There are about 50 million Baptists alone and they only make up about a third of the Christian population, so I guess that makes about 150 million non-Catholic Christians in the USA. Maybe Mr. Trump and the others concerned about a Muslim take over of the country should get off of their soap boxes and let them live in peace. At a little less than 1 % of the total population I don't think they are that much of a threat to anyone - not that good Muslims, like good Baptists, are a threat anyway. As is usually the case, it's just the radicals in any group that cause problems. If you don't believe it go to a Baptist church business meeting some Wednesday night and watch Sister Jones and Sister Smith throw down over the color of the new choir robes. Can I get an Amen??

Low population. Same with Austria, Croatia and Portugal. And Malta, San Marino and Andorra, to prevent questions.

I would have guessed there were more in Vietnam than the stats show. I have a feeling that in a totally free and open society there might be a higher percentage that would identify as Catholic. Most of the Vietnamese I know here in the states identify as some mixture of traditional Buddhist and Catholic but if made to identify as one would say Catholic. Then again they are the ones or descendants of the ones that were the most "westernized" when everything fell apart. So maybe that is an accurate percentage.

Remember that Vietnam was colonized by the French, who are mostly Catholic. The low current numbers may reflect the fact that, after reunification, Catholics are afraid to identify as such.

Or they weren't as persistent in their conversion of the natives as, say, the Spanish were in the Philippines or Mexico.

College football reference. Notre Dame and Miami play on Saturday. Biggest game between these two teams since the famous "Catholics vs. Convicts" game in the 80's. Probably too obscure of a reference . . . certainly wasn't intending any disrespect of Catholics.
