Leaving Catholicism for Islam

Post by Melissa, manager on Sun Jun 29, 2014 2:33 pm

From article:

However, Cathedrals are emptying, and former occupants have taken to worshiping in mosques... or at least that's the case in the Latin American community. Latinos are flocking to the Islamic faith at an unconfirmed
rate, and there's an estimated 100,000-200,000 (though competing sources says 15,000 to 50,000) Latino Muslims in the United States. Six percent of U.S. Muslims population is Latino, and one-in-five new converts to Islam are Hispanic.

Does this surprise anyone? Islam has a reputation for strict views on women, but in my experience growing up in a Catholic family I can attest to the fact that Catholicism has the most strict views, even to the point of denying women the right to be leaders in the Church. It's no surprise to me that anyone would leave Catholicism for that and a myriad of other reasons.
