UK church holds joint birthday celebration for Muhammad and Jesus

Mawlid (or Milad) is the Islamic festival commemorating the birthday of Mohammed. The only thing it has in common with Christmas is that it isn’t actually the day the celebrated baby was born. Yet All Saints Church in Kingtson upon Thames thinks there’s an interfaith syncretised opportunity to be found in holding a joint birthday celebration for both Mohammed and Jesus – so they put the flags out for both, rejoicing in both, eulogising both, solemnising both, glorifying both, honouring both…

    Britons do seem to hold the patent on terms such as blind, stupid, suicidal and downright fucking precious.

    I understand your point but there are still some of us on “This Sceptred Isle” who have read and understand the Bible and the koran (admittedly in part and in translation) and find this appalling.

      That comes under the category of Islam.

    Lets see, Jesus is the Son of God, God in the flesh. He loves all people, gets angry at the abuse of children, preaches peace, Mohammad was a murdering, child abusing, intolerant swine. Yeah, they have a lot in common.

    Hold on there Burka breath ….what about the Ahmadi muslims that have their prophet from the 1880’s that died in the 1920’s .
    We already have muslims in the public schools that have Mosques on Friday’s, Ramadan events , hijabs and segregated areas for female students that breaks down to muslim girls and muslim girls on their periods as unwashed sluts.

    The Toronto Police that became Official in 1957 had their Uniform designed to be Uniform and religiously Neutral over the Catholic-Protestant tension so anyone can feel that they were treated fairly if the Police were called to help them.
    But that went out the window in the 1980’s to the point where Police can have beards and tattoo’s so that went they arrest and clean cut person it looks like the reverse of the 1960’s where the Cop was clean-cut while the a suspect had long hair , beard and tattoos and maybe a gun or billy stick.
    Ontario just saw 2 Court cased for Honour-killings where 5 brown muslims females died because they didn’t want to wear the Hijab and wanted to be more Canadian. The CBC still hasn’t connected the Dots where if these Muslim
    “refugees” will murder their own daughters , sisters , mothers and Wife for wanting to be more canadian by their garb…………how easy will it be for them to murder us for Being Canadian but strapping bombs to those same daughters and Sisters.
    We’re im porting people that want us DEAD , yet Justin doubled down with his Muslims refugees and open borders while John Tory made Toronto a sanctuary City for any of the 1.5 billion muslims outside canada that can get in canada and head to Toronto .
    City Hall just put large Cement Block barriers around Nathan Phillips square because of the rash of muslims that now use trucks for Jihad to mow down us filthy unbelievers because they’re too stupid to just LEAVE for an islamic hell-hole swamp more suited for their 10th century barbarism .
    Employees at City Hall , that used to condemn generalizing Muslims as violent, now want CUPE to force mayor Tory to install Mental detectors, bullet proof glass and all bags to be search .

    Finally the brain-dead islamophile in the Public Union are getting the true taste of Diversity and embracing illegals as victims wanting to live in peace.
    Wynne thought that the BLM terrorists were an advocate for the oppressed which she supported as victims …..but then the mob was told by CUPE members and others where she lived to go to her street and protest at her house. Bob Rae got a does of reality when his buddies at OCAP and CUPE show up at his home to try and camp on his lawn and harass the rich friends leaving in B-B-Q in the large backyard.

    Won’t be long before the muslims inside the RCMP give out the Addresses to jihadist for the SCOC Judges and every Provincial Judge to slaughter them in one big Jihad. Imam Rockwell freely boasted that we would be an islamic state one muslims have the numbers to do their quranic duty for jihad to take it over for allah and islam .

    But hey… for Tory to tell us how safe Toronto is and how Diversity is our strength to make us rich as the debt races to $6 billion and more Barriers go up as we become like Paris becauise the good muslims aren’t turning in the terrorists inside their mosques.

    Sad when professional christian have no clue about the history of Islam against other religions — or don’t care.

    Appeasement does not work. It is seen as a weakness to be exploited. How many times does this strategy need to fail before Archbishop Cranmer is honest with himself and his flock?

    When confronted and tempted by Satan in the dessert, Jesus renounced the world and the flesh so as not to submit. When confronted and tempted by Satan in the dessert, Mohamed embraced the world and the flesh and founded a religion called “submission.”

    Jesus, described by his followers as the ‘Prince of Peace’, said to those same disciples, “I did not come not to bring peace but the sword. For I have come to turn a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.” (Matthew 10:34-5) In other words, we are each responsible for working out our own salvation, sometimes in contrast to members of our own family. So much for the brotherhood of Man. Yet in the garden before his arrest when told his disciples had two swords, Christ said, that was enough.

    Mohamed said in contrast “And hold firmly to the rope that is Allah all together and do not become divided.” (Qur’an 3:103) and “Humanity is but a single Brotherhood. So make peace with your brethren.” (Qur’an 49:10) And then he set out with the sword to achieve the peace by bringing the whole brotherhood into the fold.

    Dialectics and syncretism be damned. Mohamed’s approach to everything was opposite to Jesus. Any church that tries to blend the two is denying Christ’s own words, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”

    Jesus – suffered on the cross for our sins, healed the blind and lame.

    Mohhamed – broke treaties, made a deal with a demon in a cave, raped women and children.

    Wow, there is so much in common – sarc

  • Why? Mohammad would never share his birthday with a Jew.

    its time to bring back burning at the stake for these “interfaith” douches
