First Islam does not respect others religions. It can't even respect itself and its followers of different sects like Shia verses Sunni.
Your say Islam is the fastest growing religion in America?
Okay lets break it down.
There are about 4 million Muslims (and I am being generous) in America.
There are 150 million Christians (Evangelicals Catholics Orthodox and others)
No way is Islam growing faster than Christians. Not by birth and for sure not by conversion
If you are going by birth rate per capita Islam would outgrow a religion that is equal by population like Islam. Maybe like the Jehovah witnesses for example.
Second Muslims have an average of about 5 ½ babies per household while Jehova's have three.
So yes Islam is the fastest growing religion when compared to other offshoot religions such as the Jehovah's.
