A bishop in Sweden who’s openly gay wants to open the doors of the church to those of other faiths so widely that she’s now proposing to provide separate prayer space for Muslims — at the church.
Eva Brunne, the first lesbian bishop of the Church of Sweden, is already regarded as a trailblazer of sorts for her sexual choice. But now, opening the church to other faiths in a manner that allows those of other faiths to actually practice their other faiths inside the Christian church?
It doesn’t make sense.
What she’s proposing, in essence, is to change the church to a different denomination — to an entirely different religion.
From PJ Media:
“Calling Muslim guests to the church “angels“, the Bishop later took to her official blog to explain that removing Christian symbols from the church and preparing the building for Muslim prayer doesn’t make a priest any less a defender of the faith. Rather, to do any less would make one “stingy towards people of other faiths”.
“The bishop insisted this wasn’t an issue, after all airports and hospitals already had multi-faith prayer rooms, and converting the dockyard church would only bring it up to speed. Regardless, the announcement has aroused protest.
“Unfortunately, Brunne forgets that these multi-faith prayer rooms are purpose-built facilities designed for people who may feel the need be close to God as they understand Him, but can’t really leave for whatever reason. They’re not churches and never were.
“Brunne would be better served by working toward setting up such a multi-faith facility in close proximity to the docks.”
