Did you meant fastest shrinking religion? See Al-Jazeera's report not too long ago:

16 million people leaving islam per year in Africa alone. And we haven't even started counting the number of iranians leaving in droves :D

Says who? They quote the quran in context to back their actions. Most of them have frequented established mosques or madrassas; but most important of all, they themselves state that islam is their justification.

> The text of the Quran does not justify what they are doing.

Eat this: "O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty unto Him." quran 9:123.

Now let me guess your rebuttal, I am taking it out of context right? Bite me.

> anyone with common sense knows they are just the unfortunate radical few

Yeah right you wish. You may be able to convince yourself and your fellow muslims but know that in this world, the most intelligent people are "disbelievers", the very people whom the above verse instructs you to fight. They are more intelligent than muslims and they don't buy your crap.

> Think about radical groups of every religion. (same concept)

Can you name me a radical group from Buddhism?

Baloney. You just wanted defend this increasingly indefensible religion of yours. Nice try but intelligent people doesn't buy it. So busted... :D
