Lesbian Bishop Wants to Remove Crosses From Swedish Church to Make MUSLIMS FEEL WELCOME
A lesbian bishop in the progressive utopia of Sweden wants to remove the crosses from a church and add markers which point the direction to Mecca in order to make Muslims feel more welcome.
Some people think this is a bad idea:
Swedish bishop wants crosses removed from the church
Bishop Eva Brunne wants to remove Christian symbols from the Seamen’s Church in Stockholm, and instead create a prayer room for Muslims, SVT reports…
The proposal has triggered protests. Patrik Pettersson, priest of the Oscars parish in Stockholm, thinks that the proposal is remarkable and writes on his blog:
“The church chapel can not reasonably be equated with prayer rooms at airports and hospitals chapel. The Christian church and chapels are not just any public areas.”
And the Seamen’s Church Director, Kiki Wetterberg, does not agree with the bishop either.
– I have no problem with Muslim or Hindu sailors coming here to pray. But I believe that we are a Christian church, so we should keep the symbols. If I visit a mosque I do not ask them to take down their symbols. It’s my choice to go in there, she says to the Christian newspaper Dagen.

Malmö is Sweden’s gateway to Europe, and is the main point of ingress to the Nordic nations for the thousands of migrants travelling through Europe from Africa and the East who have decided to make it home.

Describing the ‘no-go’ zones that have sprung up around the city and calling for greater border controls to get criminal migration under control, Chief Superintendent Torsten Elofsson said:
“Years ago you could go with two officers, no problem. Now you have to send four officers and two cars – if the fire brigade want to go, they have to take a police escort.
