    I need to dig into this a little more. Patrick also has some numbers on this. The number of births to second- and third-generations of families that have immigrated are always substantially less than the first generation. I *suspect* (although I don’t have immediate data) that most of the growth of Islam in Europe comes either from (a) immigration (e.g. new people arriving), (b) births to families, or (c) conversion-via-marriage (e.g. not outright conversion so much as someone marrying someone else and converting in the process). I also suspect that many of those converts are not very serious about the faith; it’s primarily a formality. For example, technically Robert Scoble (http://www.scobleizer.com) converted to Islam to marry his wife, but as far as I can see this is primarily a formality. Is it more than that for a typical European marriage to an immigrant?

    Thus, more Christians need to have have more kids. Could we possibly trust God with our family planning?
