In a corner of Washington National Cathedral, several hundred Muslim worshipers and other invited guests gathered Friday afternoon for a first-ever recitation of weekly Muslim prayers at the iconic Christian sanctuary and to hear leaders of both faiths call for religious unity in the face of extremist violence and hate.
The event was closed to the public, and there was heavy security, with police checking every name and bag. Organizers from several area Muslim institutions said there had been concerns about security and threats after the event was publicized and that they and cathedral officials wanted to limit it to a small and selected group.
Nevertheless, the carefully scripted ceremony was marred once when one well-dressed, middle-age woman in the audience suddenly rose and began shouting that “America was founded on Christian principles. . . Leave our church alone!” She was swiftly ushered out by security aides, and the service continued.
So, just who was the well-dressed, burkaless, non-Sharia compliant woman?
The intent was to make a statement about religious tolerance that would resound around the world.
Other speakers said they hoped the service would help correct some Americans’ misperceptions of Muslims as extremists and reinforce tolerance among faiths. More here.
Me thinks the physician needs to heal himself. History, even recent history, dispells the brain washing position that islam is a religion of peace. One could call it a joke but “they” are dead serious in their attempts to convert.
The so-called ROP purveyors have a mighty task ahead if they are to convince this world that peace is the goal. Actions always speak louder than words.

Non-Muslims must understand the traditionalist, mainstream Islamic understandings of these routine “sacralized” utterances just as Muslims are taught to interpret them, shorn of apologetics, or aggressive Islamic dissimulation. Genocidal jihadism is the ugly living legacy of this bigoted Islamic doctrine, not “ecumenism.”
