So, first they abandoned Catholicism for protestantism and now abandoning protestantism for Islam? Color me skeptical. Chiapas has population of five million — maybe a few thousand Muslims out of that? They’ve got a long way to go to unseat the Christians and Christian/Indian-religion hybrids. These people are not secular unlike Europeans.

You forgot the first step, where they were coerced into Catholicism by conquering armies of frenchmen and spaniards.

Really, you think it is the same people?

Chiapas is still 67% Catholic, with many moving to Protestantism, and the article that this article links to, says that there are only 4,000 Muslims in all of Mexico.

The 'Frontpage' article cut off the second sentence from the Isreali source they were using, """The Muslim missionaries are very active there," he said. "It's hard to know exactly how many people have converted to Islam over the past few years." Official data suggests that Mexico is home to some 4,000 Muslims – a fraction in a country whose population numbers 115 million.""

wherever men are given religeous "rights" to kill, beat, rape, enslave women in general, half the population, its an easy sell....

just like Muslims...just like the beginnings of Mormonism.....

I expect the same from many American men...give them a chance to hold women as pure property withouts rights, you have islam....

wherever and whenever women are enslaved, its back to the stone age for that society....

glad I'll be dead by the time it hits this country really hard....30-40 yrs....but my poor children and grandchildren.....

Lord....save us....
