Christian booted from National Cathedral speaks out


Christine Weick Defends National Cathedral

Christine Weick at National Cathedral 11/14/14

 

Yesterday I joined many bloggers writing about a Christian gal that snuck into the National Cathedral in Washington DC who stage a person protest against Muslims using a Church to perform a Friday Muslim service. I also highlighted the fact that the date chosen by the Muslims (November 14) was the 100th anniversary of the last Ottoman Caliph calling for a Jihad against non-Muslims which led to the Armenian Genocide that spanned 1915 -1919. AND to demonstrated that the date chosen was unlikely a coincidence since the Muslim event in a prominent American Church was sponsored and promoted by Muslim American organizations that concur with Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas in the establishment of a global Caliphate.

 

At the time that I had read about this heroine of a Christian most MSM outlets were not sharing her name and a few Conservative blogs and one guy where I found a decent amount of video feed, provided only her first name – Kristine.

 

Today, largely thanks to WND, I have discovered her name is Christine Weick. Just as Rosa Parks became a name synonymous with the Civil Rights movement and peacefully resisting White Supremacism, so also should Christine Weick’s name become synonymous with Christian Liberty against Multicultural dilution and Islamic Supremacism.

 

Below Leo Hohmann on WND shares the details from Ms. Weick’s perspective which is quite awesome!

Christian booted from National Cathedral speaks out
Tells why she made trip from Tennessee to counter Muslim prayer

It was supposed to be a shining moment for proponents of the interfaith movement.

 

The Islamic “jummah,” or Friday call to prayer, would be held on America’s grandest Christian stage – the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.

 

It was a bold move that had never been tried. Leaders of the Episcopal cathedral said sending prayers up to Allah from a Christian church would show the world that two religions at odds with each other for centuries could “approach the same God” as one body of believers.

 

The stage was set. The prayer rugs were neatly arranged facing Mecca. The lights shone down on the imam for his opening remarks.

 

Not so fast.

 

Christine Weick, a 50-year-old Michigan woman with flowing blonde hair who lives out of her car, rose from the packed National Cathedral, the hall of halls in terms of religious prominence in America, and moved toward the front of the church.

 

She pointed to the cross hanging overhead.

 

That cross seemed to be the one thing nobody wanted to look at, she told WND Saturday in an exclusive interview.

 

The Muslims had set up their prayer rugs in such a way that their backs were turned on the cross, which they consider an alien religious symbol. Jesus was a prophet but was not the son of God and never died on a Roman cross, according to Muslim teaching. Yet, they found themselves staring at a woman who demanded the cross become the center of attention. She then blurted out the message she had traveled all the way from Tennessee to deliver.

 

“Jesus Christ died on that cross. It is the reason we are to worship only Him. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior,” she said. “We have built enough of your mosques in this country. Why don’t you worship in your mosques and leave our churches alone?”

 

She immediately heard voices in the crowd yelling for security.

 

“Black coat, white scarf, blonde hair!” yelled one. “We need to get her out of here now!” someone else cried out.

 

“They were yelling for security, and by that point I was already done saying what I came to say,” Weick told WND.

 

She was promptly escorted out of the sanctuary by two men in suits, who handed her off to a police officer.

She had instantly become a folk hero of sorts for thousands, if not millions, of Christians who read what happened or watched the video that was posted on the Internet.

 

Now Weick wants everyone to know that she did not get arrested and she is safely back in her SUV, heading back to Tennessee.

 

“It was quite an overwhelming day yesterday,” she said.

 

And while she was lauded for her bravery, she confided she was “literally scared to death” as she waited for the right moment to stand up and proclaim the gospel message.

 

“They never said a word to me. Two guys came up and got me. I remember one large man in a suit taking me by the arm, very strongly but he did not hurt me,” she said.

 

“He just put an arm on me and said, ‘We are walking this way.’ Then comes the police officer, and I’m thinking, ‘OK I’m done.’ I’m still in the sanctuary at this point, so I put out my hands for the officer to arrest me, but he just held my hand and walked me to the back of the church.

 

“He handed me over to a woman officer, who takes me to the front doors of the church. She hands me to another officer, who takes me to another officer in the foyer, who takes me out to the road. Not one of them said a word. I was free to go.”

 

She said she told the last officer who led her to the road to have a good day, to which he gave no response. She returned to her vehicle and soon afterward drove home.

