“THIS is why Islam is making inroads in the west.
People need a religion to believe in which offers salvation and clear definitions of what is right and wrong.”
And Islam is this religion?
Aside from the nutty killings and bombing commited by radical Islamofascists, Islam presents a benign face towards new converts. It opposes homosexuality and other sexual perversions, it offers a cleary defined code of what is morall acceptable and what is not, and it makes no pretence of attempting to compromise its values.
YOU and I are aware of its many intrinsic failings - the intolernace, cruelty, inequality, violence, atavism, etc. which are ALSO spawned by the Koran. But THAT is probably presented in a positive light to new recruits when they compare their moral “values” with those of the degenerate nominal Christians who have allowed their morality to be eroded by a secural “humanist” state.
The proof is in the pudding. More non-Muslims convert to Islam in non-Islamic countries than Muslim immigrants convert to Christianity.
And I blame this, in part, on the lack of clear, definitive moral leadership on the part of Christian churches which feed their congregants a pablum of moral relativism.
Years ago, Christian churches spoke out against homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, etc. They supported patriotism and law and order. Today that is reversed.
