Of course, it is true that not every Muslim is a terrorist and I would never treat my fellow Muslim New Zealanders differently or badly because Islamic terrorists follow the same religion that they do. I will, however, comment on their impact on our society because when Christian/secular countries have a Muslim population time after time it has an effect on that country.
Muslims in the west are outbreeding Christians and other non-Muslims due to their large families and multiple wives.This impacts western countries culture, politics and value system because Muslims have a markedly different belief system and values to the West and their religion encourages them not to integrate and to recruit non-Muslims to their ranks. Just as historically Christian immigrants turned cultures into Christian cultures, Muslims are now changing Christian and secular societies into Muslim ones. The example most personal to me is Lebanon, the home of my Christian maternal Great-grandparents. It was a Christian country when they left it to immigrate to New Zealand but today it is a Muslim country.
People who disagree with me will say that I am scaremongering and that what I am saying is not factual. Look at the statistics below and come to your own conclusions. I am not going to be impacted too much in my lifetime but it is my children and their children that I am concerned about.
As of 2010, Christianity was by far the world’s largest religion, with an estimated 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31%) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. Islam was second, with 1.6 billion adherents, or 23% of the global population.
