  • Is this making some christians nervous? That they may not be the majority?

  • Where are you getting that statistic? Christianity still leads in the world religions with 2.1 billion followers (combining all the branches like Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox, etc.)

  • Why must it always be a competition? We are all out for the same ultimate goal. Who cares how someone else gets there. If you are true to your Christianity (or any other faith you belong to) it is not yours to judge. God (or, enter your own supreme being here) is the one and only Judge.

  • Nothing? Am I supposed to feel something about it?

    Islam is a beautiful faith that I deeply admire and respect - I have a deep affection for it, even as a Christian. Honestly, if more Christians actually understood Islam I doubt it would be as ill-perceived as it is...

  • I can't help but wonder what answers you'd be getting if you'd put this in P&CE instead of religion, btw
