NJ church to broadcast Islamic call to prayer Sunday

A great day to sleep late in Jersey, as long as you’re not within earshot of St John’s in Montclair. via Interfaith Service at St. John’s Parish in Montclair | Baristanet.

This Sunday morning, May 22, at 10 a.m., the sounds of the adhan — the Muslim call to prayer — will ring out in St. John’s Episcopal Church Montclair.

While there’s no minaret at the church, the words of “Allahu akbar,” (God is greater) will none-the-less invite both Christians and Muslims to worship side by side. During the interfaith service, verses from the Holy Qur’an will complement readings from the Holy Bible, including during Communion, embracing the traditions of both religions.

Reverend Andrew Butler, Rector of St. John’s parish since September 1, 2010, decided to have this service in order to demonstrate that both Islam and Christianity stem from Abrahamic roots, as well as to dispell negative stereotypes about the Muslim faith.

“I’ve grown concerned about the demonization of Muslims. I want Montclair to develop an understanding of the religion.” Reverend Butler stated.

In addition to Butler, speakers will include Anisa Mehdi, a scholar and journalist who will describe what it means to be a Muslim in America and Abdul-Alim Mubarak-Rowe, an assistant Imam at Masjid Waarith ud Deen in Irvington, a media consultant to the American Muslim Alliance and a journalist.

The Reverend went on to say, “We are trying to find ways to blend our community through religion. It’s hard, but we can accomplish it through this organic event and working together through outreach and other ministries of compassion.”

This interfaith service isn’t only trying to blend religions, is also a way to invite the public to visit St. John’s Episcopal Church. After the service, at 11am, conversation about Islam and Islam in America will continue.

Here’s how the blended religion reads: Love your neighbor, as long as he’s not a Jew or Christian…or atheist, or Buddhist, or anything that isn’t Muslim.

O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends… ~“Holy” Koran 5:052

Ignorance is bliss, dhimmitude is suicidal.

  1. As a Catholic I wanted to confirm St. John’s is NOT a RC church:

    SAINT JOHN’S EPISCOPAL CHURCH. 55 Montclair Ave. Montclair, NJ 07042. The Reverend Andrew G. Butler, III, Rector. (973)-746-2474

  2. Sorry Revend Butler. Islam is completely incompatible with all other religions as it is not a religion but a political entity that seeks to encompass the entire world to the exclusion of all other systems. It is mandated to Lie, Kill, intimidate and do whatever is necessary to accomplish those ends. It will not blend with your beliefs but will use them as a weapon to destroy as they use their children as weapons of war.

    Do these guys really think the islamic alla shares any kinship with our Christian God

    Al Tabarani, in Al Awsat, said, “Lies are sins except when they are told for the welfare of a Muslim or [for] saving him from a disaster.

    mohammed quote….Bin Maslama then said, “Give me permission to deceive him with lies so that my plot will succeed.”
    Mohammed replied, “You may speak falsely to him.”

    sura 3:54 And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and
    Allah is the best of schemers.
    . sura 6:123 And thus have We made in every city great ones of its wicked ones, that they
    should plot therein. They do but plot against themselves, though they perceive not.

    Personally I prefer
    John 8:44 (King James Version)
    Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    but of course this is just my own view

  4. Thyis is pure unadulterated crap, Maybe the muslims will demonstrate or riot because Episcopal church welcomes homosexuals and islam doesn’t

  5. The wonders of stupidity never cease!

  6. Idiots. I take it the verses from the Koran which they’ll read won’t include the parts about beheading unbelievers or practicing pedophilia.

  7. I don’t know, sounds fine to me. The Reverend seems to be smarter than most.

  9. FILE A GROTESQ NOISE COMPLAINT against this intrusion of CHRISTANITY. PICKET THE UNGODLY CHURCH doing this DIRTY DEED TO GOOD CHRISTIAN FOLKS. Interupt the PAGAN SERVICE like the MUSLIM MARXIST DO. What a crime against the CHRISTIAN FAITH. OSTRASIZE the so called CHARLITAN MINISTER 24/7 for being a traitor to the faith that kept this COUNTRY SAFE. LOCK and LOAD.

  11. But Allah is not the same god as the God of the Bible, so does that mean they will also be throwing in Buddha, and Mother Earth and oh how about the study of the Bahai ? and on and on ??????????
    Now that”s real inclusiveness.

  12. Does the Reverend not know that Bibles are illegal in many Muslim countries? Does he not know that you can’t bring one Bible into Saudi Arabia, even for your own personal use, even if you intend to take it with you when you leave.

    Does the Reverend not know that practicing another faith is apostasy, a crime punishable by death in many Muslim nations such as Saudi Arabia and Iran?

    Is he aware that homosexuality is punishable by death in many Islamic-controlled nations under sharia state law, as dictated by the Koran, by the Hadiths, or interpretations, of the Koran?

    Certainly he must also be somewhat aware of the treatment of women in Muslim nations, a treatment that if merely cultural, happens to span a wide swath of disparate Islamic cultures?

    What explains this stubborn selective vision by certain lefty types?

  13. WHAT A FLAGRANT DISGRACE.

  14. @ Creeping Sharia – Thank you for this post.

  15. You don’t minister to Muslims by worshiping with them, but by witnessing to them!

  16. This faithless excuse for a priest is enemy more self loathing than all the dhimmis in academia. He’s worse than dhimmis bomber. He’ll probably ask to give the invocation at the Ground Zero Mosque.He must have a congregation of fascists.

  17. another example of brilliant liberal thinking.Pathetic.

