Muslims Procreating Like Crazy

Catholics have traditionally been well known for using the marriage bed to create lots of new Catholics -- but they're playing second fiddle to Muslims now:
ROME, March 31 (AP/Breitbart) - The Muslim population in the world exceeded that of Catholics in 2006 for the first time in history, the Vatican daily L'Osservatore Romano reported Sunday, adding that the makeover came about as a result of higher fertility rates among Muslims than Catholics. ...

According to the report, Muslims accounted for 19.2 percent of the total world population as of 2006, while Catholics made up 17.4 percent and Christians as a whole roughly 33 percent. No specific numbers were unveiled.

The newspaper said the Islamic population is rising chiefly in developing nations, while the number of Catholics remain almost flat in European nations with some growth being seen in Latin America.
The troubling undercurrent of Muslim demographic in Europe has been well documented. It's Muslim growth in the Muslim world that worries me more, because as long as there's overpopulation and under-opportunity in the Islamic world, there will be room for radical Imams and hopeless souls who will follow them into jihad.

That's why I still believe to the neocon ideal of bettering the economic and political situation in Muslim nations, a surefire way to reduce the Muslim birthrate -- and achieve many much more important goals.
