Episcopalians Host Radical Muslim Groups At National Cathedral Event
November 17, 2014
November 12, 2014 – San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Episcopal church will be hosting a Friday Muslim prayer service on November 14 at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. In attendance will be two notorious Islamist groups, the Council on American Islamic Realtions [CAIR] and the Islamic Society of North America [ISNA].
About this matter, the Daily Caller observes, "The Islamists expected at the cathedral include representatives from the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). In 2009, both groups were confirmed as co-conspirators in a conspiracy to deliver funds to the Gaza-based Hamas jihad group, which regularly launches attacks to kill Jews in Israel."

As detailed on internationally respected terrorism expert Steven Emerson's website, The Investigative Project on Terrorism, "Federal District Court Judge Jorge Solis in a 2009 decision stated: "The government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, with NAIT, the Islamic Association for Palestine, and with Hamas," U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis said in the July 1, 2009, ruling.."

The Episcopal church in countenancing this event, aside from it being an act of abject dhimmitude, is granting some of the worst players in the American Muslim community a very much undeserved mantle of legitimacy.
We would highly encourage the leaders of the Episcopal church, which already is seen by many as heterodox and post-Christian, to reconsider this noxious dog and pony show.
Tolerance, absent judgment leads to a toxic moral relativism which threatens Western Civilization and the religious freedom which forms an essential part of its foundation.

The prayers were followed by a sermon delivered by South African Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool.
The idea for the service came after Campbell (Canon Gina Gilland Campbell of the Washington National Cathedral)
