No,,,that can’t be right. I read the news and all. We have Humma Weiner beside Hillary, a moslem presidente, Grover Norquist with all his moslem ties, general Allen saying Salami Salamii Baloney all over AFghan TV, and we support every moslem nutball that wants to overthrow a stable government.

I figure we must be about 40 percent moslem or so.

Would you care to live in a country with 10% muslims? 20%? More than 20%? Of course you wouldn’t (assuming you’re an infidel). So why have any?

When you have Western civilization basically kissing their murderous Muslim asses......makes you wonder how so few can control so many out of intimidation.

Maybe it’s time we learn the lesson and turn the tables on these filthy Baal worshipers.

Being a cult, Mormonism is different, with them you are either in or out, only a percentage qualify to be members of the elaborate temples because membership requires a mandatory 10% turning over of your income, which makes you eligible for a higher place in heaven, with the likelihood of becoming the God of your own planet.

Lesser Mormons go to regular Mormon buildings, and Mormons who become indifferent, are excommunicated, Bishop Romney used to personally excommunicate weak Mormons.

We’d have “Sharia-only” areas all over the place if we had that high of a percentage of Mohammedans. Also, we’d be hearing lots of 5-am Adhans, and have lots of Islamic TV pounding out the propaganda . . .

The excommunication is mostly an intimidation tactic. When they came by threatening to ex communicate a relative of mine she said “Where do I sign?” . After that they only came by to offer something. Certainly better than the Islamic way of handling dissent, they would have killed her.

“1.7 percent identified as Jewish”

And of those, only 41% say religion is important in their lives? Yet we are given credit...for being able to swing entire elections. Go figure.

That figure will change radically over the next 25 years. Orthodox Jews are having 6.5 children per family, while Reform, Conservative and secular Jews are aborting, turning gay and intermarrying.

.06%? seems like BS . I see a lot of Muslims and the majority of cab drivers seem to be Muslims.

Gallup is right in line with Pew Research (who has kept up with this for a few decades now). Pew Research shows it at 0.8% Muslim, with it being 1.7% Muslim in the year 2030 - with three growth factors, or (1) immigration, (2) births and (3) conversions.

Various European nations are at from 5% to 10% right now - with several of them demographically turning into Muslim-controlled countries within a few decades.

They’re saying 6/10ths of ONE PERCENT ... and NOT 6/100ths of ONE PERCENT. And this figure is definitely within the ballpark of Pew Research’s numbers which show it at 0.8% (i.e., 8/10ths of ONE PERCENT) ... and projections for 1.7% in the year 2030.

You asked — “Islam isn’t a cult?”

By Christian definition - ALL RELIGIONS which don’t adhere to the basic, foundational and historic doctrines of Christianity - are ALL CULT GROUPS. That’s the working definition for a CULT GROUP - per Christianity!

This particular definition is not the definition used in general society or in the newspapers - but per CHRISTIANITY!

Yeah I know what it was , typo. Still too low imo. Islam is pure evil and lies , they lie lie lie. I can bet a lot that it is much higher than .6%. Muslims lie and want to remain hidden. here it’s almost all the cab drivers, and convenience store owners, pakistanis,somalis, palestinians, morocons, endless.