 

Except she doesn’t have a home. She said her husband divorced her last year “over a spiritual conflict,” and her family disowned her because she took a stand against same-sex marriage and other “moral issues.”

 

Weick said she learned of the Muslim prayer service two days before it was scheduled to happen through an article posted on the Drudge Report. The more she thought about it, she felt the Lord was telling her to go to Washington and say something.

 

“My blood began to boil as I read the comments of how this is to be such a wonderful event and how religious tolerance can, for the first time, be shown in our nation’s capital,” she said.

Still, she had nervous doubts about making the 400-mile trip from Kingsport, Tennessee.

 

“That article got my attention. And then I Googled the Washington National Cathedral, and I got more information about the service,” she said.

 

She found out from the cathedral’s website that the event was for “invited guests only.”

 

“That’s when I knew I had to be creative, and so did God,” she said.

 

She wasn’t sure what type of creativity would be required or even if she was doing the right thing as she headed out on the road to D.C. In fact, she almost turned around.

 

A sign of confirmation

 

“I was driving there on my way from Tennessee, and I’ve got a lot of doubts in my mind: Am I going to make a fool of myself? Am I going to be in jail for the weekend?”

 

But as she drove down the highway in the right lane, she passed a strange woman.

 

“There’s this woman stepping out of her vehicle on the side of the road, clapping and giving me two thumbs up, and I’m like, ‘That was the strangest thing,’” she said. “The first thing that went through my mind was, ‘That’s my confirmation right there.’ That’s all I needed, and from that point on I knew this was something I’m going to do; and that was the catapult that moved me to keep going towards Washington.”

 

She said she told only four people where she was going and what she planned to do. She asked for prayer.

 

“I said I need you to pray for me, this is what God has put in my bones to do,” she said. “It didn’t hit me until I got in the cathedral and saw all the people and the cameras sitting on my right, and I’m thinking, ‘This is a big deal. I am going to be put in jail!’”

 

She credits God for getting her into the massive church, which was guarded like Fort Knox. Everyone had to go through a checkpoint to make sure they weren’t armed or posed a threat.

 

“It was a God thing how I got past all that security in the beginning. They never ID’d me, and I had brought my ID with me just in case, and I thought that would be my downfall, being from Michigan, that they would say, ‘What is she doing here?” Weick said. “According to reports, this was a heavy security event. They checked every bag and every person that walked in there. I bet some security people are in big trouble today.”

 

She said she slipped through unnoticed, first by following a security guard and then later by engaging in conversation alongside a woman with press credentials.

 

“I just followed those security officers when they were going from place to place. I just followed them,” she said. “It was almost like they didn’t see me. Like I was invisible.”

 

Hiding in the bathroom

 

Weick got through the security line about 10:15 a.m., more than an hour and a half before the prayer service started. She needed to lie low to avoid detection.

 

She noticed a janitor’s closet was left open near the bathroom and briefly thought about hiding in it. But a fear of being locked in persuaded her against that option.

 

She slipped into the bathroom instead.

 

“When I was in the bathroom hiding out, that’s when it hit me: I think I’m invisible, I really wondered, the way it happened, just strange, just totally strange; and someday I’m going to ask God how that all worked out,” she said.

 

While hiding in the bathroom and waiting for the service to start, she rehearsed over and over what she would say. She prayed constantly, with emphasis on Psalm 27.

 

A woman was washing her hands at the sink as Weick left the stall where she was hiding. The woman had a press tag on her blouse.

 

“I asked her if she knew what time the service was to start and she replied, ‘In a few minutes. Do you know where to go?’ I didn’t.”

 

“Follow me and I will take you to the front,” the woman said.

 

“I walked with her into the main foyer up to the security line. We walked right past the guards and into the sanctuary! I was invisible.”

 

Still, the butterflies fluttered in her stomach.

 

“As she took her seat she was shocked at what she saw. About a hundred people were sitting in chairs around rugs that were placed on the floor. Muslim women, separated from the men, were seated on the rugs. To her right was the news media with their cameras and recording equipment. In front of her were the prayer rugs.

 

“Then it hit me… I had such an angst come over me. Seeing these Muslims sitting on their rugs ready to bow to a god, causing such an abomination in the house of the Lord,” she said.

 

The imam said the call to prayer would begin momentarily and spoke some words in Arabic.

