On October 8, 2004 PBS reported, "the number of Muslims in the U.S. are variously estimated at between two and six million -- or more. About half are immigrants, and most of the rest, African Americans. [PBS provided] a profile today of two Caucasian converts who were attracted to Islam when they were living abroad. They spoke with correspondent Bob Faw about why they adopted their new faith... For some, this is a faith alien, even menacing. But in America, only megachurches are growing faster than mosques. And this religion, say converts, offers something other faiths do not."
