Just Look At What Big Muslim Populations Have Done To Illinois!

End Times Talk Radio claims to have “evidence muslims / islam our [sic] taking over every area of America”.

Muslims taking over America? There has never been a Muslim President or a Muslim Supreme Court Justice. Muslims consist of less than one percent of the members of the U.S. Congress. Less than 1 percent of the population of the USA is Muslim. So, the assertion that Muslims are taking over every area of America doesn’t make much sense. Then again, the prophecy that the End Times are perpetually, for two thousand years running, just around the corner doesn’t make much sense either.

But, let’s say that Muslims are taking America over. What then? Well, it might be good for employment.

According to the most recent Religious Congregations & Membership Study, the state with the highest per capita rate of adherence to Islam is Illinois, while the state with the lowest per capita rate of adherence to Islam is Montana.

Well, guess what? The per capita rate of homes without any working adults is two percent higher in Montana than it is in Illinois. So, it follows that…

… okay, I can’t keep this up. It doesn’t actually follow that relatively high Muslim populations cause higher rates of adult employment. Causation and correlation aren’t the same thing, and comparing two states doesn’t even lead to a correlation.

But really, just as there are no signs that Muslims are taking over the USA, there are no signs that adherents of Islam are in general wrecking the United States from the inside out. People who say differently only have fear, rather than evidence, on their side.

    With the news completely dominated by the death of Muhammad Ali, it’s bizarre that no one seems to fault Ali for becoming or being a Muslim, and that the most significant consequence of his switch from Christianity to Islam was his rejection on moral grounds to the U.S. war in Vietnam. What do you make of that?

      Objection, not rejection.

    I would rather keep all negative evidence at a distance – like in another part of the world where Muslims slaughter Christians and Jews. Okay, anyone who is not Muslim. But of course there are far more Muslims than anyone else in those other parts of the world.

      How about the places where Buddhists and Hindus kill Muslims? What about the Jews or Christians that kill Muslims? Does the existence of these people in other countries lead you to conclude that we should restrict Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, and Christians from full liberty in the USA?
