Islamic Prayers and Readings from Qu’ran to be part of Pope and Patriarch’s Interfaith Vatican Service

Reported on June 06, 2014 (Sources: Al-Arabiya and Fox-News)

For the first time in history, Islamic prayers and readings from the Quran will be heard at the Vatican on Sunday, in a move by Pope Francis to usher in peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

Francis issued the invitation to Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas during his visit last week to Jordan, Israel, and the Palestinian Authority.

    Stupid move. Francis is nuts.

  • Christian Orthodox

    These heretics and infidels forgot to mention the plight of Mariam Ibrahim
    a 27 year old Ethiopian Orthodox woman who is in a filthy, pest filled Sudanese
    prison with her two children (one is just and infant born in prison a few days
    ago) sentenced to be hanged because she refuses to deny her Christian faith and
    belief in Christ. Why don’t the Pope and Patriarch speak to their Muslim friends and representatives of the so-called Ecumenical movement to intercede for this martyr? Why didn’t they read from the Qur’an their blasphemies: Sura 9.30 “…. and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”

    Where is the American government (the woman’s husband is an American citizen)? They are too busy protecting and passing laws for homosexual rights to concern themselves with a Christian woman.

    But where are the Orthodox Patriarchs, Archbishops, Bishops, Abbots, the innovationists, the Ecumenists, the New Calendarists, the True, Genuine, Traditional, Old Calendar Orthodox? They are too busy in their hypocrisy for they are as those “[W]ho like to walk around in long robes, and love respectful greetings in the market places, and chief seats in the synagogues [churches] and places of honor at banquets, who devour widows’ houses, and for appearance’s sake offer long prayers. These will receive greater condemnation.” (St Luke 20.46)

    In the early Church St. Gregory the Great (Dial. l. 3, c. 1,) recounts that the Holy Bishop Paulinus of Nola sold himself to the Vandals to redeem the son of a poor
    widow. Where is the true Christian Hierarchy who would do the same for this woman? Christ offered Himself upon the Cross for us. Christ told us: “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (St John 15.13). Hypocrites. We are all hypocrites. Only Mariam Ibrahim and those who have
    offered and are offering their lives for Christ can say that they are True Christians. The rest of us are hypocrites, christian atheists at best.
