Good Question! The Next Logical One Is This --

The point you make leads to some very good questions. Today, 6% of USA's population is the subject minority.

In 2020, that will likely be 10% or more. Today, 11% of London population is the same minority belief. In 2020, will it be 17% or 20%? Given the ultra-low birth rates of the West, and the aging of the West's baby-boomers and pre-boom generations, the # of children in the West who are offended by similar slights will rise.

Is it possible that while we can forestall the ritual of prayer in public school today, that the call to prayer will someday echo through the halls of high schools in the cities of Europe, Canada and USA before the middle of the 21st Century?
