In the United States, Christians will decline from more than three-quarters of the population in 2010 to two-thirds in 2050, and Judaism will no longer be the largest non-Christian religion. Muslims will be more numerous in the U.S. than people who identify as Jewish on the basis of religion. (PEW)
By 2050 there will be near parity between Muslims (2.8 billion, or 30% of the population) and Christians (2.9 billion, or 31%), for the first time in history. (PEW)

LET US ALL PRAY FOR THE HEALTH OF OUR CHURCH, OUR COUNTRY, AND OUR FAMILIES.
