Church opens in Qatar:

Thousands of mosques dot the European landscape, but one church in Arabia gives the resident Christians the jitters, any idea why that is?

First Catholic Church Opens in Qatar, Sparking Fear of Backlash Against Christians

* Strange. There are thousands of mosques in the lands of the infidels, behind enemy lines, and there never was a ‘backlash’. Now, after many years, a church opens far out in the desert and the Christinas are shaking in their shoes:

DOHA, Qatar — Qatar’s first Christian church has no cross, no bell and no steeple.

And when 5,000 faithful flock to Our Lady of the Rosary to celebrate its historic consecration this weekend, they pray no one will notice.

Father Tom Veneracion, the parish priest, is worried about a backlash.

“The idea is to be discreet because we don’t want to inflame any sensitivities,” he says. “There isn’t even a signboard outside the church. No signs at all.”

Good Dhimmi. Here’s more…

This, of course, encourages other faiths who also would like to serve their flock…

A Church in Saudi Arabia?

Well, don’t hold your breath…

But its not as if no churches ever existed there: Known as ‘Saudi Arabia’s Petra’, Madain Saleh numbers among the most magical and monumental sites of the Middle East – or it would if it were better known. Built by the Nabataeans in the first century BC, the rock-hewn tombs spread spectacularly over a desert landscape.

The Al-Khuraibah tomb is closed…

Here comes the ‘backlash’

Minarets are provocation, Austrian bishop says

* Yes they are…

Vienna – A high-ranking representative of Austria’s Catholic Church for the first time openly voiced reservations against the construction of minarets. “Mosques with minarets would be a provocation,” Elmar Fischer, bishop of Austria’s westernmost diocese in Vorarlberg, said on Tuesday in a press release.
While Austria’s population had been accepting of prayer rooms and mosques in the past, mosques with minarets would run counter to the feelings of “the majority of Vorarlberg’s population.”

Austria to limit building of mosques

There is, of course, no reciprocity. While Muslims may build their mosques even in the Royal Parks of the Supreme Governor of the Church of England, Christians may not build churches in Islamic lands. And where they exist, they are firebombed, vandalised, and believers live in fear of the consequences of daring to follow their Lord. And the West utters not a word.

  1. I’d rather have infidels leave the ummah than build churches for them there. All this will accomplish is to make infidels easier to hunt down. Leave the cesspool for the turds so that it may stink more than ever.

  2. they pray no one will notice.

    Qatar’s first Christian church has no cross, no bell and no steeple.

    WOW! COMPARE THAT TO HOW MOSLEMS IN THE WEST PUT TOWERING MOSQUES IN NEIGHBORHOODS THAT HAVE NO MOSLEMS AND BLARE THAT ANNOYING CALL TO PRAYER THAT REMINDS ONE OF FINGERNAILS SLOWLY SCRATCHING A CHALKBOARD.

  3. THE CALL TO PRAYER ALSO REMINDS ME OF HOWLING WOLVES GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER FOR A KILL. SAME SONG. SAME TUNE. SAME TONE. KINDA CREEPY.

  4. There was once before a church in Qatar – back in the days when it was British controlled territory. When they got full independence (back about 1973 I think) one of the first things they did was demolish the church. Of course, that was a couple of emirs back. I lived two years in Qatar. It’s far far from being the worst Muslim state. It’s definitely not on my eliminate list for when I get hold of those ‘fire’ buttons.

    Oman has had at least one – and possibly three or four, but of that I’m not certain – church for two or three decades now. I was five years in Oman across three contracts. In my opinion the best of the Muslim states. Absolutely not on my eliminate list. Actually, I quite liked it there.

    There were Jews in Oman too – you could go into villages out in the bondhooks and occasionally see a house or two with a Star of David on the door. Nobody ever troubled them that I could see.

  5. Christians and Christian churches are never going to be safe in that part of the world. Unless the arabs are creeping out of the 7th century and heading for the 21st century. I wonder what kind of security surrounds that church. Do they have bomb sniffing dogs? Metal detectors like the airports do? If not, I can just see the fanatics making their plans….
