A GROWING number of Scots are converting to Islam – with the majority young women.
Glasgow Central Mosque alone is now seeing more than 200 Scots a year ‘revert’. Due to the rising number of Scots finding Islam, mosques across the country are also setting up support groups for new ‘reverts’. Many are fearful of abuse and intimidation.
Reversion is the preferred term within Islam for those who ‘convert’ – as Muslims believe everyone is born believing in Allah. Click here to read more about Islam Awareness Week
Our Lord suffered and died on the cross, so that we could be saved and come to knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:4)
Yet, today we have Catholic schools not only refusing to teach the truths of the Catholic Faith, but actively promoting falsehood – the falsehood that there is another religion that is equally pleasing to God.
At the same time as Catholic priests, bishops and so-called educators are dumbing down the Faith to make it more palatable to the young (and, no doubt, salve their own bad consciences) they are pushing a religion which has “demanding” for its middle name. For, the strict fasting laws and dress code are no barrier to the converts who are flooding into Islam. And little wonder, since they have been given a captive audience in at least one Catholic school brought to my attention, to present their religious beliefs and practices in the most positive way. When will the Scottish Catholic Education Service host a “Catholic Awareness Week” in schools across the country – non-denominational, Jewish, Muslim? You kidding?
Where are the parents in all of this? Where are the senior management? Head-Teachers? Chaplains? Bishops?
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
