Remembering Your Religion

Unlike the United States where some schools face persecution for using words like Christmas or thinking about using the Lord's prayer, Ghana is very open about its beliefs.

The BYU Magazine in the Spring said"take a drive down the streets of Accra, and it's clear why Ghana has developed a reputation as a religious, tolerant, happy nation:  Christian churches and Muslim mosques sit side by side as peaceful neighbors, and local business names like the pictures below bespeak a pervasive faithful enthusiasm."

Religions: Christian 68.8% (Pentecostal/Charismatic 24.1%, Protestant 18.6%, Catholic 15.1%, other 11%), Muslim 15.9%, traditional 8.5%, other 0.7%, none 6.1%)

It is therefore not usual to find religious sayings on taxis, cars or in the names of businesses.
