Bad enough that the Episcopalians allowed this travesty; now we have this:
Why would that have been important, you ask? Quite simple:
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? (2 Corinthians 6:14-15, ESV)Let me remind you of something else:
Legend has it that when the Muslims conquered Jerusalem in the year 637, Sophronius, the Patriarch of Jerusalem, invited the caliph Umar to pray in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Umar declined, explaining that if he did, the Muslims would convert the church into a mosque, as Muslim prayers had been uttered there.
If so, guess what? The chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives, in the eyes of Muslims everywhere, is now a mosque.
Nice going, Mr. Boehner.
