Sounds like all the athiests have a lot to look forward to... and you thought the Jehovah's Witness were bad.


Lol, we're not bound by a whole lot like judaism and islam are, we have a lighter yoke. No murder, no sexual immoralities, no consuming food or drink dedicated to idols, no consuming blood. We can eat pork products all we want if we give thanks it is purified.

Now where'd i put my ham sandwich...

Oh I love these scare mongering stories read by idiots who can't pause long enough to have some common sense before screaming about it!

It's the fastest growing religion because all others are failing. People are giving up on all major religions, including Christianity. This is not new and has been going on in all civilized nations for decades.

As people wake up to the hatred, bigotry, delusions and general insanity of organized religion, Christianity increases to collapse in upon itself.

Therefore, while all others are declining, Islam could be gaining one person a month and it would still make the headline of "fastest growing".

Now consider all the people coming to your country looking for work and safety after being bombed out of their own country by NATO, the USA, UK and the "coalition" of the "coerced" and you might start to understand the propaganda you are spreading.

There maybe something to this - according to prof ilyas ba yunus (apparently he’s a Muslim scholar) 75% of new joiners (submitters or whatever they should be called) leave after 2-3 years

Maybe a number of ex-christians are giving islam a try before giving up on the whole religious thing?

People eat the truth up like a Sunday meal! No one being forced to Islam in America, so why are so many people converting? Inshalla!
How many people are leaving, after refusing all religions? I personally do not know any ex-Muslims.

Not even close.

They do NOT preach a trinity god. Also - Islam is really obsessed with sex, both on earth in the afterlife, whereas Christianity and the Christian afterlife is definately NOT.

Islam and Christianity are two very different religions. Different 'gods' and different afterlifes.


I do not believe this, they come from the same source

over here in Europe many Muslims dropped the religion thing when they came here and I actually do know some ex-muslims, one told me it was believed that Islam would sweep Europe in conversions but that they (muslims) got a disappointment in that the average European is completely uninterested to religion – he said it was the one thing they weren’t expecting

"Christianity" is failing for two reasons:
1. Christians are heading Revelation's warning to come out of Babylon. The churches have been infested by the doctrines of demons.
2. The descendants of Christians have been brainwashed to believe in occultism, greed, sex, science, extraterrestrials and any other false 'gods'. Sin hardens the heart, and hearts in love with the above WILL REJECT God.

When you wake up to the realisation that the descendants of Israel have FORSAKEN their God for lies and deceit, hoodwinked by those who despise Christ Jesus, then the fear of the Lord comes into your life. Then you understand that our country is being given over to those who rule the rest of the world in squalor, hunger and trouble. The days are numbered, the End is known from the Beginning. Evil certainly can see the writing on the walls, and have done everything possible to turn a society once predominantly under the laws of God to one under the laws of Satan that redefines "good as evil" and "evil as good". They know judgement is coming, and the rise of Islamism in a once largely Christian populace is entirely being discounted by a populace indoctrinated in the meme of "tolerance". Islam isn't go to show you tolerance like those "judgemental" Christians that you so despise. God judges His House first - US. Many kill His firstborn for money and career, many despise His Saviour, many deem abominations in His eyes as normal, natural and healthy, many commit spiritual adultery by allowing foreign 'gods' into our lands, many blasphemy His name numerous times daily, many defile themselves sexually. Oh, but as many have been convinced that He doesn't exist, they have NO understanding of what His judgements entail and to whom they pertain - His judgements start with His House. He calls on you and everyone to Repent - to have a change of mind and ways from the world of darkness to His Kingdom of Light. You want to chastise people for "scaremongering" about Islam, when in actuality all can see that they live in darkness to a god that demands repetitive worship and in desolate places where there is no Light. Meanwhile, our country given to the Israelites hundreds of years ago as they grew to numbers like the sand of the sea, now is under the sway of "tolerance" that deems all need accept it and not be afraid of change. Yes, our country has been a melting pot for centuries, but Islam doesn't "melt". Most other immigrants melted into our beliefs and morals. Times have changed as our leaders insist that WE do the melting now, not those they are bringing in. Islam doesn't compromise - and to all of our detriment, the simple and honest truth is that because "Christianity" falsely learned to do so, we are where we are.

The propaganda that you espouse has convinced you that you MUST be tolerant, but what you don't realise is that poison is leading YOU to do the changing - not a group like Islam.

Also - Islam is really obsessed with sex, both on earth in the afterlife, whereas Christianity and the Christian afterlife is definately NOT.

Where do you think the Catholic "celibacy" requirement comes from?

Catholic interpretation of scripture - priestly celebacy
1 Corinthians 7:8 it's better to remain unmarried when you serve the Lord so you don't have family distractions. That's hardly the same as what Islam says about sex. Islam and Sex .


the hush-hush attitude about biological realities of conception.

Onanism. Old testament. (Not that it matters - I disagree with their interpretation)
A fella got in trouble because he 'spilled his seed' instead of getting his new wife pregnant.

Get real, please, before you get out your arsenal of rolly-eyes and lolz and blue head-shaking tools and denial and start shoving Chatecism links down everyone's throats.

:shk: Perhaps if you'd actually read the catechism, along with the Qu'ran, you could educate yourself so you wouldn't be saying such silly things. :shk:


I put all those rolly-eyes and shaking heads in just for you.


