The muslims are doing the same thing the catholics used to do: move to other countries and breed like fucking rabbits in an attempt to outpopulate the other ethnic, social and religious groups.

The goal is to have more members and either have dictatorship through democracy, or have religious wars and win by attrition.

Well, considering that Atheism, isn't a religion, doesn't that mean that Islam will be the largest religion in Ireland? The only reason that Islam is growing, is because of their hard core dogma, and the threat of death, that western world Christians no longer abide by. Blasphemy was punishable by death in the Christian faith not that long ago.

I suspect, as Islam is newer than Christianity, they too will some day see how wrong it is to kill their own over the dumbass book.

islam is filled with fools, liars and scum. It may well be a faith/culture, but the only honest claim about its size is that its the biggest accumulation of cancerous filth on the planet.

My understanding of the article is that Christian numbers will fall due to the expansion of Atheism which will allow Islam to become the second biggest religion, but Christianity will still be bigger numbers than Islam.

Ten years ago Islam probably did not exist in Ireland before Europe allowed access to Islam through immigration so Christianity would likely have been the only religion.

It seems as if the majority of people will be atheists.

When Christianity is the only religion but Muslims come to a Land then promote a Religion that is an alien concept while denouncing the Bible and saying that it is not trustworthy, it is likely that some people weak in the Faith of Christianity may decide to become Athiests rather than Muslims and l suspect that has happened!

30 years is a long time and I don't think Islam will be around during that time due to the fact that all there nations are on the brink of civil war and not to mention that most Muslims are finding out the truth about there religion and leaving to join other religions and also becoming atheist and agnostic so in actual fact Islam is shrinking and dying out you only have to see the proof with there made up stats and facts and lies this is a classic way of a soon to be extinct organization acts " take as many before you go" attitude and they know this that is way they are trying there hardest to force there culture on us there doing it out of desperation there stone age religion is dying

Islam is the most progressive, humanistic and just religion.

The Muslims of Iraq and Afghanistan were attacked by the Anglo-American-Zionist powers due to a misunderstanding that the horrific events of 911 were caused by them.

But, the truth of the matter is different. And, finally the TRUTH is coming to the surface . The Muslims were innocent and were unjustly slaughtered.

The Muslims are committed to world peace. And at the same time, they have proven that they can defeat any power of any size for a right cause. They can never be intimidated.
Islam today is the fastest growing religion of the world, especially after 911. 30,000 Americans are accepting Islam every year. God will bring true peace in this world.
America must stop promoting Israeli terrorism, stop the "chosen" people from spreading pornography and prostitition to make money, and play an honest role in world politics.

H.G. Wells

"The Islamic teachings have left great traditions for equitable and gentle dealings and behavior, and inspire people with nobility and tolerance. These are human teachings of the highest order and at the same time practicable. These teachings brought into existence a society in which hard-heartedness and collective oppression and injustice were the least as compared with all other societies preceding it....Islam is replete with gentleness, courtesy, and fraternity."


Dr. William Draper in 'History of Intellectual Development of Europe'

"During the period of the Caliphs the learned men of the Christians and the Jews were not only held in great esteem but were appointed to posts of great responsibility, and were promoted to the high ranking job in the government....He (Caliph Haroon Rasheed) never considered to which country a learned person belonged nor his faith and belief, but only his excellence in the field of learning."

But half of that number of 1.5 billion are people who have appeared to accept Islam is because they were forced to do so to escape persecution and death. There are over 2 billion Christians who are with Christianity because they want to be as they were not forced to be. Muslim numbers that you delight in are not solid in their new faith. You have no shame and nothing to be proud of! If these converts to Islam had governments who would give them protection from Islam and evil Muslims they would not have gone to Islam and become phoney Muslims.

The imams in the mosques preach hatred against Jews and Christians, and lie about injustices committed by other religions against Islam to rile Muslims to satanic actions against others. These imams are the servants of Satan the Dragon and Beast. Your mosques are owned by Satan.

Its reputation is the opposite.

The opposite is true. The intervention was to save lives (Muslim or otherwise) and fewer lives were lost, destroyed or disrupted since 2003 in Iraq than in Syria in the last three years. That shows what the help of 160,000 Western troops did.

Islamists are no more than theologically driven fanatics and dimwits. They are disowned by most Muslims.

Most Irish attitudes are more realistic. My family comes from Eire and none of us believes in gods and we aren't religious.

From:
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europ...
The survey showed that those Irish who considered themselves religious had fallen from 69 per cent in 2011 to less than half today. Ireland was ranked seventh in the 57 countries for those describing themselves as convinced atheists.

Religion = superstition

I like your posts PS but I don't think that was/is intentional or planned. Such big families and over-population is arguably more the product of poverty and lack of education.

First, they just went there to spread their faith, not to cause war, not to dictate, not to do anything but spread their faith, so mind your business.

Poverty and lack of education? We're talking about religion here. That's exactly how the cults want their members, poor, ignorant and willingly obedient. The educated don't expect religion to solve their problems, regardless of believer or atheist. Religion is a security blanket for the desperate, so they do what they're told.

As for invading other countries to outpopulate them, what about the English in Australia (okay, protestants, not catholic)? The Dutch in South Africa (okay, small numbers but with military and political power)? The "10/40 window" idiots? North and South America?

And let's not forget the Soviets (e.g. Baltic states) and Chinese (e.g. Tibet), trying to eliminate other populations, languages and cultures by forced integration or elimination of populations. That's exactly what the muslims are doing in Turkey, Sudan and South Sudan, and a plethora of other countries: eliminating competing religions and cultures.
