Gloucester Cathedral Goes Dhimmwit

The Church of England's famous Gloucester Cathedral went full-on dhimmwit the other day by inviting a Moslem Imam to give the Islamic call to prayer in the once Christian cathedral's Medieval Chapter House.

Imam Hassan of the Gloucester's Masjid-e-Noor mosque gave the Islamic call to prayer on cathedral property, provoking outrage on the part of Christians.

So Inspiring!

Comments such as, "My ancestors built this cathedral and to allow a practising Muslim to pray to another God is insanely naive. What did you think it would do? Encourage them to convert?" and, "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," caused Gloucester Cathedral to shut down a Facebook page on the event.

Now I'm Inspired!

The Imam's appeal for people to become Muslim in a Christian Cathedral was part of a wider art exhibit called "Faith" which featured Buddhist chanting, Rasta drumming, Hindu dancing and a pagan pop band.

Now I'm Really Inspired!!

How many people attend Gloucester Cathedral on any given Sunday is a mystery, as is the rumour that the ill-fated diocese suffers under an ancient curse.

That makes me a bit ill. Okay - that makes me very, very ill.

The rot runs very deep, and is exposed for all to see.

Imagine THAT happening the other way round.

Right, I'm going to buy Gloucester Cathedral and turn it into Clown Church. It's already 3/4 of the way there.

Sorry, Adrienne!

Part of the problem, LL, is that the Diocese of Gloucester suffers under an ancient curse.

Exactly, Juliette. When was the last time a Christian priest stood up in a Mosque and recited the Our Father or the Nicene Creed? Interfaith, it seems, is a one way street out of Christianity.

I think you'll find Gloucester Cathedral fertile ground for the clown experiment. Good call!
