NJ church to broadcast Islamic call to prayer Sunday
http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com ^ | 05/22/2011 | n/a

Posted on 05/22/2011 8:21:52 AM PDT by massmike

A great day to sleep late in Jersey, as long as you’re not within earshot of St John’s in Montclair. via Interfaith Service at St. John’s Parish in Montclair | Baristanet.

This Sunday morning, May 22, at 10 a.m., the sounds of the adhan — the Muslim call to prayer — will ring out in St. John’s Episcopal Church Montclair.

While there’s no minaret at the church, the words of “Allahu akbar,” (God is greater) will none-the-less invite both Christians and Muslims to worship side by side. During the interfaith service, verses from the Holy Qur’an will complement readings from the Holy Bible, including during Communion, embracing the traditions of both religions.

Reverend Andrew Butler, Rector of St. John’s parish since September 1, 2010, decided to have this service in order to demonstrate that both Islam and Christianity stem from Abrahamic roots, as well as to dispell negative stereotypes about the Muslim faith.

Montclair has been an anti-American cesspool ever since the Mroz monster and the Boyce boil moved in.

And this will be, of course, matched by a Christian prayer service in a local Mosque... (Crickets)

Reminds me of a Do Rickles routine. Towards the end of his set he would say to all the Arabs in the audience for being such great sports (he picked on them)Stand up They stood he said OPEN FIRE

Figures it would be a piskie church. Their reigning bishopress has already declared that Jesus is just one of many ways to find god; and, recently, that believers literally don't know where they are going, but that she will lead them there.

Might as well worship the moon god, then-- can't hurt, right?

I would expect this from the Episcopal Church…an offshoot of the Church of England, which was founded for the sole reason that King Henry 8 wanted a divorce.

Note to Episcopalians: It ain’t allah, krishna, buddha, gaia, or any other false god...ONLY CHRIST IS SUFFICIENT TO SAVE SINNERS COMPLETELY.

I thought that when muzzies worship inside a church that it then becomes a mosque......forever.

Anyway, the Episcopalian church is nothing but last night’s melted drink. Diluted, no taste, no character, and fit only to be poured down the drain.

Just because the roots are strong does not prevent a branch from whithering.

They are toast.

Once Islamic services are done in their building, Muslims consider the land to belong to them forever to the point of violence if necessary to remove the land from infidel hands.

But, it is fitting for a church that prays to strange gods to be in the hands of true infidels.

Uh huh. What's next week? Calming the spin about how the Aztec's 'helping' enemies and worshipers alike to 'give their hearts to god' might have been a trifle misguided?

Toby Keith has a great song out with the title "If you don't know where you're going(You might end up somewhere else)" Seems like it fits and that "somewhere else" may not be to your liking. If you get my drift...

the rev Butler needs to get back to the seminary and also learn about islam and islam’s chronological order and geneology.
where is the intersection of isalm and Christianity ?
same for this allah.
The Names of God Almighty were revealed to the prophets and allah never was 1 of Them.

“as well as to dispell negative stereotypes about the Muslim faith.”

and which stereotypes are those? The cutting off of heads if you don’t agree that alah is great or the raping of young (often pre-teen) girls? Oh wait my mistake, I meant MARRYING of young (often pre-teen) girls.

Silly me. Slip of the keyboard, have to get that fixed I guess.

Yes, I lived with it for two years in Erdogan’s Turkey. Ankara has a lot of ‘wild dog packs’, and they all chimed in at the first notes. Even better (and not well known) is what occurs during Ramadan. Two goobers walk down every street between 2 and 4 am with drums banging away to wake the people up for breakfast before sunrise. It’s based on tradition before people actually had alarm clocks, but there’s nothing quite like going back to the 9th century.

Certainly. From three mosques at the same time.

Several times a day.

Anybody with a modicum of knowledge about Islam knows that this has zero chance of success.

“Reverend Andrew Butler, Rector of St. John’s parish since September 1, 2010, decided to have this service in order to demonstrate that both Islam and Christianity stem from Abrahamic roots, as well as to dispell negative stereotypes about the Muslim faith.” He should just give the Islamists the keys and be done with it. Because of leaders like this jackass his church is dying anyway. This useful idiot obviously knows nothing about Islam.
