I know exgangmembers that believed in everything from Catholic, Christian, Muslim, Budhist, and Devil worship before they stopped banging. I know an exridah from the Deadends in the Valley that was shot nine times in the chest and lived. He had that devil tat on his hand you know and didn't care at the time but now he is a Christian and has been walking in the light for a few years. He finally figured it out.

Most La Raza come from a Catholic background, most Asians come from a budhist background, most Blacks come from a Christian or Muslim background, and most whites come from an aethist or Christian background (but often their Christianity is not real Christianity but a twisted WP form that has nothing to do with real Christianity). Most means most but not all. Do you have any other questions about this?

I would say that most Pinoy gang members are Catholic. Back in the 80's and early 90's , it was not unusual to see Pinoy gang members all g'd up attending mass (church service).

depends of race, ethnicity, region and gang. Hispanic gang members from the West to the East are mostly Catholics, most black american families are Baptists, but there is a generation of Muslim converts. In england, many of the Pakistani and Arab gang members are Muslim.

A lot of white prison gang members are into Asatru/Odinism.
