Washington DC’s National Cathedral To Hold Muslim Prayers On Friday

If the founders of the United States weren’t rolling in their graves already, this should do it:

Washington National Cathedral and five Muslim groups announced today the first celebration of Muslim Friday prayers (Jumaa) at the Cathedral on Friday, November 14.

Leaders believe offering Muslim prayers at the Christian cathedral shows more than hospitality. It demonstrates an appreciation of one another’s prayer traditions and is a powerful symbolic gesture toward a deeper relationship between the two Abrahamic traditions.

So now Muslims are getting the Episcopalians to do their bidding? (Yes, the National Cathedral is Episcopalian.) Note the choice of churches to invade is not St. Matthew’s Cathedral or the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception or even the Mormon Temple, but the symbolic church of the country used for state occasions.
