Does this report surprise you at all? Or were you expecting this?
A PEW Research report shows that Islam is growing at a faster rate than Christianity.
The Leftists have called Christianity ‘intolerant’ and ‘outdated’ — yet have ignored the human rights abuses Islam inflicts on women and the LGBT communities; both groups that the Leftists claim to champion.
An all-out ideological war on Christianity, and the unfettered growth of Islam.
Muslims will double their share of the population in the United States by 2050 and surpass Christianity as the world’s dominant religion by the end of the century, according to a Pew Research Center report released last week.
The Pew study comes the same week that saw two acts of mass murder perpetrated by Muslim extremists — a suicide bombing outside a concert in Manchester, England, and a gun attack on a bus filled with Coptic Christians in Egypt.
The reason for the disparity comes down to simple demographics. Muslims are younger and have more babies than Christians and members of other religions. The projected birth rate of Muslim women from 2015 to 2020 is 2.9 babies per woman, compared to a non-Muslim fertility rate of 2.2.
Since Muslims aren’t killing their babies, their religion is growing.
Based on demographic trends, Pew projects that the Muslim population will grow by 70 percent worldwide between 2015 and 2060, compared with an overall population growth of 32 percent. That far exceeds the projected growth of the second- and third-fastest growing religions, Christianity and Hinduism, respectively.
Clare Lopez, Vice President of Research and Analysis at the Center for Security Policy, says that an already existent cultural rift between Western society and Islamic adherents is exacerbated by an increase in numbers. Some experts say that when just the Muslim population reaches about 5% of the general population, the demand for Sharia law to be added to the country’s existing laws begins.
Lopez also says that the terror watch lists are growing too large for security agencies to handle them.
The Times UK reports that the scale of possible terrorists is much higher than was originally estimated. Intelligence officers have said that there are 23,000 people being watched as possible terrorists in the United Kingdom. How can authorities juggle watching all of those people at once?
Besides, Leftists are ok with pluralism.
What’s a little terror between friends, amirite?
Lopez pointed to an interview that Rowan Williamson, the archbishop of Canterbury, gave in 2008 in which he appeared to support the idea of Sharia law. He said that “as a matter of fact, certain provisions of Sharia are already recognized in our society and under our law.”
Lopez also rejected the notion that the United States can avoid Europe’s fate because of its long history of assimilation. Notwithstanding a number of terrorist attacks and foiled terror plots on U.S. soil in recent years, she argued, the only reason why those incidents have not kept pace with Europe is the smaller Muslim population.
“We’re no different than Europe,” he said. “There’s no such thing as assimilation … The only difference between us and Europe is time and numbers.”