  18. “And God spoke all these words, saying: ‘I am the LORD your God…

    ONE: ‘You shall have no other gods before Me.’

    Period. The pope should ex communicate avery priest displaying such behaviour

  19. “I’ve grown concerned about the demonization of Muslims. I want Montclair to develop an understanding of the religion.” Reverend Butler stated.

    Problem is REV, that Islam is the demon breathing death down your ‘holier than thou’ neck! Apparently YOU have NOT read the Quar`an!

    Allah commands these 7th Century barbarians to ‘kill’ you and your pathetic flock, “wherever you find them”…they have found you REV and you are a Dhimmi dimwit they take you to be!

    What is it REV, Jesus said said, “There is NO way to Heaven/GOD except through me” and our GOD is OMNIPOTENT or “Allah Akubar” their God is greater and Jesus is NOT the SON of GOD, he is Mohammed’s brother?

  20. This ecumenicalism, this embrace of all faiths, it’s great, but realize that it only goes in one direction. There is no equivalent in Islam.

  21. islam is of the devil so their “god” is not “greater”.

    Why aren’t you , the kuffar ( the hated, lowest of low) protesting this?

  22. To all members of this church, repeat to the good reverend ” Oh you who believe! do not take the Jews and the christians as friends. Holy Koran 5:052. Please repeat to the good Rev of Monclair.

  23. DISGRACEFUL BETRAYAL OF ALL SUFFERING CHRISTIANS IN MUSLIM HELL HOLES!!!!
    I would like THIS CHURCH to beam into their planned church service ( full of muslim hypocrites) a direct link by phone and tv to the suffering Egyptian Copts in Egypt, the slaughtered Christian communities in Iraq, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Sudan, and see the disgusting murderous behaviour of muslims directed to these helpless communities!
    I would like these poor people to hold up the photos of their butchered loved ones, the headless, those without arms, babies chopped up, you know , THE REAL DEAL of what muslims are DAILY doing to their CHRISTIAN minorities…I AM DISGUSTED.
    I would NEVER attend the “church” of this traitor to the Christian faith !
    ..What was that that Jesus said about false shepherds who lead others astray?

  24. They’re worried about one 10:00 a.m. call to prayer?

    Got news for ya, Muslim prayer is FIVE times a day. If they do it once, it’s a TEST case.

    Allow it, and it will quickly turn into a five times a day thing starting verrrry early in the morning every day including Sundays.

    Truly, if the non-Muslim population around this mosque allowes this, then they get exactly what they deserve.

  25. Solving islamic poverty

    A well known Islamic leader in Egypt by the name of Abu Ishak Al Huweini, who often appears on Egyptian TV, has recently said the following in Arabic and I (not me:) ) have translated it into English:
    And if anyone prevents our dawa or stands in our way, then we must kill them or take as hostage and confiscate their wealth, women and children. Such battles will fill the pockets of the Mujahid who can return home with 3 or 4 slaves, 3 or 4 women and 3 or 4 children.
    PLEASE READ IT ALL — the true islam exposed (again)

  26. I agree with every one of the enlightened Christians who understand the dangers of catering to the so called moderate Muslim. There is no such thing.

    I think however, that in order to stop these misguided “Ministers” we as the believers of Christ and his gospel need to join the ranks of those that are protesting the “Creeping Sharia” in our Country. Sure we should be a people of prayer, but also a people of action. We don’t need to be known as murderers, but we can be known as fearless in confronting deception head on.

    One other note that keeps annoying me so much. These so called ministers keep saying that Islam and Christianity come from the same root. This is just another great lie and plain deception. There is no sharing of the root. Without getting into a long discourse here, Abraham had two sons, Ishmael from Sarah’s concubine or servant & Issac born directly from Sarah. The most that can be said is that Ishmael is the father of the Arabs however, Abraham Ishmael’s father is known to us as the father of the Judeo/Christian faith. Islam came into play many many years later whereas Christianity is a continuation of G-d’s plan of redemption as promised in Genesis.

    I just wish that these so called ministers would get their theology right, but I understand that we are living in the end times and people have itching ears now more than ever. They will sell their souls to the Devil and sleep with the enemy for peace and think that they have G-d’s favor, but they don’t. As they cry and say peace, peace, destruction will fall on them all. It has in the middle east and where ever Muslims go and thus it will here as well. They are a wild ass of a people whose hand is against everyone.

  27. Chrislam is heresy!

    Of course, that fact doesn’t excuse nor explain why houses of Jesus should commit such flagrant heresy.

    And just think of how many young people in this church are swallowing the swill of syncretism!

    • The responsabilty lays with the Pope or he will speak up and expose this for what this is ‘herecy’ or he’ll be pretty soon out of a job.

      • It isn’t a catholic church

        • I’m just saying as the Pope he should make a statement condemming all such ‘actions’ there’s no ‘light’ version of Roman Catholic ,Protestants or Islam for this matter ,as stated this week in Turkey by a leading Sudanese law professor ” …….“There is no such thing as Islamic something”.There’s only ISLAM

        • Its true that the Pope does not represent a vast majority of Christians, but to the rabid muslims he is the symbol of the hated Christian faith, and especially of the Crusades the church led to drive back the muslim hordes..So in a way he would have an impact…but the RC church has also embraced Ecumenicalism at the Vatican by holding interfaith services where they had representatives of every belief system including Shamans, witchdoctors, muslim imams,buddhist monks, etc…so it would be a little hypocrytical for the Pope to speak out against this church, huh!
