in response to reader comment: Fortress Europe?

Na, it is not the converts and it is not the internet that Islamicizes Europe. It is migration, demography, and imam's preaching jihad. Lost European souls stupidly join in, and are well used by the imams, no doubt. CS Lewis warned us about our relativism: that it would create "men with no chests", or with "hollow chests". This vacuousness of faith in Europe is certainly at the root of the in-rush of Islam; but "each generation is born equidistant from God." I think young Europeans may yet rediscover the God of their fathers who redeems them from a meaningless life. They may also decide that their civilization is also worth saving.
