There is some sort of apocalyptic irony at play, when the Archbishop of Pompeii warns of the Muslim 'Vesuvius' which is now erupting and will soon bury formerly Christian Europe.
In any case, Mark Steyn isn't the only one to warn about the collapse of Europe and the rise of Islam.
Top Bishop: Europe Will Soon Be Muslim 'Because of Our Stupidity'
by Nick Hallett, Breitbart News, January 14, 2017:
|This scene in London is being played out all across Western Europe as well.|
Everyone in Italy and the rest of Europe will “soon be Muslim” because of the country’s “stupidity”, a prominent Italian archbishop has said.
Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompeii, said that Islam will soon become Europe’s main religion thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans.
Speaking to Italian Catholic journal La Fede Quotidiana, the archbishop said: “In 10 years we will all be Muslims because of our stupidity. Italy and Europe live in a pagan and atheist way, they make laws that go against God and they have traditions that are proper of paganism.
“All of this moral and religious decadence favours Islam.”
“We have a weak Christian faith,” he added. “The Church nowadays does not work well and seminaries are empty.
“Parishes are the only thing still standing. We need a true Christian life. All this paves the way to Islam. In addition to this, they have children and we do not. We are in full decline.”
