According to the CIA fact book, Taiwan Christian population = 4.5%; and for the PRoC = 3-4%.Kai wrote:From the reports I heard, its Christianity that is soaring in China and Taiwan.

These figures are barely "soaring".
Buddhism on the other hand, Taiwan Buddhist / Daoist = 93%; PRoC has no figure, but it is obviously far, far more than Christianity. I've heard reliable figures of around 20-40%.
For example, in Taiwan or the PRoC, Christmas is not a holiday, and barely an event at all.
For Taiwan and HK, Vesak Day is a holiday.
Perhaps it is reading Western media, which often has a vested interested in indicating that Christianity is popular (anywhere)?