 

Weick felt her heart thumping in her chest.

 

“I prayed… ‘Lord! Tell me when!’ At that moment I saw a figure of Christ on the cross some distance away. I stood up.

 

“I was so nervous; you’ll never know how scared I was,” she said. “All I kept thinking was, ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me; that’s my only strength.’ I could not do it through me. But we have an amazing God. He shows his strength in my weakness. That’s my motto.”

 

She started to speak, firmly and loudly but not out of control. What she said was not the same as what she had rehearsed in the bathroom stall.

 

“I did not plan on those exact words coming out. I was going to say it differently. I was planning to say, ‘I serve a risen Savior, and Muhammad is dead.’ But I saw the cross and it just popped out of my mouth. I was not going to say it that way. I rehearsed it the other way over and over in the bathroom, because my biggest fear was making a fool of myself; but it didn’t happen that way.”

 

Even if she had failed and made herself a fool, it could not be more painful than what she has already gone through over the past year, she said.

 

“I took a very strong stand on something last year. My husband divorced me over it. It broke my heart. I have a lot of heartache back home, a lot of hurt,” she said. “And I felt the Lord telling me, ‘You are going to go from place to place for me.’”

 

While she lives out of her car, she doesn’t consider herself homeless.

 

“Don’t be sorry for me. I have a very nice SUV. I go out to eat, I have a bank account,” she told WND. “I am just too Dutch to pay 60 or 70 bucks for a hotel every night when I can spend my nights in my car. And I travel every night from place to place, and that is what I was doing when I saw the story in the Drudge Report.”

 

Not a hero

 

WND’s first story on the prayer service drew hundreds of comments from readers. Many lauded the lone, unidentified woman who stood up and rebuked what they saw as a worship service to a false god inside a prominent American church.

 

Among the comments:

 

·         “They shielded their eyes from the Christian cross, but could not shield their ears from the truthful words of this one brave woman.”

 

·         “We should all pray to have the courage this woman displayed. The world needs it. Our nation desperately needs it. Jesus Christ IS Lord.”

 

·         “I would speculate that the brave woman who proclaimed the Gospel was the only Christian present– and they threw her out,” commented a reader who quoted from John 16:2: “They will put you out of the synagogues. Indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God.”

 

·         “Bless this woman! Jesus Christ is the Messiah and Salvation for all that believe. Acts 4:12 automatically comes to mind. Islam and Christianity are opposed to each other, no matter what any Pope, Priest and Cardinal says. You cannot deny the Son and have the Father and Islam denies Jesus is the Son.”

 

But Weick said she did nothing outside of what God gave her the strength to do, and she doesn’t see herself as any hero of the faith. The weakest of Christians could easily do the same thing, she said.

 

“That’s why I posted on Facebook this morning. I was like, ‘Come on Christian soldiers we need to fight, and we need to fight using the gospel, the Word of God,’” she said. “There are Muslims everywhere, just walk up to them and say, ‘Jesus Christ is Lord.’ Be brave.

 

“I’m hearing that many Muslims are getting dreams. Maybe all it takes is one to have a dream after being told Jesus Christ is Lord, I don’t know. That is God’s deal. Let Him work it out. We just need to be bold in the Lord and we don’t need to be burning their mosques down, like they burn our churches. We have the gospel and that is our only weapon we need. Jesus is Lord, and we need to proclaim it, but how many times do we do it?”

 

But before Weick became bold, she was humbled.

 

“It was a situation in my life, how God yanked every anchor in my life over the last five years, just everything that would keep a normal woman, a normal mother, at home just got yanked out from under me,” she said. “I have a son and a daughter, and they disowned me. I took a stand against gay marriage and I lost them. That is my heartache. And it hurts me so much. And I wonder what they think now when they see me on the news.”

 

Weick said she doesn’t know what her next “assignment” will be, but she knows now she can tackle almost anything.

 

“I told the Lord last night, ‘OK, you can take me now,’ but I don’t know,” she said. “I think He may have other plans for me, per Jeremiah 29: 11.”

