Mexican Catholics find God in Islam

Islam has increased its appeal among Catholics seeking spiritual salvation elsewhere.

For almost five centuries Catholicism has been the dominant religion in Mexico. And a small yet growing group of converts are seeking spiritual salvation in Islam. In fact, Pew estimates Mexico will be home to 126,000 Muslims by 2030, up from 111,000 in 2010.

There is not much difference between Catholicism & Islam except Catholics believe in a triune God & Muslims believe in one God, the same God as Abraham, Isaac & Jacob.  However both religions have proved throughout history to be very violent indeed - no love of one’s fellow man.  Jesus said, “You heard it said to love your neighbour & to hate your enemy.  But I give you a new command to love your enemy, to pray for those persecuting you, to turn the other cheek, in order to prove yourselves sons of God.”  Sermon on the Mount, Matthew chapters 5-7, Holy Bible.
