The scary column is the last one. Mix that with military power and you have major danger.

Happily there are only 5 countries left with a medieval majority of fanatical believers. The picture would not look so rosy if you includes Islamic countries.

The odd thing is the Philippines with 82.7% fanatics. Christianity was imposed on them by invaders. You would think they would deeply resent it and throw it off at the first opportunity. Black people similarly had Christianity imposed as part of slavery, yet they still cling to it. Perhaps the brutality of the conversion burned it deep.
