Kiwi Methodist to Promote Mohammedanism….

Is it naiveté, is it cupidity and stupidity, is is wilful blindness or is it collective insanity or all of it combined? What makes western clergy submit in droves to Mohammedan mores?

Christian minister plans to mark Muslim festival of Ramadan

Methodist priest Francis Ritchie from Auckland will be observing Ramadan to help bring two major religions together.

A Christian minister wants to break down negative stereotypes about Islam and he is going to observe one of the religion’s most holy festivals to do it.

Francis Ritchie, based at the Wesleyan Methodist Church in east Auckland, will be taking part in the first two weeks of the sacred, month-long event.

Ritchie says with recent media hype around a lot of negative events associated with Islam – such as the campaign by Islamic State –  it is time to engage in a different way.

Having previously fasted for Lent, Ritchie isn’t worried about the practical side of not eating all day but there are a myriad concerns and sensitivities from both Christians and Muslims which he will have to juggle.

He is not observing Ramadan as a first step to becoming Muslim nor is he beginning to head down any sort of “strange path” as some have suggested. “I guess there’s always concern about engaging something really different. But most people have been really receptive.”

Ramadan this year begins on June 17 and runs for 30 days. Observers abstain from food, drink and other pleasures between dawn and dusk. The point is to focus the mind on prayer and spirituality and free it from distractions.

Charity is considered a big part and many Muslims choose to donate more than usual during the month.

Pregnant and breastfeeding women, children and those who are unwell are excused from taking part.

Anwar Ghani of the Federation of Islamic Associations says Ritchie is doing a lovely thing to engage with Muslim New Zealanders.

“I think, it is brave of him to connect with Muslim community on the ground of spirituality and promoting better understanding and bond of humanity between people regardless of faith.”

Ghani says messages of goodwill are often received from the Vatican and many Christian leaders before and during Ramadan.

Ritchie has blogged that he hopes doing Ramadan  will help build relationships and understanding between two religions.

“Too often we hold those who are different from us at a distance. At its worst this can lead to degrading others who don’t fit our image of what life is supposed to be and the results can be ugly… I want to see my Muslim friends with the eyes of God. Standing at a distance discussing Islam only through the lens of headlines won’t achieve that. So I want to step into their lives.”

A Muslim friend will be helping Ritchie through the experience and they will occasionally break their fasts together at sun down. He says the Muslim people he has spoken to were encouraging but as with any community, there might be those who didn’t like what he was trying to do.

Ritchie will not be taking part in the entire Ramadan period because of family commitments in early July.

  1. Hello there……its me again…….Don Laird……

    Human garbage.

    Human garbage turned into political weapons by a combination of the treasonous Leftist/Liberals, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the Muslim Brotherhood and a wide range of other Islamic groups seeking global domination.

    1. If you care to see humanity’s lowest common denominator listen to the screeching, the ranting, the hostility and the sense of entitlement of this Muslim filth……….turn to 3:04 to 4:15 of this Al Jazeera propaganda piece…….

      This, along with thousands more of her violent, screeching, hostile, criminal, threatening, terrorist, parasitic, predatory Muslim relatives and cohorts will be found gathering across Europe demanding largess……….or else!!!!!

      1. Turn to the 2:00 minute mark of this video to see the grateful new African citizens in action….

  2. So…….

    ….ask yourselves a question and while you do be truthful, be realistic.

    If waves of weaponized human garbage are being used to destroy Europe and this destruction is supported and promoted by a treasonous Leftist/Liberal EU and a wide range Leftist/Liberal fifth columnists would not the citizens of Europe be justified in taking up arms and arresting those guilty of treason and as well, providing effective military opposition to the weaponized human garbage?

    Food for thought

      1. Hi Blitz2b. I posted at length on his blog. I hope it helps the man to realise what Islam is. He is sleepwalking into deception. Poor fool! It worries me that such people can be ordained and in charge of a congregation of Christians while Not Having A Clue!

        Even just a decent knowledge of the Bible should suffice to keep people from adopting Islam or from accepting as true the Islamic claim that the deity called “Allah” in the Qur’an is the same as the one we call “God” of the Bible.

  3. So ya wanna share ramalamadamadingdong with the ‘slimes? Then don’t go half way~ for the full duration; the full Monti. Eat, drink and smoke nothing between sunrise and sunset. Pig out at sunset. Observe the five compulsory prayers each day. Practice sedaka. Go the whole nine yeards.

    On Sunday, put on white gloves, take a Koran to the lecturn and read it to your congregation. Begin with Surah Al-Fatiha, read through Surah Al-Imran, then skip to Surah Al-Anfal & At-taubah.

    Instead of the usual creed, read Surah Al-Baqarah 2.286.

  4. Curiosity kills the cat. Francis Ritchie is too enamoured with Mohammedaism. He will not listen to those who are trying to warn him.

  5. Where’s the reciprocation? Why is it only up to christians to promote multifaith understanding? This guy is a dhimmi idiot and he should be kicked out of his church.
