Copenhagen: Four new mosques. 16 churches to be closed.
Until now Muslims in the capital of Denmark have managed to squeeze into basements and rented facilities. Islam is growing in Copenhagen, and the local politicians in the Copenhagen municipality — which has a Socialist mayor — have agreed to allow the building ofÂ four brand new mosques, of which at least one will have minarets.
Now the Diocesan Council of Copenhagen has decided to close 16 churches, because nobody, or hardly anybody, ever attends the sermons. Translated from Danish by Nicolai Sennels, Jyllands-Posten April 19: “16 churches in Copenhagen will be shut down“:
The Diocesan Council in Copenhagen has decided to close 16 churches in Copenhagen. It happens after it has emerged that several priests are preaching in empty or almost empty churches on Sundays.”We had a meeting where we have decided to close 16 churches. It was a unanimous decision,” says Inge Lise Pedersen, Chairman of the Board.
In addition to the 16 churches, one more church might be closed as well.
Writes Stephen Larssen:
Perhaps there’ll be a letter to the editor in a Copenhagen newspaper much like the one from a Muslim in my city who rather mockingly – well, I thought it mockingly even if he did his best to keep it well hidden – wrote that he would regret it if the church in the Muslim street was closed, because he would “miss the chat and the free coffee” always available.
As JihadWatch recently reported: “Copenhagen: Four new mosques. 16 churches to be closed.” More JihadWatch on the Muslim dominated area of NÃ¸rrebro in Copenhagen:
“Danish ghetto: pay 1,800 dollars for being ‘black and Christian’“, “Denmark: Islamic group seeks to introduce “Sharia zones” in Copenhagen“, “Denmark: 10-12 Muslims pull four tourists out of their car and stab and beat them — Muslim gang sees the park as ‘their area‘” – etc.
Translated by Aurora, Den Korte Avis, July 6: “The Muslim Brotherhood has a mosque at NÃ¸rrebro“, etc.
… This is the third planned mosque in Copenhagen. The other one is at Mimersgade (a mosque connected to Iran). They also want to raise and collect money to build a grand mosque at Amager.
The politicians are thrilled
