Atlas Shrugs provides an update on the California Episcopal church aiding and abetting Islamists.
We had operatives at the event. Here is their first report.
Muslims gloat over take-over of Christian church
As the Muslim Public Affairs Council settled into their convention home at All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena, there was hardly a whimper from the Rector Ed Bacon. And that whimper wasn’t over the Muslims praying their anti-Christian and anti-Jewish prayers three times in the facility. (see this ) Rather, it was over the nationwide-outrage over All Saints’ partnering with the American Muslims’ political arm, giving them free use of their campus. Rev. Bacon lamented, “Christians can be very hateful.” One-third of the convention’s agenda was devoted to a pity party analyzing what the opposition to the conference location meant, moderated by Channel 4 Newscaster Beverly White. The “backlash” was called one of the most vile and mean-spirited campaign in memory.
The Muslims at the conference could hardly retain their exuberance over their unprecedented coup. Gloated speaker Haris Tarin, “We have made a church our home!” Muslim-convert Alejandro Beutel observed that by 2050 whites will be a minority in the U.S., and he asked, “Are Muslims up to the challenge.” Their mission must be to be marginalize and silence the racist, Islamophobic bigots who are defaming Islam. Dustin Craun asserted that Islamophobes are part of a long history of white supremacy dating back to the Klu Klux Klan. One presenter showed a slide that stated, “Islamophobia has become the accepted form of racism in America. (Note: To Muslims, racism isn’t biological – traits that cannot be changed – but rather cultural, indicating their refusal to assimilate or allow freedom of choice with regard to religion.) White Republicans, Pamela Geller, and those who provide financial support to the extremists were among the specific objects of contempt.
The two most repeated words during the conference were “bigotry” and “justice.” MPAC was selling a 400 page book on their agenda titled, “In Pursuit of Justice.” (Note: The Muslim view of “Justice” consists of the commands in the Quran: “And you shall see every nation bowing down; every nation shall be called to its book: today you shall be rewarded for what you did. This is Our book that speaks against you with justice. . . .” (Surah 45:28-29). Rev. Bacon declared, “We have to work towards justice, and to do that we have to join forces.” Perhaps he didn’t see the command in the Quran, “Believers, take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends. They are friends with one another. Whoever of you seeks their friendship shall become one of their number. “ (Surah 5:51)
In view of this specific prohibition, one wonders why Muslims would join forces with Christians? Their agenda was to gain acceptance and support for Islamic Sharia Law via the endorsements by a Christian church as well as by vote-seeking elected officials. The conference brochure contained 14 gushing letters of support from state and federal representatives. Dr. Maher Hathout minced no words about their objective: “Our job is to make Muslims better people. What would be better than the Laws of Allah?”
