As one of the most religious countries of Europe, the predominantly Catholic Poland reassessed its church-state relations during the first stages of post-communist transformation by moving away from the system of strict state control over religious life and embracing an informal established church model that privileges the Roman Catholic Church in public affairs. As in no other formerly communist EU member state, the Polish state has codified the Roman Catholic position toward education and abortion in its national legislation to the point of endangering the constitutionally enshrined fundamental human rights and freedoms. Religious minorities are free to conduct their activities, but their combined membership amounts to only a fraction of population.
