Europe Will Become an Islamic State in Ten Years - Archbishop
'Everyone will be Muslim because of our stupidity': Catholic leader says Europe will become an Islamic state because of the migrant crisisBy Simon Holmes For Mailonline

An important figure in the Catholic church has warned that everyone in Italy will 'soon be Muslim' due to the country's 'stupidity'.
Italian Archbishop, Monsignor Carlo Liberati, said that the growing number of Muslim migrants in Europe and increasing secularism will lead to Islam becoming the continent's foremost religion.
The Bishop Emeritus of Pompeii said: 'In 10 years we will all be Muslims because of our stupidity. Italy and Europe live in a pagan and atheist way, they make laws that go against God and they have traditions that are proper of paganism.'
Italian Archbishop Monsignor Carlo Liberati talks at a seminar. He claims Muslim immigration
and secularism will see Italy become a non-Christian country
'All of this moral and religious decadence favours Islam.'
He added: 'We have a weak Christian faith. The Church nowadays does not work well and seminaries are empty.
'Parishes are the only thing still standing. We need a true Christian life. All this paves the way to Islam. In addition to this, they have children and we do not. We are in full decline.'
Italy has become a prime destination for Muslim migrants with some 330,000 people from Africa, the Middle East and Asia arriving by sea over the past two years.
Many are fleeing war and cross the Mediterranean sea from North Africa via a dangerous boat ride.
The Vatican will not survive in a Muslim state!
The number of Muslims residing in Italy has skyrocketed from 2,000, during the 1970s, to over two million at the end of 2015, according to official Italian statistics.
That's an increase of 1000 times in 40 years. If that is not drastically curbed then Muslims in Italy will number 2 billion by 2055. The population of Italy is just 60 million souls. Now I see why the Archbishop is saying 10 years. Native Italians will be outnumbered before 2030, and we know what happens when Muslims are in the majority, there is no room for anyone else, especially the centre of the Catholic faith. The Vatican will not survive in a Muslim state!
Figures also show the country has 5,014,437 foreign nationals residents as of January 1, 2015, an increase of 92,352 on the previous year.
And Liberati claims the increasing number of new arrivals, including Eastern Europeans and Romanians migrating to the country since the expansion of the European Union, have impinged on the quality of life for native Italians.
He said: 'We help without delay those coming from outside and we forget many poor and old Italians who are eating from the trash. We need policies that take care of Italians first: our young people and the unemployed.
'I am a protester. If I were not a priest, I'd be out there demonstrating in the squares. What is the point of so many migrants that instead of thanking for the food we give them, they just throw it, spend hours with their cell phones and even organise riots?'
The Arch bishop even chided the fact the Catholic church donates money to the recent migrants.
