Vicar Offered to Cover up Jesus for Sex-Segregated Ramadan Event in English Church by Virginia Hale for Breitbart
GNN Note – Why are Christians ashamed of Jesus Christ and the Crucification when it comes to muslims? Why do Christians not defend their faith, their God and the Life when confronted with the enemy? What about bowing before any other god? Did I misunderstand that as a Christian I bow before no other god?
Christians have slammed a vicar for being “ashamed of the gospel” after she offered to “cover” a crucifix and a painting of Jesus in order to host Muslims celebrating the end of Ramadan in an English church.
The Reverend Lissa Scott also agreed to set up sex-segregated spaces for guests to engage in Islamic prayer in St Matthew and St Luke’s church in Darlington, where the Iftar meal is set to take place on June 2nd, reports the Sunday Times.
At a planning meeting in May, attended by the Rev Lissa Scott and pro-”diversity” councillor and former mayor, Gerald Lee, representatives from the Yorkshire town’s Muslim community were told that the church would cover crosses and a famous devotional image of Jesus Christ by William Holman Hunt for the event.
The Sunday Times reported minutes from the meeting read: “One aisle in church to be cleared of chairs for Muslim men to say prayers. Cover Christian crosses/photographs in small rooms for ladies to say prayers.”
After hearing of St Matthew and St Luke’s plans to hold Islamic worship in the church, however, the diocese of Durham intervened, noting that “an act of worship from a non-Christian faith tradition is not permitted within a consecrated [CoE] building”.
Cllr Lee sent an email to members of the pro-“diversity” Celebrating Communities group he heads the next day with news of the decision and the suggestion that Muslim guests could “revert to using the two rooms that we inspected — one for the males and one for the ladies”, reported ‘Rebel Priest’ blogger Jules Gomes.
