Muslims in Church

All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena, California is hosting an Islamist Convention.  They reportedly will be using the church building.  Anyone should be welcome in Gods' house, but they should be doing God's business.  Islam is not a branch of Christianity. Islam does not worship the God of the Bible, Islam does not believe in Jesus as the savior of mankind or as the third part of the Triune God.

There is no reason to permit Muslims to use a Christian church to have a meeting.  Christian churches are sacred ground and should be reserved for sacred purposes.  Churches should do the work of the Christian church, not do the work of pagans or heretics.  Christ gave us the great commission to go forth and convert the world to Christianity, not to host events for those opposed to Christ to do their business.

If Christians want to meet with people of other religions they should do so in public places.  They might even meet on church property in a parish hall, but they should not meet in the church.  Too many people proclaim they are Christians but they don't make any real effort to believe what the historic church has always taught; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
