Islam Rising, Christianity Declining in United Kingdom
Britain’s ancient connection to Christianity is fading fast as Muslims have emigrated to Britain in droves. The 2011 census reveals that Christianity is plummeting 50% faster than had been thought previously. Within ten years only a minority in Britain will call themselves Christians.
Almost one in every ten Britons under 25 is now a Muslim.
Although last year the 2011 census was estimated to show the number of English and Welsh citizens who said they were Christians fell by 10%, or 4.1 million, that figure counted the 1.2 foreign born Christians who had emigrated to Britain. There were, in reality, 5.3 less British Christians, a decline or 15%.
In the same time period, Muslims in England and Wales grew 75%, which included 600,000 more foreign-born Muslims.
