DUKE UNIVERSITY STARTS FORCED AMPLIFIED BROADCASTS OF THE MUSLIM CALL TO PRAYER FROM BELL TOWER
Y’all Qaeda is aghast that Muslim students will be allowed to be called to prayer (once a week) from the interfaith Duke Chapel Bell Tower. You see, it’s creeping Sharia and if you have a child at Duke (presumably under the age of consent?), you should pull him/her out of school, says the author of this piece:
“The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer” – Barack Obama
The Islamization of America continues, as it has since Obama was elected in 2008, at a frightening pace. Public amplified broadcasts of the Muslim call to prayer exists in Muslim majority countries, and is a symbol that they have taken that nation over. If I had a child attending Duke University they would pulled out so fast it would make your head spin.
Islam is not compatible with any free society, it is an religious ideology of forced, violent submission. Every nation where it is dominant is in chaos. Islam is against all American values and ideals, and has no place in a free society.
The azan is the Devil’s call to prayer, don’t answer it.
It’s not polite to not answer a call. And I always thought Y’all Qaeda was marked by good manners!
The essay continues in that rich vein of nutty islamaphobia for a while longer. The author, who remains unidentified, sounds like a reasonable, thoughtful guy, who probably has never heard the nightly bells calling the Xristian faithful to Vespers, so the thought of a once-a-week call to prayer for mooselins is just giving those people dominion over God’s own sweet baby (white) Jeebus.
He concludes with a call to action and a web form to send your protestations to Duke to “let them know how you feel about their forced indoctrination of Islam on American citizens.” Which is entirely different from Y’all Qaeda’s forced indoctrination of Xristianity on American citizens, some of whom happen to be Muslims. But that’s different, as we all know.
Here’s the press release from Duke, so you can compare and contrast:
DURHAM, NC – Members of the Duke Muslim Students Association will chant a weekly call-to-prayer from the Duke Chapel bell tower beginning Friday, Jan. 16.
The chant, called the “adhan,” announces the start of the group’s jummah prayer service, which takes place in the chapel basement each Friday at 1 p.m. The service is open to the public.
The chant lasts about three minutes and will be moderately amplified.
“The adhan is the call to prayer that brings Muslims back to their purpose in life, which is to worship God and serves as a reminder to serve our brothers and sisters in humanity,” said Imam Adeel Zeb, Muslim chaplain at Duke. “The collective Muslim community is truly grateful and excited about Duke’s intentionality toward religious and cultural diversity.”
“This opportunity represents a larger commitment to religious pluralism that is at the heart of Duke’s mission,” added Christy Lohr Sapp, the chapel’s associate dean for religious life. “It connects the university to national trends in religious accommodation.”
Muslim students at Duke are supported by the university through the Office of Student Affairs’ Muslim Life department, which hosts religious services, community service projects and interfaith events. The Center for Muslim Life provides on-campus social and spiritual meeting spaces for students as well as opportunities for counseling and advising.