Again ... the Christian faiths are NOT hung up on sex any where's close to the way Islam is. And in the Christian religion there is no sex in the afterlife (people live like the angels - not getting married and not having children etc etc), whereas the Islamic faith has an unending orgy of pleasure for the men who are 'serviced' by the supposedly lucky females who get into paradise. (being a whore for eternity, unendingly 'servicing' men, doesn't seem like much of a paradise for women to me).

The Islamic afterlife is full of sex. It's bogged down with the physical.
The Christian afterlife is devoid of sex. It's etherial.

BIG DIFFERENCE.

Muhammed and Jesus do NOT come from the same source. Jesus claims to be the God-Head. He is God incarnate according to Christians. Muhammed was just a human who was a thief and a murderer (it's well documented) who made up a religion by taking bits and pieces from other religions to create a new 'religion' with political control.

Jesus says 'turn the other cheek'.
Muhammed says 'kill anyone who gets in your way'.
Jesus says 'give to the poor'
Muhammed said 'let's go steal from that caravan'

Jesus and Muhammed have nothing in common. Not a single thing.

We have been fighting the same thing here in my neck of the woods, still all we got accomplished was the selling of alcohol in restaurants on Sunday because the sport bars and Sunday football season.

Still fighting for the sell of alcohol regardless.

Now Atlanta and neighboring areas are another story.

BTW what I have seen is a big growing number of Indians (from India and Latinos "I am Puertorrican") in my neck of the woods, this has been going on for the last 10 years steadily.

I have to point out that I am not a religious church worshiper I do not support organized religion of any kind or form.

That was a lovely snide response, FF! Just what I expected!!
I was not asking for a compare-and-contrast essay between the two different versions of heaven. I know the Christian heaven is not the same as the Muslim heaven.

I was referring to your statement that

. the Christian faiths are NOT hung up on sex any where's close to the way Islam is.

The "Christian faiths" do not hold sex out as a reward, no. Instead they wish it never happened. They consider it unclean and taboo. Despite the fact that Christ was fine with it.

The "Christians", over the centuries, have consistently oppressed women, made sexual activity of any kind "dirty", and created PRUDES. Despite the fact the Jesus adored women, had a lover, and honored his mother...

The "Christian faith" that Paul started included plenty of WOMEN as early "outpost leaders."

nm...you always come on these boards with your "supreme" knowledge, complaining about why a topic is in this forum when it belongs OT, yet say you want the whole forum to disappear. You think you know so much. And you're so unladylike while letting us all know. What a turn off to Catholicism. Terrible ambassadorship and stewardship.

I want no part of Catholicism or any organized Christian faith, and I don't want any part of Islam, either. Both are twisted perversions of a rumor that was supposed to be only for the Israeli tribes anyway. None of my business. Thank God.

Fortunately, we this generation had been educated enough, to ALWAYS critically analyze every data, more so here on ATS where we leave no stone unturned. Stand in the light, and fear nothing. Repress the light, and one will forever hide in the shadows of hate and ultimate doom

BRAVO!!

I wonder every day how hard it must be to keep repressing that light...especially on the religion forums. It takes a lot of energy to continue to be unaware and ignorant these days. Go figure. Those are the people that religion was "made" for, though. You'd think we'd have progressed past any need for religious dogma at all...but no. Not yet.
sigh

Thanks to racasan...for pointing out that yeah, NONE is the fastest growing. And should remain so.
If we want to survive as a species.

There are, actually! Bab and Bahá’u’lláh...
The Bahai faith is one of the few that make any sense at all, especially if you want to do Abrahamic-based "religion". Nice temples, too.
At least they have the message right.


The Faith’s Founder was Bahá’u’lláh, a Persian nobleman from Tehran who, in the mid-nineteenth century, left a life of princely comfort and security and, in the face of intense persecution and deprivation, brought to humanity a stirring new message of peace and unity.

Bahá’u’lláh claimed to be nothing less than a new and independent Messenger from God. His life, work, and influence parallel that of Abraham, Krishna, Moses, Zoroaster, Buddha, Christ, and Muhammad. Bahá’ís view Bahá’u’lláh as the most recent in this succession of divine Messengers.

The essential message of Bahá’u’lláh is that of unity. He taught that there is only one God, that there is only one human race, and that all the world’s religions represent stages in the revelation of God’s will and purpose for humanity. In this day, Bahá’u’lláh said, humanity has collectively come of age. As foretold in all of the world’s scriptures, the time has arrived for the uniting of all peoples into a peaceful and integrated global society. “The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens,” He wrote.

Off topic personal attack ... against T&C. TRY to stay on topic.
And as far as being 'unlady like' for stating facts ...
You are a hoot ...
complaining about the 'sexist' Catholic church .. and then whining that I don't
fit into your version of a proper gender role.



AS I WAS SAYING - ON TOPIC
Christianity and Islam are at polar opposites. They are NOT from the 'same source'.
Their versions of the afterlife give proof of that.
One afterlife is physical and sexual. The other afterlife is etherial and devoid of sex.
If both were from the same source, the afterlifes would be the same.
Or at the very least, they would at least be comparable. However, they are not.

The fastest growing religion in America is atheism...

And new-born Christians and born-again'ers outnumber Islamic converts and immigrants
at least ten to one...

So ..this puts Islam at least third on the list. The OP's article is wrong
