Australia: Christian leaders demand chapel in new hospital that is to have special prayer area for Muslims

OUTRAGED church leaders are lobbying the State Government for a Christian chapel to be built at the new Perth Children’s Hospital, warning “we need to stand up for our beliefs”.

Six religious leaders, including former tennis great Margaret Court, have written to Health Minister Kim Hames, demanding he “reverse the decision” not to have a dedicated area for Christians to pray at the $1.2 billion hospital, which opens next year.

And Perth Anglican Archbishop Roger Herft has also written to Premier Colin Barnett about the need for a Christian chapel, likening a planned multi-faith centre to “an empty shell for people who are grasping for hope”.

Mrs Court, the senior pastor of the Victory Life Centre and the wife of former Liberal state president Barry Court, accused the State Government of “bowing” to the demands of minority groups by planning for a separate Muslim prayer area…

  • This calls for a riot.

    All politicians that kowtow to Muslims should be voted out of office.

      We have a big job to educate the electorate which still thinks there is a ‘good version’ of Islam that is different from the evil, misogynistic, supremacist Cult of Death.

      I prefer that they be hung for treason, but I am willing to wait for the civil war to see that done

    It’s a known fact that Muslims will often take over a prayer space for themselves, shutting down the Christian and Jewish ones.

    • WalterBannon

      that is solved by banning islam and deporting all muslims

  • winniec

    When Mohammedans pray they must curse Jews and Christians and express disapproval for everyone else. The result is a SUPREMACIST and hate-filled attitude resulting from Muslim prayers. The lack of generosity in Islam towards ‘others’ and women makes Islam unacceptable to receive public funding for their hate-filled cult. They should pay for their own religious facilities. Thanks to Canon Mark Durie’s writings about REAL Islam, Australians seem to be better informed about the threat of the Death Cult.

    Recisiprosity matters.
    No “Christian-only prayer space”, no hospital.
    Make the choice just that stark.

  • WalterBannon

    a separate Muslim prayer area is a great idea… as long as the room is airtight, locks from the outside only, and has cyanide gas outlets that activate once the door is closed.

    Isn’t there an animal, insect or reptile (the cobra, maybe) that hypnotizes its prey before he eats it?

    How about in the garage? A couple of parking spaces in the back could be repurposed. Let’s be generous.

      Can we rig it so it fills up with menstrual blood five times a day?
