How 100,000 Britons have chosen to become Muslim... and average convert is 27-year-old white woman

So 27 and female is the average age for marriage so I guess most of these people that converted was due to marriage.

I agree that it seems likely marriage related.
As a female, Islam is way down of my list of religions I would willingly convert to. But to each their own.

Most people know only of Islam what they hear on the news. News which is controlled by people who are not friendly to the religion *at all*. I have done a lot of investigation and have come to know some Muslim people personally, and I think it is a fine religion as religions go. Certainly no worse than any of the other "biggies".

I can certainly see the attraction for women. Western woman feel that Muslim women are mistreated because there are clearly defined rolls that exist for men and for women. Because of this, they do not think that women are treated fairly, but that is not true. In every case the laws that exist are to protect women. Liberated, feminist women thump their chest and proclaim that "WE DON'T NEED TO BE PROTECTED". Fine, whatever.

People need to investigate in great detail and be confident that they know the whole truth before they form opinions about this or anything.

Well, so much for liberation and feminism, right? To each his or her own, but I find it difficult to understand. Whatever...

The purpose of religion, similar to a virus, is to spread. Why do you think it's so prevalent in modern society? You have to get people to believe or convert to fit in or have acceptance in some places.
