys were conducted independently and during different periods, but they reached the same results.[11][12] According to these studies, there are roughly 54 million Christians in China, of which 39 million are Protestants and 14 million are Catholics as the most common and reliable figure among others.[11][12][13]

Kiven Choy stated, in a Chinese weekly newspaper in Hong Kong, that the correct number of Protestants in China should be at around 20 million, while Time Magazine recently reported 65 million.[34]

我也听说近几年(算5年吧)上海有不少朋友皈依了,但是具体皈依啥有各种各样的,不过好像都是浮躁的赚钱社会造成的心理问题,找一个可以依托的精神支持啥的有利在那样的环境生存下去。

顺便,主席你给的数字范围也太大了,到底哪个对啊。。。农村和城乡结合部不知道,大城市里信基督教的1%没问题,2%可能也有,有没有5%倒是感觉很难说

I see.

Chinese are the chosen ones. It is comforting to see there are still so many true christians left in the world.

还真不知道有谁在中国做过这个统计, 不过算一算看来会不会势均力敌呀。中国好像是信什么教的都有,天主教,基督教,回教,佛教,藏传佛教,道教。。。还有那个维吾尔族信的那个教。好像还听说过Jew在中国也有。

前几天听新闻说美政府不放那几个Chinese Muslim, 到现在我也没搞明白,Muslim是回教吗?
