Panama's constitution states that Roman Catholicism is the majority religion and should be taught in public schools; parents do, however, have the right to exempt their children from religious instruction.
An official survey carried out by the government estimated in 2015 that 63% of the population, or 2.5M people, identifies itself as Roman Catholic, and 25% percent as evangelical Protestant. Other faiths are The Jehovah's Witnesses, Adventist Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Buddhism, Judaism, Bahá'í Faith and Rastafarians. Therefore Panama has an interesting variety of faiths quite unique in Latin America.

Pope Francis is the head of the Catholic Church and sovereign of the Vatican City State. Francis is the first Jesuit pope, the first from the Americas, the first from the Southern Hemisphere.
At his first audience on 16 March 2013, Francis told journalists that he had chosen the name in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi, and had done so because he was especially concerned for the well-being of the poor.
Pope Francis said that the most powerful message of Jesus Christ is mercy.
Francis told La Civilta Cattolica that the church does not need to speak constantly of the issues of abortion, artificial contraception, and homosexuality. He thought that other issues, notably the duty to help those who are poor and marginalized, have been neglected. He added that the church had focused in trivial issues, and as such should not be so prone to condemn, and that priests should be more welcoming. He said the confessional should be used to motivate people to better themselves.
While he has said that the greatest poverty is "the lack of Christ," and the "only one real kind of poverty" is "not living as children of God and brothers and sisters in Christ", Francis has also been very outspoken against material poverty.
Pope Francis has courageously confronted many difficult issues in his life, such as the abuses, corruption and disappeared students in Argentina, sexual scandals in the church etc. He also has a great admiration for the family as a manifestation of God in its fullness.
So in summary, Pope Francis has all the hallmarks of a revolutionary, he has seen the light of God!
