According to a recent blog post from The Last Crusade, congregations in several metropolitan areas -- Houston, Atlanta, Seattle, and Detroit -- preached sermons and held Sunday school lessons recently on the founder of Islam, Mohammad, whom Muslims consider a prophet. Qurans were also placed in the pews next to Bibles.
It is only by the mercies of the Lord that I did not spontaneously combust when I read about the Qurans being placed next to Bibles.
But what is with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in the image above going whole hog, er, non-pork product for this schlock? I thought the Cumberland Presbyterian denomination was staunchly orthodox. If any readers wish to inform me what the heck is going on, feel free to comment.
RETRACTION: OOPS! It appears the above image is an internet prank. I now notice the sign of this “Beulah Cumberland Presbyterian Church” has been used for other tomfoolery as well. But now I am the fool. My apologies to my readers and to the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Mea culpa!
And I have sniffed around some more, and this whole story doesn’t pass the smell test. There is a Chrislam religion in Nigeria, but I am unsure how much of it in America is real and how much a leg-pulling attempt at humor. So I am retracting the whole thing at least until I find out more. Again, my apologies.
