Liberia is 80% Christian but the religiosity is apalling. here is an interesting article http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5gv1wKmUfSMnj6CefsegVT2ojp_2gD8UA5HTG0 about how people use religion here in Liberia, I think it is a safety valve from the war, even some of the most bizarre and cruel killings were done with images of christian symbols, like the video of Prince Johnson killing then president Doe with a huge portrait of Jesus in the back ground then taking part in religious hyms. oh prince johnson is now an eleected legislator. this place is truely odd.
