The percentage spike is SHOCKING… and so is the percentage drop-off. What will this mean for Britain?
A Government report released stunning numbers relating to religion. The changes in numbers of Christians and Muslims in the country was staggering. The Casey Report states:
Christians remain a majority, while a quarter of the population holds no religion. But the proportion of Christians fell from 70 per cent to 59 per cent…
Among faith groups the number of people identifying themselves as Muslim grew most significantly, by 1.2m people.
This 72 per cent increase is higher than for any other religious group and Muslims make up the largest non-Christian religious population in the UK at 2.8m in total, compared with 0.8m Hindus, 0.4m Sikhs, 0.3m Jews and 0.3m Buddhists.

Europe is changing. England isn’t as Christian as it used to be.
The Brierley Consultancy conducted a separate study and says that Church membership in the UK has declined significantly. In 1930, membership levels were at 10.6 million which has dwindled to 5.5 million in 2010.
The Casey Report says that of those that those who identify as Christians has plummeted from 40.2 million to 36.1 million with further losses projected. We are facing an increase in a religious ideology that has a branch that stands against Western values of freedom, tolerance, integration and equality.
The Left will tout this as ‘Progressive’ and ‘inclusive’, failing to see the irony of their position.
Are you surprised at the findings of the report?
What do YOU think this means for Europe?
