Islam On The Rise In America: More Latinas Becoming Muslims

Posted by – September 25, 2006


In An Unexpected Trend, Hispanics Becoming More Islamic

As I wrote about previously, this is the religion century. Those who don’t offer clear, strong answers to life’s big questions will continue lose out to hardcore groups in churches, synagouges, and, increasingly, mosques.

Today I saw even more evidence my hypothesis is true, with this fascinating NPR report, “Latinas Choosing Islam over Catholicism.” It says Islam has 40,000 Latino converts in its ranks today, with a large percentage of them women.

The Americas will be a much, much more diverse place religiously in 50 years.

A question NPR doesn’t ask is this: will Islamicization lead to more stability, or more instability in society?
