Percentage of catholics[edit]

It should be discussed in the article that at the time the Portuguese left the country or annexation by Indonesia, the relative number of Catholics was just 27 %. It was due to Indonesia's anxiety to communism that the population was more or less forced to adopt a religion, just as in Indonesia proper. This led to the enormous increase of the number of Catholics. Meursault2004 23:26, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Interesting assertion. Sounds more like a conspiracy theory to me, not the POV an Encyclopaedia is generally interested in, unless you can phrase it in a neutral way, i.e. heading:conspiracy theory, text: ... even so. I think it's irrelevant. Tjpob (talk) 02:00, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Integrating several articles in this one[edit]

There is no reason for having Freedom of religion in East Timor, Islam in East Timor, and Roman Catholicism in East Timor as different articles. I'm merging those 3 into this one. The Ogre (talk) 17:41, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Bahá'í Center in Timor Leste[edit]

I will be going to Timor Leste next year and was wondering if there is any information available on the Bahá'í center over there. There is no mention of the center in the article, which was disappointing. If no information is available, when I go over, I could do a bit of research there.
