in response to reader comment: Islam-Catholicism

The main reason for Islamic growth is birth rate, dont believe me, look it up. Why are millions of them converting to Christianity in Russia?

I also know a good deal about African-American history, and there was no forced conversion. Most Africans were Christian before they were fored into Islam. North Africa and part of Sub-Saharan Africa was Christian. Along the eastern coast was Christianity. Some of the greatest kingdoms were Christian, ie Axium, which even conquered Egypt.

St. Morris the great Roman Commander was African and Christian. He was a martyr for all of Christianity, before Rome converted.

Also, every group has been a slave at one time, whether it be the Jews, Blacks, Christians, Whites, etc. However, slavery exists in the Sudan, where Muslims imprison blacks, and sell them into slavery. Also, American slavery was viable only because of black slave traders in Africa.

Ever saw Amistad? They dont tell you the free slave goes back to Africa to become a slave-trader.

How about the Nation of Islam, teaching that whites are devils, and that there is a conspiracy! If ive ever heard bogus before, its this.

African Christians are perhaps the most pious and blessed people. A people so persecuted and true to their religion, found by their own willingness. Africans have roots in Christianity, in many ways deeper than the Europeans or others.
