How wonderful. How sweet and charitable and generous and loving. Maybe the Muslims who go to this mosque once it is built will look upon their Christian neighbors with gratitude, and treat them kindly. More likely, however, they will see the Christians’ generosity as their due, since the Qur’an commands Muslims to fight against the “People of the Book” and force them to pay the jizya, a tax from which Muslims are exempt. So non-Muslims paying money to Muslims is the divinely-ordained order of things, and doesn’t exempt these Christians from the general commands Muslims have in the Qur’an to wage war against and subjugate unbelievers. It is conceivable that the Muslims who go to this mosque could one day attack and destroy the church whose people collected money to build the mosque, and they will do so because they believe this is what the Qur’an tells them to do, and Christians being nice to them doesn’t mitigate the Qur’anic command.
The Swedish church in Nacka is the Christian Church today in microcosm. All denominations. This is today’s Christianity. This is the Christianity of Pope Francis, and Patriarch Gregory III Laham, and Bishop Robert McManus, and Rick Warren, and so many other clerics who think that if they ignore and deny the problem of Muslim persecution of Christians, and pursue their chimerical and fruitless “dialogue,” that all will be well, and that those who tell the truth about what is happening are a continuing danger to the Church.
Well, they have the Church they want now, and as the years go by, it will become clear to everyone what they have done, and what unimaginable damage and destruction they have enabled.
The Swedish church in Naka [sic] has been planning to raise funds to build a mosque adjacent to the church building in Fisksätra, Stokholm, for years.
The joint building is to be called the “House of God” and is estimated to cost SEK 39 million ($4,548,630), an amount the church tries to collect through a foundation.
Priest and former bishop of Karlstad, Bengt Wadensjö, presented the project in an article in a Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet. Referring to the Swedish democrats, he wrote “When fear of the unknown in the form of Islam now gives Sweden a profile in the news by SD taking place in parliament, I want to highlight a different picture of Sweden.”
Contradicting Jimmie Åkesson, head of SD’s statement that Muslims were the biggest foreign threat, he wrote, “In Nacka we do not believe that immigrants or Muslims would be a threat. They are an asset.”
Bengt Wadensjö said that Muslims and Christians should unite in the idea that God is one, and added that “Muslims are generally peaceful and honest”, and that the project would lead to that “world peace begins in Fisksätra”.
Presently, the idea is to build the mosque adjacent to the church, a glazed foyer joining the two.
In November 2014, Nacka Parish decided to transfer bequeathed funds to the collection fund to build the mosque, ie money from deceased who wanted to support the Swedish Church by donating money. Although this decision was appealed, the protest was rejected.
