In Chicago And Elsewhere, Latinos Converting To Islam

No surprise here. Islam goes perfectly with Santeria, and the crazed, Pagan Mary-worship that exists in much of Latin America.

From the Chicago Sun Times:
Standing shoulder to shoulder inside a community center in Morton Grove, Muslim men and boys bowed their heads in prayer. Behind them, women and girls prayed along, some with faces covered, some just their heads. 
At the same moment, Muslims around Chicago and the world faced Mecca and prayed to Allah. They repeated the pattern of standing, kneeling, bending their foreheads to the ground, uttering prayers. 
It was Ramadan — the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, in which Muslims fast and devote themselves to prayer, giving to the less fortunate and nourishing relationships. At the end of their fast each day, they ate an iftar — breaking their fast. 
At this iftar in Morton Grove, Arabic, Urdu and English were spoken by Muslims whose roots traced to India, Pakistan, Jordan and Palestine. Soon, Spanish could also be heard. Alongside the traditional Pakistani and Indian dishes — daal, butter chicken and endless naan — were Mexican dishes like molé y arroz. 
It was a slice of the Muslim world that’s often overlooked — people whose families are from Mexico, Guatemala, Puerto Rico and Peru. 
There are no precise figures on how many Latino Muslims live in the Chicago area, where the population is about 30 percent Latino. 
But, according to various estimates, the 130 mosques in the city and suburbs are the spiritual home to a small but growing group of converts — Latino Muslims. According to Aaron Siebert-Llera, an attorney with the Inner-City Muslim Action Network who is the current director of the Latino American Dawah Organization, the black Muslim population has been the predominant Muslim group in Chicago. 
During the 1960s and 1970s, Siebert-Llera says, the South Asian and Arab Muslim populations grew, separately on the North and Southwest Sides. 
As with other immigrant groups, different communities tended to have their own places of worship. “It’s just based on how Chicago has always been — a very divided city,” he says. “Muslim immigrants kind of followed the same pattern. 
These communities have all segmented themselves. Latinos are the same way. They stay in the neighborhoods where they’re comfortable.” Siebert-Llera says Latino Muslims around Chicago tend to be more dispersed than they are in other cities. 
In Houston, for example, the Centro Islámico mosque opened in 2016 to serve Latino populations.
I would also expect Islam to appeal to Nordic Satan Worshippers.

Islam and Satanism both worship power, and they both allow men to do whatever they will, as long as they practice submission and are willing to sacrifice themselves to their angry god.

I investigated cults for over 15 years and have Seen Everything, and for sheer lunacy Islam leaves about 99.9% of them in the dust. Even the Satanists. (Not sure about the Nordic variety.) And never mind Santeria, Palo Mayombe would look almost tame. Word is the Muslim imports are teaching the Mexican cartels the finer points of beheading. "Necktie-ing", nganga pots and vertebrae necklaces now being considered too tame.

I never recall seeing an Islamic "cult". That's because Islam is the biggest cult in the world and any dissenting offshoots would have been immediately tagged "apostate" and hacked to pieces with scimitars.

"Crazed Mary worshipping" betrays your ignorance, you heretic heathen hick.

How could an iconoclast cult like Islam go well with people following a religion full with icons? Mexicans worship death, it's a syncretist heresy with nothing to do with real Catholicism. You're out of your mind. If anything Islam goes well with iconoclast foreskin-cutting Jewish-worshipping snake-holding gibberish-talking misantropic Protestant crazies.

Sounds like you have your own axes to grind. They really have nothing to do with what we do here.

I have no problem with Catholicism. I love Catholicism.

I have a problem when veneration of the Saints as intercessors veers into a form of paganism (many gods - female deities at the center - earth mother - or primal ancestor worship.

After 9/11 I formed a friendship with a man who was involved in Da'wah within the federal prisons. This targeted disenfranchised black men. From prison, to mosque, to a nice Muslim wife. It was a nice little plan.

Recruitment of Spanish speaking immigrants is moving along with a social justice theme. Take Muhammad's story: isolated in a valley for a time with a social boycott in place, the year of grief and Hajj. It provides a perfect emotional template.

The last few times I entered a mosque for an event there was a Spanish language gift bag available for participants, with a Qur'an in Spanish and also, an actually hardcore commentary booklet written by a radical scholar from the subcontinent. I read the Spanish version and it was a good translation.
