Too bad there is no breakdown on Islam's 21% as there is with Christians. I would like to know how many Shites vs Sunis, but they are right on our tails

I would like to share this video on Muslim Demographics and how the Muslim population will grow (and is growing) if this continues at this rate:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-3X5hIFXYU

I think these statistics should be an eye opener to us, Catholics, and why the Muslim religion is getting dominant and increasing around the world, especially in Europe today.

Many Catholics did not heed the words of Pope Paul VI on "Humanae Vitae" or haven't even heard of it (please read it) and when the Muslim conquer Europe we better don't say "Why God has abandoned us?" when it is us, many Catholics who have abandoned Him and there are the consequences of the betrayal, selfishness of a sinful society.

It is important to keep in mind that, for the most part, when Muslim people emigrate to another country, they don't follow or fully embrace the culture of the other country but faithfully preserve and keep their own traditional customs and, therefore, the success of their increasing religion. While when Catholic people emigrate to another country, their family children, for the most part, don't keep the Catholic traditions of their parents but fall into the secular society of the country they have arrived.

This video is nothing against Muslims, it only shows statistics.

I'm surprised at how low the Jewish statistic is. I thought it would be much more than that. There are more atheists in the world than Jews, according to this. Scary.
