Quote: The evangelical population of Brazil increased by 16 million people over the 10 year period from 2000 to 2010, to 42.3 million, according to census results from the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) published Friday.

The 2010 census results reveal that over three decades the percentage of evangelicals jumped from 6.6 percent to 22.2 percent of the overall Brazilian population, making it the fastest growing religious segment in the Latin American country.

While the evangelical population ballooned, the Catholic population has decreased over the same 10 year period. In 2000 the Catholic population represented 73.6 percent of Brazil's population, but by 2010 that percentage had decreased to under two-thirds, or 64.6 percent.
  And of course barely any of that 64.6% goes to Mass.

I guess I could dig up stats on Mass attendance for the USA, Canada, and Europe, but we all know the FACTS already.  The Church is imploding due to Vat. II and the post-concilliar Popes.

For the sake of completeness:  A quick search showed me 36% church attendance in Brazil-- no indication as to how that was broken down between Catholics and Protestants (who are, all the same, much less numerous than the Catholics).  For comparison, church attendance in the US was 44%-- lower than Italy's 45%.

#1, apparently, was Nigeria.  Catholics, or Muslims, I wonder?
