When Italy opened its doors to Muslim migrants, they might not have considered the effects it would have on the nation's major religion. While Italy — along with the Vatican — is home to the Catholic Church, the region's Christians may soon be outnumbered by followers of Islam.
An important figure in the Catholic church has warned that everyone in Italy will ‘soon be Muslim' due to the country's ‘stupidity'.
Italian Archbishop, Monsignor Carlo Liberati, said that the growing number of Muslim migrants in Europe and increasing secularism will lead to Islam becoming the continent's foremost religion.
The Bishop Emeritus of Pompeii said: ‘In 10 years we will all be Muslims because of our stupidity. Italy and Europe live in a pagan and atheist way, they make laws that go against God and they have traditions that are proper of paganism.
‘All of this moral and religious decadence favours Islam.'
He added: ‘We have a weak Christian faith. The Church nowadays does not work well and seminaries are empty.
‘Parishes are the only thing still standing. We need a true Christian life. All this paves the way to Islam. In addition to this, they have children and we do not. We are in full decline.'
With the proliferation of Islam in Europe come the proliferation of Islamic values. While these countries may believe that they are doing a good humanitarian deed by allowing these people across their borders, they're also inviting an ideology that stands in opposition to much of which these liberal governments stand. With this announcement, those values might be the majority sooner than one might think.
