Whenever JamesR pontificates about Indian history, he always cites that one author.  It's like when wgw finds a way to introduce St Epiphanius' Panarion into a conversation.

I highly recommend In Orthodoxy Space Aliens are Demons by Fr. Seraphim Rose.

. The difference is, that if a lapsed Christian decides to get his religion seriously and become "radical", he will become a monk

James, you may be correct, however "history" may swirl into another direction. As secular Europe thrashes the void will be filled by a natural instinct for humans to be "religious" or find a cause greater than themselves.

LenInSebastopol and I agree for once? It can't be.

So would any of you gentlemen think that Islam is filling a void in a post-christian west?
Absolutely.

Muslims Converting Empty European Churches into Mosques

Muslims in Europe are increasingly converting empty Christian churches into mosques.

The proliferation of mosques housed in former churches reflects the rise of Islam as the fastest growing religion in post-Christian Europe.

There are now more practicing Muslims than practicing Christians in many parts of Europe, not only in large urban centers, but also in smaller towns and cities across the continent.

As Islam replaces Christianity as the dominant religion in Europe, more and more churches are set to become mosques, which increasingly serve not only as religious institutions but also function as the foundational political building blocks for the establishment of separate, parallel Muslim communities in Europe that are based on Islamic Sharia law.