Muslims Defile National Cathedral


The Sheikh-ul-Islam proclaiming jihad 11-14-1914

ECUSA is OK with That

 

John R. Houk

© November 15, 2014

 

On November 14, 2014 the National Cathedral (Episcopal Church USA) in Washington DC permitted a Friday prayers Muslim service under the sponsorship of Muslim American organizations that are directly to Muslim Brotherhood jihadist organizations. These Muslim American organizations were listed as unindicted co-conspirators of convicted Holy Land Foundation members that funded Islamic terrorism by sending money to Hamas. The Islamic terrorist organization Hamas is dedicated to killing Jews and destroying Israel until there are NO Jews left in the Holy Land.

 

And to make the Muslim prayer service even more heinous at the National Cathedral that date is the 100th anniversary of the last Muslim recognized Caliph at the demise of the Ottoman Empire toward the end of WWI had proclaimed a jihad against any infidel supporting the British, French and Russians during WWI. This would eventually lead to the Armenian Genocide in which that significant Christian minority in Turkey were ethnically cleansed via population marches that included murder, crucifixions, rape and whatever brutal Islamic justification aimed at ridding Ottoman/Turkey of Christians now viewed as enemies of Islam.

 

Here is a clip saved from the 1919 silent movie documentary depicting the Armenian genocide as related by survivor Arshaluys (Aurora) Mardiganian. The video is a little over 20 minutes but well worth seeing to comprehend the ramifications of jihad against Christians. It is best viewed in full screen:

To this very day the Turkish government denies a systematic ethnic cleansing of Armenian Christians between 1915 and 1919. This denial exists even with the photographic, film and eyewitness survivors implicating the outgoing Ottoman government and incoming Turkish government.

 

AGAIN Friday November 14, 2014 is the 100th anniversary of the Caliphate proclamation initiating this genocide. AND YET the Episcopal Church USA administered National Cathedral permitted a Muslim service sponsored by Masjid Muhammad of The Nation’s Mosque (represented by member and South Africa Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool), and representatives from the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS), Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). All those organizations are directly linked to the American-hating Muslim Brotherhood (See Also HERE) and linked to the Islamic Terrorist organization Hamas. Does anyone actually believe the date was a coincidence with the 100th year anniversary of a Turkish Caliph calling for a jihad against Christians? As Muslim Brotherhood associates, all these organizations believe in the global establishment of a new Caliphate to again concoct the spread of the cancerous spread of Islam via jihad.

 

Here is some added info from Rep. Louie Gohmert from the House Floor:

 

VIDEO:  100 YEARS AGO: Last Caliph Publicly Calls for War Against Infidels

 

THANK GOD there was one Christian who crashed the Muslim defilement of the National Cathedral. This gal stood up and let Ebrahim Rasool and his cohorts that support global jihad and let these infiltrators know that Jesus in the only way to God:

 

‘”Jesus Christ died on that cross over there!” a woman said loudly, immediately after beginning announcements were made. He is the reason why we are to worship only him. Jesus Christ is our lord and savior!”

 

As she spoke, a man attempted to touch her arm, but she moved away from him several times.

 

She continued in a loud voice, “We have built, and allowed you here in mosques across this country.

 

Why can’t you worship in your mosque, and leave our churches alone?”’ (Protester Disrupts National Cathedral’s First Muslim Prayer; taken from 4NBC Washington; Virtue Online; 11/14/14)

 

Most of MSM news outlets have to the date of this posting has identified the bold Christian defending her faith as anonymous. However, I have discovered from a friend of hers identifying himself at the Christian activist Tommie Scott shares her story (interweaving a bit of his own) and identifies her by first name Kristine. I suspect her entire name will eventually come out.

A Muslim prayer service being held at the Washington National Cathedral for the first time was briefly disrupted by a protester Friday afternoon.

“Jesus Christ died on that cross over there!” a woman said loudly, immediately after beginning announcements were made. He is the reason why we are to worship only him. Jesus Christ is our lord and savior!”

As she spoke, a man attempted to touch her arm, but she moved away from him several times.

She continued in a loud voice, “We have built, and allowed you here in mosques across this country. Why can’t you worship in your mosque, and leave our churches alone?” The protester was then escorted out of the cathedral, News4’s Kristin Wright reported. She allowed two men to remove her without incident, but she raised her voice once she was taken to an adjoining space.

Robert Spencer posted about Kristine defending her faith. His post is important because he heads off the diversity Multiculturalists and the deceiving Muslim Apologists by showing what the Quran actually says about Christians and Christianity. Spencer’s direct quotes of Quranic Suras (we Christians might call them Scriptures) demonstrates how much Islam (Moderate or Radical) is definitely an Antichrist religion specifically calling the Christian faith a deceiving lie when we Believers know OR SHOULD KNOW that Islam is the deceptive warped copy of Old and New Testament Scriptures.

