BUT I have never said islam is the fastest growing cult in the USA.

You are wrong in that Islam is spreading in the US at a rate which alarms the US Christians. As you say later on this increase is due to immigration, legal or otherwise. That is partly true. But consider who convert to Islam. Those who have been oppressed, socially and economically. In the US Islam has a large following amongst the African Africans. In South Asia, it has a wide following amongst those who were kept socially depressed via the caste system etc. In Africa it is spreading too becuase of their poverty, or rather because of the wide gap between the haves and the have nots.

So lorne, I am not denigrating Islam but discussing how religions spread and why they spread to societies they spread to.

Re: And that is exactly what the problem is...democracy in trying to treat everyone equally permits radical musloms as well as so called moderate mosloms into the country. IMO it is not easy to separate the crazies from the sane muslims is it. And IMO france has BIG BIG problems coming with muslims.

Again, you've got it upside down.... what the problem is...democracy in trying to treat everyone equally permits Judeo-Protestant fanatics as well as so-called moderate Zionists messing around all over the country. IMO it is not easy to separate the crazies from the sane Zionists, is it? And IMO the US has BIG BIG problems coming with Judeofascists.
