Hi Emeiliya, about 85% of <a href=http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/rel_rel&int=-1>Cubans are Catholics</a>, with the country officially acknowledging religious faith after more than three decades of <a href=http://www.cubadomainsforsale.com/cuban-religion.html>religious restrictions</a>. Interesting facts on religion in Cuba can be had at: http://jewishcuba.org/religion.html. <p>However, in order to create and print out a pie-chart, you need to be a <a href=http://www.nationmaster.com/benefits.php>supporter</a>.
