Skip to comments.Australia: Hospital Bans Bibles, Crosses From Chapel to Avoid Offending Muslims
Posted on 04/08/2009 11:28:26 AM PDT by JDAM2007
THE decision to ban Christian symbols in the Royal North Shore Hospital chapel could incite rage against other faiths, some religious leaders fear.
The removal of religious images was ordered when the hospital gave Muslims a prayer space inside the chapel.
But last night Islamic leaders criticised the move and feared a backlash.
Keysar Trad, from the Islamic Friendship Society, said Muslims would not be offended to use a multi-faith chapel and see images of the cross.
From 1968 the chapel displayed a cross at the altar and a Bible was on-hand.

Just wait until we get government run health care. No more hospital names like St. Joseph’s or St. Mary’s.
Heaven and earth will pass away, but the Word of the Lord is eternal. And, that just hacks off nonbelievers big time.
Hopefully there will be a backlash. How long do Christians have to put up with this kind of crap?
how do you ban a bible or a cross from a chapel with a straight face??
Oh, so we have to accommodate the false prophet and his minnions. I think the Bible said this was coming.
are korans banned? prayer throw rugs?
There, fixed it.
I’m disappointed in the Aussies who did this.
This is beyond ridiculous. These hospitals should consider this kind of move when Islamic countries remove any sign of that religion to avoid making Christians feel uncomfortable, and not one minute before.
“are korans banned? prayer throw rugs?”
Doubtful, I haven’t seen any rampaging Muslim mob stories coming out of Australia today.
Maybe it’s time for Christians to start getting offended. Perhaps we should stop turning the other cheek and start acting like Old Testament warriors.
Turning the other cheek is for personal relationships.
Righteous anger on the other hand, is something Jesus displayed while on earth in the flesh — and WILL display in FULL Force when he comes back in all of his glory.
Let’s just make sure that it is appropriate, and we do not let it turn into plain old hatred or anger.
Names like Allah El Akbar or something similar.
As a Christian whose ancestors were Christian and helped create the modern democratic world with so many conveniences we take for granted and rights we seem to feel were dispensed gratis by ruling monarchs, I take offense to this CONTINUING proskenesis before Islam, political correctness and third world ingrates.
Underarm deodorant, toothpaste, and toilette tissues are but MINISCULE examples of what these third world ingrates did NOT contribute to a better civilization.
This pandering to these people must stop. More of us should be proud to be European and Christian. Its not racist to be proud of your heritage.
I think being hateful and angry towards people who are perscuting oour fellow Christians in Turkey, Iraq, Pakistan, Nigeria, Sudan, and Eygpt, and attempting to establish a similar situation in western Europe and North America is ENTIRELY “appropriate”.
ENOUGH OF THIS! I do not mind putting a Koran in the chapel or even limiting the stained glass windows to geometric designs but—banning the Bible and crosses is an insult and an outrage. To placate a few, we must all change. This is the march of tyranny my friends and it must stop now. Soon there will be a ban on churches displaying crosses, or the ringing of church bells. The only church permitted will be a mosque.
