I protest the conversion of OUR National Cathedral into a mosque

Like many people of all faiths across the Nation, I simply could not believe my eyes when I saw the news that the (OUR!) National Cathedral was going to be turned over to a Muslim Prayer Service tomorrow, and, if that wasn’t bad enough, this misadventure was to be co-sponsored by organizations with proven, not simply alleged, ties to radical Islamic groups such as Hamas and were proven, not alleged, to have been involved in the financing of some of these butchers in the Mid East. I thought  about it long and hard and started doing some fairly in-depth research, which revealed that not only was I not alone in the revulsion I felt but that some most highly respected publications felt exactly the same way I did about it. Therefore, I decided to do what I personally wish more citizens would do, even against the often well based feeling that “no one is listening”– if you doubt that, try writing, calling, texting, etc., etc. your Congressman one day– and that is to write a letter to the person I understand from news reports pushed this plan. Here is my latest exercise in putting the First Amendment into practice, no matter whose feathers get ruffled. I only hope it ruffles a lot of them. By the way, indications are, as of this time, some hours after this went out, that, sure enough, “no one is listening”!

Dear Rev. Canon Campbell:

It is with the utmost of respect that I, as a member of the Episcopal Church, protest, as strongly as I know how to use the English language in a civil and respectful manner, the defilement of the National (Episcopal) Cathedral for a Prayer Service by a “religion” one of whose foundational tenets is to “seize them and slay them [infidels—such as Christians and Jews!] wherever you shall find them.” Sura 4:89.

It is also noted that the co-sponsors of this ill-advised (as charitable a descriptive phrase as I can possibly use considering your position) misadventure are:

“Members of known Muslim Brotherhood front groups, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). The Justice Department has identified both as belonging to the Hamas wing of the radical Brotherhood. It’s also implicated them in a Hamas conspiracy to raise millions for Palestinian suicide bombers. These co-sponsors of the National Cathedral jumuah (“for invited guests only”) remain unindicted co-conspirators in a major terror case.”
I also understand that another co-sponsor is the ADAMS Islamic Center, whose Executive Director is Imam Magid, who also serves as President of ISNA, the largest Muslim Brotherhood organization in the United States which was found to be a financial support entity for Hamas in the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial in our Nation’s history, U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation in Dallas in 2008.

I have carefully read the many news reports expressing various levels of outrage and disgust and dismay about this event, allowing our National Cathedral to be converted into a mosque, and have been more than a little disappointed (another most charitable word  for the emotion I really feel) at the fact that your spokesman, Mr. Stapert, “did not know about ISNA and CAIR, even though their official representative will be praying at his cathedral this week”, according to one report, and also said ““I know that there have been allegations about CAIR’s participation in a variety of things [but] I’m not an expert on CAIR”!.

In the event more knowledge might be useful to your Staff, including Mr. Stapert, and perhaps your Good Self as well, I direct your attention to the attached articles which make it abundantly clear that the co-sponsoring organizations of tomorrow’s disgraceful occupation of OUR National Cathedral are closely identified with murderers, beheaders, and practitioners of the most unspeakable acts of barbarism, such as female genital mutilation, the stoning to death of homosexuals, the burning of Coptic Churches in the Middle East – with entire congregations therein!—the kidnapping and enslavement of girls by Boko Haram, the wholesale slaughter of entire Yazidi villages, etc., etc., and your Mr. Stapert should understand these are not mere allegations but are proven facts.

In closing, I could not possibly find a clearer statement of the outrage this episode represents than the opening paragraph of the Editorial in a very highly respected online publication, Investor’s Business Daily, as follows:

“Islamofascism: On Friday, for the first time, the venerable Washington National Cathedral will be used as a mosque, with radical Muslims leading prayers. Islamist infiltration of the Beltway is nearly complete.

Drunk with “interfaith” tolerance, church officials agreed to let the Islamists make “a statement.” About what? How gullible they are?”

It is with the deepest sadness, Rev. Canon Campbell, that I must record you have furnished a loud and clear answer to that question, and based upon the numerous reports I have seen, it is painfully obvious that I am hardly alone in feeling that your action is nothing short of a sheer outrage, as is most plainly illuminated by the following simple question: when will the Dean of the Cathedral be celebrating Holy Eucharist in the ADAMS Islamic Center?

Most Respectfully,

OK Lawmaker Accused Of Making Anti-Muslim Remarks

I studied this Facebook post to be sure I could judge it for myself, and I challenge anyone to do the same and then show me where there is anything incorrect or inaccurate in one single word of this post by this gentleman in Sequoyah, Oklahoma. Of course, most of the article is about the guy from CAIR getting, as my pals in Arkansas would put it, “all bowed up” about these perfectly accurate statements – what else is new? I do sincerely hope that Mr. Bennett has retained the services of one or more very competent sharpshooters for extra security, as I understand ISIS is already in El Paso and it won’t take them long to get to Sequoyah. Perhaps he might consider, as he is in Oklahoma, getting some Redskins to watch his back… just sayin’…..

State Rep. John Bennett of Sequoyah wrote the comments on Monday night. Oklahoma’s Council on American-Islamic Relations called on Republican Party leaders to denounce the comments on Wednesday.

OKLAHOMA CITY -A controversial statement made on Facebook by a state lawmaker has outraged Muslims in Oklahoma.

The Islamic community demanded an apology after a state representative posted on Facebook to be “wary of Muslim Americans” and then shared a link about the ISIS brutality in the Middle East.

State Rep. John Bennett of Sequoyah wrote the comments on Monday night. Oklahoma’s Council on American-Islamic Relations called on Republican Party leaders to denounce the comments on Wednesday.

“I was really disappointed that someone who is elected to represent the people would put something so negative out there,” said Adam Soltani, CAIR-Oklahoma Executive Director.

CAIR-Oklahoma said it wants Representative Bennett to apologize for his comments.

Bennett’s post reads in part, “The Quran clearly states that non-Muslims should be killed… Be wary of the individuals who claim to be ‘Muslim American’. Be especially wary if you’re a Christian.”

“You can take verses out of the Bible or any other holy book out of context. They look good or they look bad depending on how you frame them,” Soltani said. “But the Holy Quran states that you take the life of one innocent person, it’s as if you took all of humanity.”

Bennett said he can say what he wants on his private Facebook page and he sticks by his comments. He said it is ironic a group that fights for First Amendment rights is trampling on his first amendment rights.

Bennett also said he is not taking anything out of context because ISIS militants are using the Quran to carry out beheadings in Iraq and Syria and if they aren’t stopped, the same will happen here.

CAIR has publicly condemned ISIS and called them an extremist group with ideals that are the antithesis of Islam.

“To tell fellow Oklahomans that they need to be wary of someone like myself, that’s concerning and that can only lead to what we fear would be hate crimes and Islamaphobia,” Soltani told News 9.

Soltani said Bennett’s idea that religious extremism is wrong is correct, but relating that to Islam in America is absolutely wrong.

Bennett told News 9 he is not advocating violence against anyone, but wants to educate people. He said he will only apologize if CAIR-Oklahoma condemns any Quran teachings that promote violence against non-Muslims
