The outgoing Archbishop of Prague Cardinal Miloslav Vlk has warned of the “Islamization” of Europe, calling for Europeans to return to their Christian roots. “The fall of Europe is looming,” he said in an interview published on his website.
"Europe has denied its Christian roots from which it has risen and which could give it the strength to fend off the danger that it will be conquered by Muslims -- which is actually happening gradually,” the cardinal said, according to Agence France Presse.
"If Europe doesn't change its relation to its own roots, it will be Islamized,” added the prelate.
Cardinal Vlk said that immigration and Muslims’ high birth rates have helped Muslims “easily fill the vacant space created as Europeans systematically empty the Christian content of their lives.”
