References for claims?

2014-11-23 13:40

Toby Strong should provide references.

This question refers to a comment made by Toby Strong, an evangelical Christian, in the article 'The Good News for the world' appearing on news24.com/MyNews24/The-Good-News-for-the-world-20141121-2

The comment  was made on November 21, 2014 at 11:54

Toby Strong commented:

“Read yesterday's article on the young men joining Isis from France. 80% of those have atheists as parents. Wonder why? If you think how low the percentage of atheists are, and yet such a high number of those militant terrorists have atheists as parents.”

Couldn’t find any article describing that.

 Did Toby tell an untruth? I think so.

I saw articles claiming that large percentages of those fighters were born from Muslim parents. I also saw some articles claiming that some of those European Isis fighters were children of Christian parents.

Could you provide reliable references for your claims, Toby?
