What is religious commerce?

Mexico is a secular country, and has allowed freedom of worship since the mid-18th century. Traditional Protestant denominations and the free practice of Judaism have been established in the country since the time of the Reformation. In modern times, growth has been observed in the Evangelical church, the Mormon church and practices of the native cultures, such as the Mexicayotl.[4][5] Buddhism and Islam have also made inroads into the country through immigration and conversion.[citation needed] In certain regions, the profession of a religious denomination has been a major source of religious freedom.

In certain regions, the profession of a creed other than Catholic is seen as a threat to community unity. It is argued that the Catholic religion is part of the ethnic identity and that Protestants are unwilling to participate in traditional uses and customs (tequio or community work, participation in patron saint festivals and similar matters). The Protestants’ refusal is due to the fact that their religious beliefs prohibit the veneration of the saints of Catholicism. In extreme cases, the tension between Catholics and Protestants has resulted in the expulsion or even murder of Protestants in several towns. The best known cases are those of San Juan Chamula,[9][10] in Chiapas and San Nicolás in Ixmiquilpan,[11] Hidalgo.

Religión de santo tomé y príncipe

El trabajo argumentará que, para entender adecuadamente las modificaciones del campo religioso argentino, es necesario también incluir las resistencias sociales a esos cambios debido a las consecuencias que traen para la práctica y el desarrollo de las religiones minoritarias. A partir de aportes conceptuales de Beckford, el trabajo se propone distinguir la diversidad de pluralismo religioso y, atentos a la perspectiva de las “economías religiosas” propuesta por Stark y Iannaccone, se considerará al grado de regulación del mercado religioso como una variable de principal importancia para entender los cambios, tomando en cuenta tanto la acción gubernamental como la regulación social. Estas ideas se ejemplificarán examinando el aumento del movimiento social evangélico – más allá de su prioridad meramente religiosa – que lucha por derechos religiosos igualitarios en una situación de supuesto pluralismo religioso en Argentina.

El artículo argumenta que para entender el estado actual del campo religioso argentino y el desarrollo de las nuevas religiones es necesario incluir en nuestro análisis la resistencia social que encuentran. Se critica la idea generalizada de que, tras la erosión del monopolio católico, se forma un mercado religioso sin esfuerzo y que el pluralismo simplemente sobreviene. Basándose en el reciente trabajo de James Beckford, sostiene que la diversidad religiosa no implica necesariamente el pluralismo (su valoración positiva). Haciendo hincapié en la idea central del paradigma de las economías religiosas (Stark, Iannaccone) de que el grado de regulación de un mercado religioso es siempre una variable crucial a tener en cuenta, sigue el enfoque multidimensional de la regulación de Grim y Finke, teniendo en cuenta la regulación gubernamental y la social. Ejemplifica estas ideas examinando el surgimiento de un movimiento social evangélico -a partir de uno previo meramente religioso- que lucha por la igualdad de derechos religiosos en una situación de supuesto pluralismo religioso en Argentina.
