This is one of the only times I have been happy about the spread of any religion. Here is why. Islam has gained so much favor in poor areas of China and is rapidly spreading. It's spreading so rapidly that soon there will be more Muslim Chinese than Muslim Arabs. What does that mean? Well it's already starting to happen, the Chinese are going to turn Islam over on it's head. It's inevitable that any culture which adopts another cultures customs or belief systems tweaks it to suit their own culture and their own ideals. As of now the Chinese are allowing women to be imams (Islamic priest) which is strictly forbidden in Saudi Arabia the hub of the Muslim world. Women imams are only the start though, in short time I foresee the Chinese incorporating their own cultures values, superstitions, and ideals on Islam effectively turning it upside-down. Now this new version of Islam might be as stupid as the old one, but it's sure to piss a lot of Muslims off. What's next for the future of Chinese Islam? Arabs like to believe that Mohamed wrote the Qu'ran but was illiterate so it was a "miracle"..some how I think the Chinese who place a lot of value on education won't like that...I can't wait for them to make a statement to Saudi clerics like "No Mohamed wasn't illiterate...he was smart...and good at math...we like that better".
