Looking at the MSNBC article I posted about the Vatican backing teaching Islam in public schools. I made a point of how Christians can be put to death in Saudi Arabia by preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. A Muslim replied that Italy is a secular country and Saudi Arabia is not.
Then it occured to me, that all democracies (for the most part are Christian, maybe Hindu and Buddhist to an extent), but certainly not Islam. Our own countries (predominantly Christian ones) invite Muslims or anyone else in, where they will undoubetly convert people, but make converting Muslims to Christianity an offense punishable by death in their own countries. It’s brilliant! In England Islam is the fastest growing religon, and middle class Christians are the biggest group converting, it’s the same all over Europe.
Freedom of religion has essentially turned into a proseletyzing tool for Islam, with no worries about Muslims being converted within the heart of Islam.
So is this it? Are we living in the generation where Christians will decline? Will the expansion of Democracy and the “Global Vilage” concept be the death to widespread Chrstianity?
