Bumper stickers and window-decals are a great way to show off your religious affiliation in Brazil, and no driver needs God’s protection more than in a country which had 42,000 road deaths in 2010, and which has a culture of drinking and driving that would boggle Don Draper.
It was God who made me.
Present from God.
God is faithful.
I love Jesus.
The righteous walk and live by faith.
There are things only Jesus can do.
You want ultimate happiness? Put Jesus first.
God cares for me.
The blood of Jesus has power.
Brazil was founded by Roman Catholic Jesuits, and about ninety percent of Brazilians still declare some sort of religious affiliation according to a 2010 census.
The dominant religion is Roman Catholicism, although the number of practitioners has decreased from 90 per cent in the 1970’s to less than 65 per cent in 2010.
22 per cent now align themselves as Evangelical Protestants, with Candomblers, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, Buddhists, Jews and Muslims making up five per cent. The rest declared no official affiliation.
