As I muslim, I am shocked with the rise of Islam in the west. 8.1 million muslims just in the US half of which are converts. Conversely, looking at sunday masses in Us church is just a proof that Christianity is slowly but surely withering away. U can only see old people with almost complete absence of the young 15-30 years old.

In just 20 years muslims will outnumber christians in the west simply because christianity is losing adherents to primarily agnosticism, athesim and to lesser extent, Islam.

I feel sorry for the confused christians who will live to watch this happen. Peace

Your comments have no validity for the United States and even in Europe there are signs of demographic changes. For one of them, see "Europe's Muslim Population in Demographic Free-fall?"
