AMHERST, Mass. — Evangelical churches today are located in virtually every community in Latin America — plus they are changing politics like hardly any other force. These are generally providing conservative reasons, and specially governmental events, brand brand new power and brand brand new constituencies.
In Latin America, Christianity was previously connected with Roman Catholicism. The church held a monopoly that is near faith before the 1980s. The challenge that is only Catholicism had been anticlericalism and atheism. There never been another faith. As yet.
Evangelicals account for almost 20 percent of the population in Latin America, up from 3 percent three decades ago today.
