More numerous than Muslims

This Associated Press article
says that the Vatican newspaper said this today:

"Islam has surpassed Roman Catholicism
as the world's largest religion."

I don't know about you but I join my Roman Catholic brothers and sisters declaring that we followers of Christ still outnumber our Islamic friends.. if anyone is counting :)


  1. Yer darn tootin we outnumber them! And we have to pray for our tribe to ever increase, to spread the Gospel and Jesus' peace to all the world.

    You can't depend on the AP to get religion right. Their position is that valid religious faith makes Al Queda kill and that people are mindless robots in the face of religion, etc.

  2. More information available: the AP did get it wrong, and the figures are easily disproved.

    See this link for some good statistical info:

  3. Awesome site, I hadn't come across earlier in my searches!
    Carry on the good work!

  4. Thanks for sharing the link, but unfortunately it seems to be down... Does anybody have a mirror or another source? Please reply to my post if you do!

    I would appreciate if a staff member here at could post it.
