While Islamic terrorists in various parts of the world are burning churches and executing Christians, crosses are being removed from some European churches — by church officials themselves.
And it’s being done in deference to Muslim sensibilities.
In what would be an example of a church exhibiting supposed Christian charity in a very secular way, InfoWars tells us:
A Protestant church in Oberhausen, Germany is set to remove Christian crosses, altars and pulpits in order to accommodate 50 Muslim migrants who were invited to stay in the building.
“The parish had offered that to the city,” Oberhausen city spokesperson Rainer Suhr told media outlets.
“Before the refugees can move in, the seats have to be taken away. Also the altar, the pulpit and font are movable,” said the superintendent of the Oberhausen church district Oberhausen, Pastor Joachim Deterding.
Sanitary facilities with washing machines will be installed next to the church, while free lunches will also be delivered to the migrants.
While some might understand the moving of benches and making room for bodies, making room for biases is a different matter. And while the original source doesn’t seem to make perfectly clear whether all crosses will be purged along with the altar in Oberhausen, a prelate in Sweden left no doubt about her intentions. As the Express reports:
Earlier this month the Bishop of Stockholm told a church in her diocese to remove all signs of the cross to make the building “more inviting” for Muslim worshippers.
She also said the direction of Mecca should be marked and called Muslim refugees “angels.”
Eva Brunne added: “It is important that there are places for praying sisters and brothers and we show hospitality and tolerance, regardless of faith.
“Good people of different beliefs must be able to meet and help each other.”
Of course, along with the definition of “good,” what constitutes “help” is the crux of the matter, as a disgruntled priest in Brunne’s diocese pointed out. The Express continued:
