An investigation of the French youths’ religious beliefs was conducted last spring by Ipsos. It surveyed nine thousand high school pupils in their teens on behalf of the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and Sciences Po Grenoble, and was released on February 4, 2016, by L’Obs, France’s leading liberal newsmagazine. Here are its findings:

38.8% of French youths do not identify with a religion.
33.2% describe themselves as Christian.
25.5% call themselves Muslim.
1.6% identify as Jewish.

Only 40% of the young non-Muslim believers (and 22% of the Catholics) describe religion as “something important or very important.”

But 83% of young Muslims agreed with that statement.

  1. Quran 5:32 says not to kill. But it was directed at Jews to forbid them from deffending themselves, not Muslims. This verse follows the verse Muslims use to say Islam is a religion of peace.
    It is either gross deception or intolerable ignorance for supposedly civilized people to quote verse 32 and ignore verse 33, but it has happened continually the almost 15 years since 911.

    Sahih International: Quran 5:33
    “Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment,”
    France ,Germany, Sweden, and any other country with substantial populations of Muslims will continue to pay a great price for being ignorant of the true nature of Islam.

  2. If we read the verses mentioned in the above comment, in context of time and rest of the Quranic chapter, it means that the punishment of mutiny and terrorism is death.

    The above verses follow the Quranic condemnation of murder of Able by Cain, Adam’s sons. So, these verses are definitely establishing the sanctity of human life.

  3. the Muslims are doing a much better job teaching their children faith. It’s one thing to have the gift of faith – for many europeans it is a cultural faith as opposed to a practical faith. At this explosive rate of growth the Muslim teens will be 50% of the teenagers in less than a generation.
