Catholicism is Korea's most trusted faith
Catholic World News - September 27, 2010
Catholicism is the most trusted faith in Korea, a new survey shows.
The weekly magazine Sisain found that when readers were asked to name the two most credible religions in Korea, Catholicism scored highest, gaining almost 58% of the votes. Buddhism followed with 50%.
The public esteem for Catholicism reflects in part the willngness of Church leaders to tackle controversial social issues, a Church spokesman said.

When I was stationed their in 1997-1998, Catholicism was the largest Christian denomination. It was great being their as I was involved with the English and Korean speak Cursillo community. As a result, St. Andrew Kim Taegon is one of my patrons.

Wow! This is a surprise. I thought the largest percentage of Koreans were Methodists.
