Support: Rt Rev John Pritchard
* The churches in Iraq are being firebombed in the name “of the most merciful, the most compassionate”… The Coptic Christians of Egypt are under siege and persistently attacked, their shops smashed up and their daughters kidnapped and forcibly married off to Muslims. Christians are driven out of Bethlehem and Nazareth, their ancestral homelands, Christian schoolchildren are being beheaded in Sulawesi and Cristian churches in Kenya have just been burned to the ground with their congregation inside.
That doesn’t prevent the deluded village idiot of Oxford, the Rev John Pritchard, to tell us that sheep and wolves can all live side by side, if only they would all eat grass.
Lets all sing ‘kumbayaaahhhh’….
THE BISHOP of Oxford has rejected another senior clergyman’s fears that piping out the call to prayer in East Oxford could create a “no-go area” for non-Muslims.
The Rt Rev John Pritchard backed plans for the call to prayer in Oxford – rejecting controversial comments made by the Anglican church’s only Asian bishop, the Rt Rev Dr Michael Nazir-Ali, of Rochester.
Bishop Michael had said that attempts were being made to impose an “Islamic character” on communities, creating “no-go areas” where people of different faiths would find it hard to live and work.
But Bishop John said: “I want to distance myself from what the Bishop of Rochester has said.
“I have been with the House of Bishops for the past three days and we agreed there are no no-go areas in this country that we are aware of, and that in all parts of the country there are good inter-faith relationships developing.”
In November, it emerged that leaders at Oxford’s Central Mosque, in Manzil Way, were considering asking for planning permission to issue the call to prayer from the mosque – and Bishop John said he was “very happy” with the move.
Bishop John added: “I would say to anyone who has concerns about the call to prayer to relax and enjoy our community diversity and be as respectful to others as you would hope they would be respectful to you.”
* Trouble is, they don’t respect you, Bishop. They want you dead or converted…
Bishop John said his role meant he acted as a community leader for all faiths, and believed he was respected as such by the Muslim community as by his own.
* This suicidal nutbag ‘of all faiths’ must be the mentor of Prince Charles, who is equally deluded…
Sardar Rana, a spokesman for Oxford Central Mosque, has also attacked Bishop Michael’s claims, and said the bishop should be more “broad-minded”.
The burning churches of Iraq…
He said: “It will not create a no-go area. We welcome every religion and we respect other people.
* No you don’t. You ‘welcome every religion’Â only as long as its Islamic.
“I am 100 per cent sure people will like it when they hear the holy verses on the loudspeaker. We are not saying anything bad.”
