Irreligion in Uganda

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Irreligion in Uganda is uncommon among Ugandans (see religion in Uganda), as Christianity is the predominant faith. Only 0.9% of Ugandans claim no religion.[1] Most Ugandans are considered religious and there is a great stigma attached to being a non-believer.[2]

A small group of atheists such as James Onen have set up organizations opposing witchcraft and superstitions in Uganda.[3][4]
