Raising Eyebrows

I am not prejudiced against Islam, as I can recognize that not all in Islam are terrorists. However, Islam fundamentalists appear to be more radical and violent than other religions at the moment. Mix that with hot-blooded, passionate latinos, and it is definitely something to think about. Historically Hispanics, particularly in the Caribbean have been dominantly Catholic. Lately there had been a shift towards Protestant religions, in part due to desillusion with the Church. Now, as it turns out, it seems they are turning to Islam, and in pretty high numbers, and particularly women. The story (abbreviated) in Spanish here. The full story in English from the Sun-Sentinnel is here.
