Offensive Koran Verse Sung In Cathedral
A passage from the Koran was sung at St. Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in Glasgow that denied that Christ is the Son of God sparking outrage from Christ followers around the world.
The Muslim disrespect occurred on the Feast of the Epiphany.
The passage from Surah 19, which specifically denies that Jesus was the Son of God and says He should not be worshipped, was sung during a Eucharist service at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in Glasgow to mark the feast of the Epiphany.
A video of the recital was posted on YouTube showing a girl singing the passage in a typical Islamic style. It narrates the Islamic account of the birth of Jesus, which includes the claim that Mary was “ashamed” after giving birth, and the infant Christ miraculously spoke from the cradle – something not found in Christian scripture.
She then concludes by singing verse 35, which states in translation: “It befitteth not the Majesty of Allah that He should take unto Himself a son,” and then verse 36, which has the infant Jesus saying: “And lo! Allah is my Lord and your Lord. So worship Him. That is the right path.”
The cathedral praised the reading in a Facebook post, calling it a “wonderful event”…
…The cathedral’s Facebook page also proudly publicises a press report on the provost’s Christmas sermon, in which he compared U.S. President-Elect Donald Trump to the biblical King Herod, who ordered the massacre of children.
This is absolutely outrageous.
Who in their right mind would allow a Muslim to sing in a Cathedral? Muslims are murdering Jews and Christians around the world and this Cathedral allows them to sing a song that is blasphemous to their own beliefs?
