This is being celebrated as an “inclusive” act. When will the Nicene Creed be recited inside a mosque? Or must the “inclusive” acts, as always, go only in one direction?
Do the “inclusive” people at the Gloucester Cathedral realize that now that the Islamic profession of faith, which is part of the Islamic call to prayer, has been recited in the cathedral, that according to abundant precedent, it is now a mosque? When Mehmet the Conqueror wanted to turn the Hagia Sophia cathedral in Constantinople into a mosque, he had a muezzin recite the profession of faith from the pulpit. So it’s now the Gloucester Mosque.
“Outrage as Islamic CALL TO PRAYER held inside historic British CATHEDRAL,” Express, January 19, 2017:
A ROW has broken out after an Islamic call to prayer was held inside one of Britain’s most historic cathedrals.
The traditional Muslim invocation to worship was performed in front of 1,000 people at the launch of a multi-cultural Faith Exhibition at Gloucester Cathedral.
Imam Hassan of the local Masjid-e-Noor mosque was invited by church leaders to carry it out in the cathedral’s 11th century Chapter House.
Many worshippers welcomed the “inclusive” act but some traditionalists questioned why a “different God” should be worshipped in such an iconic Christian house.
A clip of the call to prayer was initially shared on the cathedral’s Facebook page but then taken down as “inappropriate” as tensions rose.
One post on the removed thread by Isabel Farmer said: “It’s wonderful to be multicultural, but faith is set apart.
“We are never to worship other Gods in a house built for our saviour.
“My ancestors built this cathedral and to allow a practising Muslim pray to another God is insanely naive. What did you think it would do? Encourage them to convert?
“This is why England is on the downslide. Culture and Race have nothing to do with the first commandment as God made all races and he cares about souls only.
“Stand firm Christians. Bring people to the faith by telling them the truth.
“God is the same yesterday, today, forever, so stop with the multicultural appeal and open a history book and a Bible for yourself.”…
