Kerala Churches

 

Thiruvananthapuram: Divinity has taken a backseat and its a free for all over power and money between the authorities in Kerala churches. According to the latest Census, Christians comprise 61.41 lakh (29.94 lakh males and 31.47 lakh females) of Kerala’s 33.4 million population. Among the Christians, about 50 per cent are Catholics (their three different Churches owe allegiance to the Pope), while the remaining 50 percent comprise the non-Catholics — the Orthodox and Jacobite factions of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church and the Mar Thoma Church (all three headquartered in Kerala) as well as the Church of South India (CSI) (South Kerala dioceses).
