Hare Krishna picture[edit]

There is a picture of a Hare Krishna procession in the Buddhism section, even with a caption about them being buddhists. Hare Krishnas are not buddhists, they are hindus. The article is semi-protected so I can not correct that myself. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wenzelkarbovski (talkcontribs) 17:39, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Self-ascription fallacy[edit]

The last census reported, by self-ascription, that over 95% of the population is Christian.

The so-called self-ascription of the census is nothing but a silly way of measuring data. Obviously they count children as Christians just because their parents say so. This people should either be clear about this or not count children at all. By the way, since a couple of years ago the Catholic Church has started to indoctrinate Huichol kids. Shame on us, Mexicans. Shame on us... The Huichols were one of the very few indigenous people whose religious tradition haven't been polluted by Catholicism but now the church has started taking advantage of the poverty of this people and the new constitutional reforms to infiltrate to their villages and improvise "schools". Of course they know that adults wouldn't let themselves be indoctrinated so they choose to attack young minds. Catholicism and ignorance have been the ingredients of our condition as a Third World country. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Scandza (talkcontribs) 13:27, 30 May 2009 (UTC)


Can anyone explain why the Evangelical Free Church of America does so many, many missionary trips to Mexico, when it's a predominantly catholic country? I mean, there are definite ideological differences involved, but I wasn't aware the two churches actively tried to convert each other's members.


First phrase[edit]

Any interest in removing "Unlike some other Latin American countries" from the first sentence of the article? It does not seem to serve any objective purpose and seems slightly antagonistic. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Namenderkrieg (talkcontribs) 15:34, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Easter[edit]

I'm removing this:

"Some of them however, do not celebrate Easter because they think that the Easter Bunny is the devil. Instead of celebrating Easter, they like to eat Mexican Pizzas."

because it's obviously untrue and just stupid. I think the article should be rewritten though, by someone more experienced than I am.--PARCGOP 14:09, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

Contradiction?[edit]

This article says that 95% of people in Mexico are Roman Catholic. The Mexico article states that 95% of people are Christian, and only 89% are Roman Catholic. Which is correct, or am I just confused? Yumecosmos (talk) 02:20, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Rewriting[edit]

I have imported the Religion section from the article on Mexico and integrated the information that was only on this article. I also moved around paragraphs and added a subtitle to make reading easier. Finally I removed the stub templates and replaced it with the expand one. --Marianika (talk) 16:32, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

What about non-believers?[edit]

What about atheists, agnostics, deists in Mexico? How many Mexicans actually believe in God? Is there any data about that? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.196.243.113 (talk) 22:41, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Mexican Ethnic Religion (Mexicayotl)[edit]

This article lacks a part about the growing movement of Mexicayotl, or Ethnic Mexican Culture or Religion, which is the revival of "Aztec" religion. --79.45.49.143 (talk) 12:47, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Typo in Nonreligious section[edit]

There's a typo in the Nonreligion section - an extraneous "sus" - but I don't know what it should read. MaxwellPerkins (talk) 05:05, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Population in terms of religion by state[edit]

I got this part from the Dutch wikipedia page of religion in Mexico, there is no source mentioned. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MartijnBlom (talkcontribs) 10:54, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
