Heckler interrupts first-ever Muslim prayer service at Washington Cathedral; social media backs her up

St John’s Episcopal Church in Europe also opened its doors to Muslims for Friday prayers last March.

A renowned Christian sanctuary welcomed Muslim worshippers on Friday for a first ever Muslim prayer ceremony, to the chagrin of many who disagreed with the idea of religious unity between the two faiths in the same church.

Due to concerns from Muslim organizers, the event was not publicized and it was loaded with heavy security, including the checking of every bag and name before entrance, according to the Washington Post.

After the traditional Muslim prayers, religious leaders spoke about joining together to fight extremists who hijack Islam.

The service was interrupted by a “well-dressed middle-aged woman,” according to the Post. Before being escorted out, she rose up and shouted “America was founded on Christian principles. . . . Leave our church alone!”

In a Facebook post Thursday, the Rev. Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse and Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, wrote the following in opposition to the ceremony. As of Saturday morning, his post has received 40,958 shares and 72,515 likes.

Tomorrow, the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.–one of the most prominent Episcopal churches in America–will host a Muslim prayer service to Allah. It’s sad to see a church open its doors to the worship of anything other than the One True God of the Bible who sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to earth to save us from our sins. Jesus was clear when He said, “I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).
