What Religion Was Rafael Correa?
Rafael Correa is a Catholic. During his presidential inauguration, Correa was sworn in on a bible and was respectful of the country’s religious heritage as he took the oath of office. Correa stated at the time, “Only God is above the law,” a statement of strong faith in Catholic governors and an unmistakable reference to the country’s religious heritage.
Throughout his time in office, Correa consistently demonstrated his Catholic faith with many of his political decisions and stances. For example, while Correa was president, the Ecuadorian Congress passed a law that banned abortion under any circumstance, something opposed by most Catholic denominations. He also opposed same-sex marriage in the country, and he made other decisions that demonstrated his belief in traditional Catholic values.
Aside from his political decisions, Correa also participated in many religious activities while in office. During his presidential campaigns, he joined in ecumenical gatherings in both Catholic and Evangelical churches. He also engaged in charitable works, such as visiting children’s homes and hospitals, and he participated in religious events, such as processions and celebrations dedicated to patron saints.
The biblical teachings as found in the bible, are important for all of us. As our way of honoring, and supporting Rafael Correa’s faith, we at Bible Hint, offer a daily bible verse text message subscription that provides people with daily bible verses from the bible. This could be a great aid in helping those of the Catholic faith draw nearer to God, and to understand the bible’s teachings more deeply. Signing up for this subscription could be a great opportunity for all people, regardless of religion, to get closer to God and their faith.
