    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Ecumenical School of Religious Studies at the National University (UNA) presented its most recent study of changes in religious beliefs in Costa Rica.

    What they found is that only 4 out of 10 Costa Ricans go to church and almost half demand a separation between politics and religion. The study was based on focus group interviews, conducted from July 1 to 31, 2013. Also, a telephone survey was conducted on October 16 and 31 was included.

    Among other details, 69% of the people professed to being active Catholics, but 85.3% of them pray, but in the place and time when they can.

    On homosexuality, 36.5% of respondents believed that churches should advise and support those people to not be homosexual, 34% believed that churches should educate believers on sexual diversity and 28.2% say that churches should not be involved in people’s sexual preference.

    According to the study there are more women than men who admit to having a religious affiliation and on abortion, nearly half of the people agreed with making it legal in the country.
