Muslims Now Outnumber World's Catholics

"For the first time in history, we are no longer at the top: Muslims have overtaken us," Monsignor Vittorio Formenti said in an interview with the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano. Formenti compiles the Vatican's yearbook.

He said that Catholics accounted for 17.4 percent of the world population — a stable percentage — while Muslims were at 19.2 percent.

    I hope it won't translate to more MUSLIM MILITANTS, those as_holes who insists God wants them to murder people in his name.

    they still haven't outnumbered the total Christians, though... protestant, born-again, erm... iglesia...

    guess that's still cool

    Seriously, though, the Church needs an upgrade! It's like all the other religions is now using iBooks and the Church still goes hardcore over the PDP-7...

    Oh well, it's just that the total Christians are not exactly monolithic, you know, like Ireland and Northern Ireland. But then, Islam is not exactly like Iraq, either, where the Shias will go head-to-head with the Sunnis.
    :) :lol: :D

    But yes, total Christians still outnumber the rest of the world's religions at 33%!
    :love: :) :naughty:

    Dubai, yes, it is progressive. But Saudi Arabia?

    Yes, Islan is divided between the Sunnis and the rest of Islam. The Sunnis were the original Islam. The Caliphate, which was the true successor to Mohammed, had problems with the Third Caliph who started the Shi'a branch and the rest is history, I think.
