    No, my point is there's nothing wrong with the Muslim population growing, respecting people's beliefs etc.
    There's nothing immediately wrong with it growing, but the long term problems are that Muslims tend to hold very conservative views on social issues and in particular, homosexuality. The UK has become an incredibly tolerant country socially over the past decade, but an increase in Islamic beliefs will inevitably lead to more homophobia, and quite possibly more violence.

    It wouldn't be so bad if British Muslims were more adjusted to our culture, like they are on the continent (German and French muslims were significantly more liberal on homosexuality, abortion and divorce when compared to British muslims), but the trouble is that they're not, and when the muslim population grows at such a high rate, that does pose a problem.

    There's nothing wrong with having more muslims, but there is something wrong with the consequences it may have if they don't adjust to our culture.

    the article discusses what will happen to british women and homosexuals in the future.

    what do you think?



    also http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/t...amisation.html if youre interested
    Quite saddened by this article. I have read the Daily Telegraph at times (more of a The Times person, myself), this article certainly surprises me.

    Muslims only make up less than 2%. Even then, what is the problem? Why should we care whether a person is Jewish, Christian, Muslim or even a whale worshipper? It is about who they are as a person.

    you obviously didnt read it properly then, it wasnt about islam as a religion, it was about the adherance to islam in british muslims.

    and only make up less than 2%? firstly 3.2% 10 years ago, secondly this isnt about size, this is about the alarming rate of GROWTH of that percent. you shouldnt have trouble understanding the difference mate

    now they make up 5.1% of our population, 2% every 10 years? thats worrying.

    Yes, I see your point, however, Islam is against violence. I, myself am a Muslim but I have many homosexual friends, I would err judge them on their sexuality, in fact I have a Muslim friend who is bisexual. I can see your point but homosexuality is not just a problem some Muslims may have, many non-Muslims have caused violence against homosexuals, it's a problem some people have universally, regardless of their religion. Islam also accepts divorce, it may be against abortion generally but so are other religions, in some circumstances abortion is actually accepted, no Muslim I know would ever judge anyone, or cause violence against other because of their views.

    I agree there is a few nutters who do not follow Islam and preach their own twisted hatred.

    Don't generalise.

    So a few Muslims are having babies like other people. The population of the UK is growing.

    I am sure Muslims only make up 2%. How did 5.1% come about?

    Why is the growth alarming?

    Like I say, I don't care who is muslim, christian or jewish or a whale worshipper? Who cares what religion a person follows?

    you ignorant prick

    my dad got hired by a company here to work so he was called here and he still works for that company.

    if all, pakis, indians and blacks went back youd be without skilled hard working people lets n ot forget mostof your doctors in hospitals are foreign polish,pakistani,indian,african and arab.

    and as for curry isn't that like the second favbpurite food of britain after fish and chips.

    If the point of this thread is to point out the dramatic increase in population, then let me say that Muslims are not allowed to use contraception so each time they have sex: they have a baby. Simple.

    I would have thought a lot of Muslims being socially conservative would be natural supporters of the Telegraph and the Tories. But they seem to be at odds with them but they both support things like against gays, pro marriage, family values and religious observance.
