National Cathedral Hosts Islamic Prayers; Lone Protester Objects

WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- To improve relations between Muslims and Christians, the Washington National Cathedral hosted its first Muslim prayer service Friday, according to The Christian Post.

However, the service was not without incident.

"Jesus Christ died on that cross over there," announced a lone female protester immediately after the service began. "He is the reason why we are to worship only him. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior."

And because Islam's "Allah" represents an "other god" to Christians, Bryan Fischer -- Director of Issue Analysis for the American Family Association -- said that the Muslim prayer service actually violated the first commandment of the Decalogue: "You shall have no other gods before me".

The cathedral had modified its tour schedule to host traditional Islamic Friday prayers called Jumu'ah. Planners had hoped Friday's service would inspire Muslims around the world to be hospitable to Christians.

  1. If more Christians would post these news releases on their Facebook pages and other social media, the world would see what is happening to the church. Stand up or shut up... I say! Speak God's Holy Word boldly or don't complain as you watch the demise of our Christian culture and the demoralization of your children and grandchildren. "Those that bury their head in the sand, choose to live in darkness as well."
