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)
