I am a musician. I have played a piece by Karl Jenkins called “The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace.” The first time I played it was in a concert hall setting, so the impression of the juxtaposition of the traditional mass with the Islamic call to prayer, among other cultural elements was interesting.

The second time I played it was 9/11 in a Catholic basillica. It was completely different! Having the Islamic call to prayer chanted from where Holy Scripture is usually read was the most sacreligious thing I had ever seen in a church. It was no longer a work of art, it was a religious statement because of where it was performed.

I pray that God give those protesting this work in England strength and lots of publicity.

Yeah, as soon as this is done you’ll have muzzies proclaiming “It’s ours now for all eternity.” Dar es’Salaam. Like if they catch you reciting the shehada you’re supposedly automatically muslim and can never leave upon pain of death.

Ecumenism is bunk. Ecumenism with musslemen is BLASPHEMY.
