In case some people haven’t been keeping up …..
There are some Godless, fake Christians, running Duke University.
The lunatics had decided it was a good idea to convert the pictured cathedral into a minaret/mosque. And, from there, a Muslim call to prayer was to be publicly broadcast. May God have mercy on their souls.
An uproar ensued after the announcement, as it should have. They’ve backed down from this notion of desecration.
Duke University has abandoned its plan to transform the bell tower on the Methodist school’s neo-gothic cathedral into a minaret where the Muslim call to prayer was to be publicly broadcast.
“Duke remains committed to fostering an inclusive, tolerant and welcoming campus for all of its students,” university spokesman Michael Schoenfeld said in a statement. “However, it was clear that what was conceived as an effort to unify was not having the intended effect.”
The first adhan, or call to prayer, had been scheduled to be broadcast on Jan. 16. University officials said, the Islamic chant, which includes the words “Allahu Akbar” would have been “moderately amplified” — in both English and Arabic.
Graham said Muslims have a right to worship in America. He also said there are millions of “wonderful people in Islam that want to live their life and raise their children and they want to be free.” But he also said that Islam is not a peaceful religion.
However, the decision brought a firestorm of national criticism from a number of high profile leaders including Franklin Graham, the son of famed evangelist Billy Graham.
“This is a Methodist school and the money for that chapel was given by Christian people over the years so that the student body would have a place to worship the God of the Bible,” Graham told me in a telephone interview.
He had called for university donors to pull their funding – (and I suspect that had something to do with Duke’s decision.)
Instead, the prayers will be moved to outside the chapel.
“Members of the Muslim community will now gather on the quadrangle outside the Chapel, a site of frequent interfaith programs and activities,” Schoenfeld said.
The university did not say whether the Muslim call to prayer would be “moderately amplified” at the new location.
Christy Lohr Sapp, Duke’s associate dean for religious life, heralded the Muslim call to prayer in a column published by the NewsObserver.com.
“The use of it as a minaret allows for the interreligious reimagining of a university icon,” Lohr Sapp wrote. …..
Well, it isn’t just Duke. All over the US, universities, founded by Christians, for Christians, funded by Christians, are turned into Godless, anti-Christian bastions of heretical, unholy, profane institutions.
Christians should be more discerning.
I entirely agree with Graham. I fully endorse the free right for Muslims to worship in the US. I would fight for such freedom. Stay out of our Christian churches. I will fight for this, as well.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not blaming, nor is my anger directed towards Muslims. It is directed towards fake Christians. God will deal with you people. These are God’s houses. They’ve been consecrated. You are trying to desecrate them.
Let’s all pretend that we’re all Christians and have read the Good book, at least a bit. “A house divided”, isn’t a quote from Abe Lincoln. Now, either you believe the word of God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, is true, or you don’t. If you don’t, then, quit pretending to be a Christian and separate yourselves from us. I’ve no problem with such people distinguishing themselves from me and mine. I would prefer that they do. I believe most Methodists are of good faith. But, if not, then, let it not be said they are of Christianity, for they would defile the name and body of Christ.
