From Giulio Meotti at Gatestone
According to it, between 2010 and 2015, the Muslim population increased by more than 150 million people to 1.8 billion.
In Europe, how many Christians have been “lost”? Between 2010 and 2015, “deaths outnumbered births by nearly 6 million during this brief period”.
At this pace, Christianity will vanish in Europe.
In the same time frame, in most European countries — including Britain, Germany, Italy and Russia — Christian deaths outnumbered Christian births. “In Germany alone, for example, there were an estimated 1.4 million more Christian deaths than births between 2010 and 2015, a pattern that is expected to continue across much of Europe in the decades ahead”, Pew discovered. There are clear patterns of demographic trends, church attendance, closures of parishes and the declining number of priests.
These patterns are why Islamic leaders, such as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, have been waging a demographic war against Europe. “Have not just three but five children”, Erdogan said to Muslims in the old continent. “You are the future of Europe”. … More.
Reality check: There is no reason to show the slightest sympathy for people who demand protection for their “culture” but refuse to have children for lifestyle or ideological reasons, kill them in abortions, and sneer at Uncool people who do have children.
If the Muslims simply refrain from those practices, they will inherit Europe, and North America too, simply in the course of nature. And there is no reason to complain about it either if you are “pro-choice.”
As Mark Steyn puts it, the future belongs to those who show up for it.
