Fact or Fiction? As 500 Churches Close In London, 423 New Mosques Are Opened.
Don't Believe All You read Or Hear!
The creeping Islamization of London is almost complete, with hundreds of official sharia courts operating in the capital and mosques opening where famous Christian churches have stood for many hundreds of years.
Since 2001, 500 London churches of all denominations have been turned into private homes. During the same period, British mosques have been proliferating. Between 2012 and 2014, the proportion of Britons who identify themselves as Anglicans fell from 21% to 17%, a decrease of 1.7 million people, while, according to a survey conducted by the respected NatCen Social Research Institute, the number of Muslims has grown by almost a million. Churchgoers are declining at a rate that within a generation, their number will be three times lower than that of Muslims who go regularly to mosque on Friday.
In a Gatestone Institute report, The Hyatt United Church was bought by the Egyptian community to be converted to a mosque. St Peter’s Church has been converted into the Madina Mosque. The Brick Lane Mosque was built on a former Methodist church. Not only buildings are converted, but also people. The number of converts to Islam has doubled; often they embrace radical Islam, as with Khalid Masood, the terrorist who struck Westminster.
Demographically, Britain has been acquiring an increasingly Islamic face, in places such as Birmingham, Bradford, Derby, Dewsbury, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Luton, Manchester, Sheffield, Waltham Forest and Tower Hamlets. In 2015, an analysis of the most common name in England showed it was Mohammed, including spelling variations such as Muhammad and Mohammad. In Birmingham, the second-largest British city, where many jihadists live and orchestrate their attacks, an Islamic minaret dominates the sky. There are petitions to allow British mosques to call the Islamic faithful to prayer on loudspeakers three times a day.
A popular Uk rag published photographs of a church and a mosque a few meters from each other in the heart of London. At the Church, designed to accommodate 1,230 worshipers, only 12 people gathered to celebrate Mass. At the nearby mosque it was a different story. there was terrible overcrowding. their small room for about 30 people, had over100. On Friday, the faithful must pour into the streets to pray. Given the current trends, Christianity in England is becoming a relic, while Islam will be the religion of the future.
London is also full of sharia courts. There are officially 100. The advent of this parallel judicial system has been made possible thanks to the British Arbitration Act and the system of Alternative Dispute Resolution. These new courts are based on the rejection of the inviolability of human rights: the values of freedom and equality that are the basis of English Common Law. One of Britain’s leading judges, Sir James Munby, said that Christianity no longer influences the courts and these must be multicultural, which means more Islamic. Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, and Chief Justice Lord Phillips also suggested that British law should “incorporate” elements of sharia law. The British cultural establishment is rapidly capitulating to Islamic fundamentalists in accepting their demands.
By 2020, estimates are that the number of Muslims attending prayers will reach at least 683,000 and the number of Christians attending weekly Mass will drop to 679,000. While nearly half of British Muslims are under the age of 25, a quarter of Christians are over 65.
This story is false and made up to scare the public. The YourNewsWire.com article was meant to enflame fears that Muslims in London are starting to outnumber Christians and that Christians (or their culture), will soon be displaced. While the overall numbers are only changing slowly, the actual number of churches increased between 2008 and 2013 and is expected to continue between 2013 and 2020.
Why is this? The answer comes in two broad ways. There are 600 more Pentecostal churches in the UK than 5 years ago, the large majority being new black churches, of which the RCCOG is the largest denomination.
The Black Majority Churches’ [BMCs] “explosion” has been significant, especially in Greater London where of the 700 new churches which began between 2005 and 2012, at least 400 were BMCs. The Redeemed Christian Church of God [RCCOG] alone has started 296 new churches in the UK in the last 5 years, the largest number for any single denomination.
The figure also doesn’t account for how many churches in London have opened their doors since 2001.Dr Peter Bierley, a leading expert on British religious statistics and author of the report UK Church Statistics, found that London saw 700 new between churches 2005 and 2012, and that the total number of churches in the United Kingdom actually increased between 2008 and 2013. Bierley predicts that there will be 40,080 churches in England by 2020.
