In Ecuador, the Catholic Church has long been a pillar of power and influence in the country.
Its presence has been the backbone of the country’s social and economic development, and it has become a major economic engine in the economy.
But recently, it has seen the rise of anti-clericalism.
In recent years, more than 2,000 people have been killed and thousands have disappeared, mostly from religious organisations and political parties.
Some of those killings have been linked to anti-Catechism protests.
In 2016, several bishops and priests were killed when protesters attacked a church in the capital, Quito.
More recently, a priest in the northern state of Santa Cruz was reportedly killed by protesters in 2016.
More than 300,000 Christians, including nearly all of Ecuador’s bishops, were baptized in Ecuador in 2016, according to the Catholic church’s website.
However, that number has fallen sharply in recent years.
According to the Church’s official statistics, in 2015-2016, the number of baptisms was more than 7 million.
The Catholic Church is also an important source of income for the country, accounting for more than 10 per cent of GDP, according the United Nations.
In the last few years, the country has been facing severe economic problems, especially the impact of the global economic crisis.
The country has experienced an economic contraction of around 3.7 per cent over the past three years, with the loss of around 6 million jobs.
The country is also grappling with a number of problems: high inflation and a strong economy, low growth, low social cohesion, and the emergence of an ultra-conservative religious ideology.
The rise of the ultra-right has created political uncertainty in Ecuador, and many are suspicious of any change to the current constitution that could lead to an election in 2019.
Ecuador has a constitution that allows the president to call snap parliamentary elections if he decides to do so.
However in recent months, the President has been holding onto power through the process of direct rule by his vice president, who is the head of state, rather than through an election.
At the same time, the emergence and support of anti and anti-Christian ideology has resulted in a number social tensions, which have seen several people killed.
In June, an atheist blogger, Ramiro Soria, was murdered by right-wing extremists in Ecuador’s capital, Managua.
The attack on Soria triggered an uproar in Ecuador.
At the time, Ravi Santos, the vice president of the Central Republican Party, was suspended from the presidency.
Santos has been accused of orchestrating the murder of the blogger and for promoting religious hatred against the Church.
