Churches to Mosques

Islam StreetChristian EmptyYou have probably heard it said that if you wish to see what the United States will look like in ten years take a look at Europe and I’m not talking about their move deeper and deeper into socialism – I’m talking about the Muslim religion growing at a rate that it will eventually be the nominate religion in Europe.

Their stated goal is to become the dominate religion in the world.

A sign of their success is that European churches are being sold and converted to mosques to accommodate their growing numbers. These conversions have been taking place at a rate two per week. The 2011 census in England and Wales indicated that 33.2 million citizens identify themselves as Christians but the facts show churches needing to close at an alarming rate. As an illustration look at these two pictures. The one on the left is Friday noon prayers (a required prayer time for Muslims weekly) vs the picture on the right. Both were taken in London – blocks away from each other. It is estimated that in twenty years there will be more active Muslims than Christian churchgoers.

The same thing is happening in Germany where Muslims have plans to convert four Lutheran churches in Hamburg to mosques. Roman Catholic churches are also suffering with low attendance and in Duisburg, Germany they recently announced plans to close four churches. Muslims have their sight set on the historic Church of Saint Peter and Paul which remains the last Catholic church in the Marcloh part of Duisburg. After an outcry from local Catholics, they decided to keep the church open and not sell. Roman Catholic and Protestant churches have been closing in Germany at an alarming rate while more than 200 mosques have been built with another 128 under construction.

Mosques are being built all over the United States in major cities and college towns.  A large majority of mosques in the United States are led by Wahhabi clerics. Wahhabism is an extreme brand of Islam practiced dominantly in Saudi Arabia. According to Muslim estimates, up to 80 percent of mosques in the U.S. are owned, operated and led by Wahhabis. Osama bin Laden, the founder of al-Qaeda joined the Wahhabi sect of Islam. It is questionable whether he stayed in that sect all his life. Karen Armstrong says that OBL, like most extremists follow Sayyid Qutb who was a leader of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood in the 1950′s and 60′s.
