In Europe, a Vatican official fears the Islamization of the continent. Father Piero Gheddoâ€™s suggested solution is for Christians to have more children.
Wouldnâ€™t it make sense to stop Muslim immigration? Funny how that strategy is not even mentioned.
Europe is becoming â€?Islamisedâ€™ warns Vatican official as he urges Christians to have more children, Daily Mail, September 8, 2010In addition, photos like the one below suggest that the Islo-newbies are not exactly friendly to Western values.
European Christians should have more children to stop the continent becoming â€?Islamisedâ€™, a senior Vatican official has suggested.
Father Piero Gheddo said the low birth rate of indigenous Europeans combined with a huge wave of Muslim migrants with large families would â€™sooner or laterâ€™ see Europe dominated by Islam.
Italian Father Gheddo is a highly respected figure from the Vaticanâ€™s Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions, a society of missionaries.
He blamed Christians for failing to live up to their own beliefs and creating a â€?religious vacuumâ€™ which was being filled by Islam.
â€?The challenge must be taken seriously,â€™ he said.
â€?Certainly from a demographic point of view, as it is clear to everyone that Italians are decreasing by 120,000 or 130,000 persons a year because of abortion and broken families â€“ while among the more than 200,000 legal immigrants a year in Italy, more than half are Muslims and Muslim families, which have a much higher level of growth.â€™
He added: â€?If we consider ourselves a Christian country, we should return to the practice of Christian life, which would also solve the problem of empty cradles.â€™
