By Paul Bremmer. Christianity in Germany, and indeed in all of Europe, is dying.
There are about 47 million Catholics and Protestants combined in Germany, representing roughly 60 percent of the German population, but that number is falling by 500,000 a year through deaths alone, according to the Gatestone Institute . . .
In the year 2016 alone, the German Catholic Church lost 162,093 faithful attendees and closed 537 parishes, according to data from the German Bishops’ Conference. One quarter of all German Catholic communities that existed in 1996 have now closed . . .
While Christianity is dying in Germany, Islam is on the rise. Historian Walter Laqueur wrote that Germany had about 700 “little mosques and prayer rooms” in the 1980s but “more than 2,500 at the present time” – and that was in 2009.

Sharoon’s parents had saved money to send their son to MC Model Boys Government High School Burewala and District Vehari in an attempt to pursue higher education.
From the day he started, on August 25, he was subjected to abuse from Muslim boys for being a Christian. (Read more from “Christian Student, 17, Is Beaten to Death by Muslim Classmates After Drinking From the Same Glass as One of Them” HERE)
