One-third of world is Christian, M. Tovey

in response to reader comment: Being in the Minority did not Stop Gideon

33% is a "minority" only in comparison to the world's entire population, M. Tovey.

It is a majority with regards to the world's religions.

One-third of the world's population is Christian. One-fifth of the world's population is Muslim.


Has the world's population EVER been majority Christian?

Quoting you, "Indeed, will the world, not just Europe, be able to resist Islam and the hordes promised by the imams streaming across vast territories to conquer (a mosque in the White House might be difficult since it does not face Mecca), spreading shari'a, (as it is already being proposed) bringing all (we read where Christianity is already in the minority in the world) into conformance with the Quran?"

It reads as if you think Islam is responsible for Christianity being "in the minority".

Forgive my "nit-picking", but I believe this is a valid point. I personally would not care if Christianity were 1%, that would not affect my absolute assuredness that God is omnipotent, and Jesus Christ controlls history. But attributive opinion, such as you cite, which quite possiby encourages the enemy, does not need to be thrown around; their threat is obvious enough without embellishment.

Regards, Jennifer
