Mexico have a big belief in a religion down the years many Mexicans have lost their beliefs.  But  Being a Catholic is very popular, 82.7% of the population were catholic and everybody wanted to be Catholic, and the pope was very loved and he was the leader first so everybody listened to him. Whatever he said had to be done; Mexico is the second biggest country with the most Catholics, they have  more than 15,000 pastor and more than 45,000 people that believe in it and attend the meetings.  When their Catholics, they believe that someone can be saved by baptism with the holy spirit, but Christianity  is starting to dominate more of Mexico, they are now at 4% of the population. The people that don't believe in a religion or don't practice any are called atheist, But now people have stopped going to church like they used to and they have became atheist, they no longer believe in god or any religion. And without any religion to teach them from what’s good and from what’s bad they wouldn't know if they were doing something bad or good.
