Dustin' off the Degree - Top Three Largest Religious Bodies

Returning to the series I announced a few weeks ago we’re going to start working through the largest religious bodies in the world. Some, like today’s will be grouped together since most of our listeners should have at least a basic understanding of them, but for the sake of new listeners, I want to go through at least some basics.

  1. Roman Catholic Church - 1.1 billion
  2. Sunni Islam - 1 billion
  3. Eastern Orthodox Church - 225 million
  • Rick Wiles warns of a Jew Coup and purge of Christians
  • Chick-fil-A faces right wing backlash after cutting ties to Christian groups
  • Utah substitute teacher escorted out of school after anti-gay rant
  • Roy Moore wants to go back to the 60s and 70s with prayers and devotionals in public schools and were abortion and homosexuality are illegal
