I hate to bring this up right before Christmas but…Europe is doomed.

A Sociology professor at the Catholic University of Louvain (Belgium), Felice Dassetto has published a new book entitled “The Iris and the Crescent” and he’s saying that Islam is well on it’s way to becoming the most practiced religion in Europe, and will soon eclipse Christianity, according to the Examiner.com.

I’m just wondering – with Muslim’s infamous tolerance for all things Christian and especially their love for the Pope, I’m wondering how the Vatican will fare in a Muslim dominated Europe.

As cited in YNetNews, the number of Muslims has tripled over the past 30 years, all the while, fully 1/3d of all European children will be born to Muslim families by 2025. Check out this top ten list of doom:

1. Islam is the most practiced religion in the United Kingdom.
2. In London, more Muslims attend mosques on Friday than do Christians churches on Sunday.
3. The Oude Kerk, the oldest church in the city of Amsterdam, where the Kings of Holland were crowned, is now a museum.
4. The only “church” in the largest Dutch city that is crowded is the church of Scientology, a six-story building in the thick of the city center.
5. Only 7% of Dutch Catholics now go to Sunday Mass and 16% of children are baptized.
6. In Austria, which was 90% Catholic in the 20th Century, Islam will be the majority religion among Austrians aged under 15 by 2050.
7. The French case also shows that the often exaggerated “Eurabia” threat is more a quality phenomenon of religious attendance than of demographic takeover.
8. In France, there are now more Islamic mosques being build – and more frequently so – than Catholic churches, and there are more practicing Muslims than practicing Catholics in the country.
9. Overall, the total number of mosques in France has already doubled to more than 2,000 in the last 10 years.
10. The best known French Islamic leader, Dalil Boubakeur, Rector of the Great Mosque of Paris, recently suggested that the total number of mosques should double yet again, to 4,000, to meet the growing demand.

I’m thinking the Swiss guard is going to have its hands full in the decades to come. Alls I’m sayin’.
