Islam is spreading like anything because humans by nature are violent and it is quite frankly easier to be a Muslim than a Christian. Who wouldn't take 4 wives as opposed to one if it didn't matter? Or is it easier to kill someone that disagrees with than you than to buck up and take the criticism like a man? Or is it easier to convert people by convincing them it is the right path or to bribe them with seventy something virgins as Muslims do?
