She's not leading a Christian prayer service, it's a muslim prayer service as stated in the article. The event is taking place in St John's
Cathedral ( a beautiful work of architecture I might add) because this woman was turned away from three mosques, and an art gallery after threats of
Can you imagine the turmoil if she were to hold this service, and a bomb were to go off? If we think the Chrisitan Vs. Muslim rivalry is bad
Just think about the reaction if St John's, probably the most beautiful, historically important church in the western hemisphere, were to be damaged
in an explosion targetting the muslim woman speaking there. Speaking as a theologian, that would be an event to rival 9/11 in terms of its impact on
the world, and on the opinions of the masses.
It could be the final straw to break the camels back, and lead us into a full fledged, out-in-the-open holy war. I for one am hoping nothing happens.
The service itself is a good step in the right direction, and the church is one of the most beautiful man-made structures I've ever had the pleasure
of spending the night in. If something were to happen to it, or to the woman making this bold step, it would be very upsetting personally, and I'm
sure many people, Christians and Muslims alike, echo that sentiment.
