I’m at a loss to describe this abomination in polite terms. And, unlike other abominations, I do not find it amusing. So I’ll just get to the point. Pembroke College, Oxford had a Muslim preach in its chapel:
For the first time in Pembroke College’s 500-year history, a Muslim, Dr Taj Hargey – from the Summertown Islamic Congregation in Oxford – was welcomed to deliver a sermon at its chapel.
The Rev Dr Andrew Teal, of Pembroke College, said he had been trying to get a Muslim Imam to deliver a service at the chapel for many years and he believed it was a first.
“I think what we are doing today is very unusual, certainly it’s the first time I have heard of it being done at the college. . . .
Well, Dr. Teal, there is a reason it had not been done. The chapels at Oxford were founded to be Christian. To have a Muslim preacher contradicts the faith and is surely a gross violation of the foundation of Pembroke if its founding documents are remotely akin to those of other Oxford colleges of long standing. What you have committed, sir, is a betrayal . . . and an abomination.
Thanks to reader St. Nikao for bringing this to my attention.
