Argentina is a religious society with long-held faith in God. This religious tradition has been a characteristic of the Argentine people since the beginning. To this day, nearly two hundred years after the start of Argentina's march toward independence, religion continues to be a crucial part of Argentine life. The Constitution of Argentina was first adopted in the year 1853. Consistent with Argentina's religious tradition, this "theistic" constitution invokes the name of God in its preamble. The Constitution has always mandated that the national government sustain the Catholic Church. It has also always guaranteed religious freedom. The status of religious freedom, as guaranteed by Argentine law, is, in general terms, highly satisfactory. Religions can perform their work without inconveniences and they see very few cases of discrimination based on religion. Those few cases that have surfaced have been isolated cases and in the majority of cases have been satisfactorily resolved.
