Although historically (since the [[Catholic Reformation|Counter-Reformation]] persecution and expulsion of Protestants by the Spaniards in the XVIthe century) [[Roman Catholicism|Roman Catholic]], most people in Brussels are non-practising. About 10% of the population regularly attends church services. Among the religions, historically dominant [[Roman Catholicism]] prevailing mostly in a relaxed way, one finds large minorities of [[Muslims]], [[Atheism|atheists]], [[Agnosticism|agnosticists]], and of the philosophical school of [[humanism]], the latter mainly as ''vrijzinnig-laïcité'' (an approximate translation would be secularists or ''free thinkers'') or practicing [[Humanism (life stance)|Humanism]] as a [[life-stance]] — Brussels houses several key organisations for both kinds. Other (recognized) religions ([[Protestantism]], [[Anglicanism]], [[Orthodoxy]] and [[Judaism]]) are practised by much smaller groups in Brussels. Recognized religions and ''[[Laïcité]]'' enjoy public funding and school courses: every pupil in an official school from 6 years old to 18 must choose 2 hours per week of compulsory religion- or ''Laïcité''-inspired morals.
