UK:Islamic Prayer Rooms Should be Opened in Catholic Schools
Hat tip to Dinah Lord
First Church leaders from Britain and Scotland foolishly backed the UK Sharia Courts. Now the Church wants Islamic prayer rooms and foot washing basins built in all Catholic schools. This has all been approved by the Archbishop of Birmingham Vincent Nichols who is the likely successor to Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor. This position would make Nichols the leader of the country's over 4 million Catholics.
Muslim are supposed to wash before praying. This practice is called wudu. It involves washing the hands, face, arms and feet three times. Gargling and the washing of their necks, ears and nose. Some even wash their private parts. My question is, are they actually being allowed to perform Islamic prayers in Catholic schools? A Church leader has said that this is all part of their commitment to interfaith dialogue. When it comes to interfaith dialogue, what have Muslims done to reciprocate these actions by Christians?
