[by Dean Smith] When the Episcopalian Church decided to allow Muslims to hold a call to prayer at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC, on Friday, November 14, 2014, it was intended to show that two of the world’s major faiths worship the same God. Instead it showed how far the Episcopalian church has fallen from God.
But things went a bit awry when Christine Weick, a 5o-year-old, Michigan woman, showed up during the prayer time and told the Muslims in attendance that “Jesus is Lord.”
Weick told the crowd:
“Jesus Christ died on the cross. It is the reason we are to worship only Him. Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. We have built enough of your mosques in this country. Why don’t you worship in your mosques and leave our churches alone.”
After she spoke these words, Muslims began to shout out for the woman to be removed. They specifically mentioned her blonde hair. Security guards immediately moved in and removed Weick.
In an interview with Wnd.com, Weick said when she entered the cathedral she noticed the Muslims had set their rugs up on the floor so their backs were to the cross hanging on the wall. Though Muslims consider Jesus a prophet, they do not believe he was the Son of God and they do not believe He was crucified.
It is not certain what most offended the Muslims in attendance? Was it the fact that Jesus was being proclaimed as Lord in a church or was it because it was a woman who did it?
