A PROMINENT figure in the Catholic church has controversially suggested that everyone will “soon be Muslim” because we live in an increasingly secular society amid increased migration.
Monsignor Carlo Liberati, an Italian Archbishop, gave the warning after observing the growing number of detention centres opening up in Europe, suggesting it was a sure fire way to have the Islamic faith become mainstream.
He 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.
“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, along with the rest of Europe, has become a hotspot for immigration in the past decade.
Figures show that there were 5,014,437 foreign nationals resident in Italy as of January 1, 2015, an increase of 92,352 on the previous year.
Italy has also seen a sharp rise in the number of illegal immigrants who dock on its shores after making the dangerous boat ride from North Africa across the Mediterranean sea.
And there has been a growing number of Eastern Europeans and Romanians migrating to the country since the expansion of the European Union.
Liberati claims Italy’s desire to help other nationalities is leaving its own country’s poor people destitute.
He added: “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.
