UK: Practising Muslims Will Outnumber Christians by 2035 !
Posted by antikafirphobia on May 8, 2008
IF the UK is to survive they need to drastically overhaul the Church of England (Catholics can handle their own). Second step, pray hard and pray often because things aren’t looking too good for the UK……
By 2035, there will be about 1.96 million active Muslims in Britain, compared with 1.63 million church-going Christians, according to calculations by Christian Research, a think- tank.
The figures are published in the latest in a series of reports entitled Religious Trends. The think-tank has warned that 4,000 churches could close by 2020 if congregations continue to shrink at current rates.
According to the most recent figures from the Church of England, regular Sunday, weekly and monthly attendance each fell by one per cent in 2006. Fewer than a million people attend church every Sunday.
Although at the last count there were only 1.6million Muslims living in Britain – compared to 41million Christians – experts have suggested Muslims are more likely to practise their faith.
More than half of the Muslims who responded to the 2001 census said they prayed every day, compared to 6.3 per cent of Christians who attend church services each week. Christian Research describes its aim as encouraging “change in Christian culture so that by 2010 more churches are growing”.
