Religions of China

The Communist government of China encourages atheism, and a large majority of the Chinese population identify themselves as atheists. Nevertheless, nearly thirty percent consider themselves adherents of one or another religion or spiritual philosophy.

The most popular of these belief systems are traditional Chinese philosophies, most notably Confucianism and Taoism. In addition, Buddhism is practiced by many and is particularly strong in Tibet.

You can find links to resources on these and other religions at a McKinley Internet Yellow Pages 4-star Web site, Facets of Religion.