Woman proclaiming Christ ejected from Muslim prayers at National Cathedral

It all sounds so high-minded: the Rev. Canon Gina Campbell says: “This needs to be a world in which all are free to believe and practice and in which we avoid bigotry, Islamaphobia, racism, anti-Semitism, and anti-Christianity and to embrace our humanity and to embrace faith.”

 

But someone threw a rotting cabbage on their lovely sofa, as DCist laments: “And because love, respect and understanding is too much of a concept for some people to understand, a person interrupted the service. Of course.” Still, the spectacle of a woman being forcibly ejected from what is ostensibly a Christian cathedral for proclaiming that Jesus Christ is Lord just before Muslim prayers are about to begin is at very least evidence that we live in strange times.

 

I noted here the Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood links of the sponsoring groups. Besides that, there is the fact that there is an enduring obstacle to achieving a world in which we are all free to believe and practice and embrace our humanity and faith: Muslims who take to heart and act upon Qur’an verses like these:

 

Christians have forgotten part of the divine revelations they received: “From those, too, who call themselves Christians, We did take a covenant, but they forgot a good part of the message that was sent them: so we estranged them, with enmity and hatred between the one and the other, to the day of judgment. And soon will Allah show them what it is they have done.” — Qur’an 5:14

 

Jesus is not the Son of God: “O People of the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers, and say not “Three” – Cease! (it is) better for you! – Allah is only One Allah. Far is it removed from His Transcendent Majesty that He should have a son. His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is sufficient as Defender.” — Qur’an 4:171

 

“It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is.” — Qur’an 19:35

 

Those who believe that Jesus is God’s Son are accursed: “The Jews call ‘Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah’s curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth! ” — Qur’an 9:30

 

Jesus was not crucified: “And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger – they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain.” — Qur’an 4:157

 

Christians, as People of the Book, must be warred against and subjugated: “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” — Qur’an 9:29

 

In light of all that, and the ongoing and escalating Muslim persecution of Christians worldwide, wouldn’t it have been more appropriate, so as to promote love, respect and understanding and all that, to have Christian prayers in a mosque? After all, it is Muslims who are persecuting Christians worldwide, and the National Cathedral decides to show its good will and love for Muslims by inviting Hamas-linked Muslim Brotherhood front groups to pray there. Why doesn’t the ADAMS Center show its good will and love for Christians by inviting Christians to pray in the mosque there?

 

This woman who disrupted the service was upset that a building dedicated to the worship of Christ had been given over for the use of people who believe that her proclamation of Christ is a blasphemous falsehood and that her beliefs are a perversion of the true teachings of Jesus the Muslim prophet. Before waxing indignant and self-righteous over her “bigotry” and “intolerance,” Muslims who would have no problem with a mosque that did indeed invite Christians in to offer prayers to the Son of God, and who would applaud the forcible ejection from that mosque of a Muslim who stood up and said, No, this is wrong, there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet, should demonstrate their own love, respect and understanding by actually extending a real invitation to Christians to come in.

 

“Of Course Someone Interrupted Muslim Prayers At The National Cathedral,” DCist, November 14, 2014 (thanks to Jerk Chicken):

 

In a (sic) “a dramatic moment in the world and in Muslim-Christian relations,” the National Cathedral is currently hosting Jumu’ah, the Friday prayer said by Muslims. And because love, respect and understanding is too much of a concept for some people to understand, a person interrupted the service. Of course.

 

According to reports, a woman yelled “Jesus Christ is Lord!” before being removed from the Cathedral. A group of motorcyclists planned to protest “the Islamization of America” outside the D.C. house of worship.

 

Organized by South African Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool, the All Dulles Area Muslim Society, Council on American-Islamic Relations, Islamic Society of North America, Muslim Public Affairs Council and The Nation’s Mosque, certain people are pretty worked up about the service, with the Reverend Franklin Graham calling it “sad to see. ”In a release about the event, Rasool, who helped organize the event with Cathedral liturgical director, the Rev. Canon Gina Campbell, said, “This needs to be a world in which all are free to believe and practice and in which we avoid bigotry, Islamaphobia, racism, anti-Semitism, and anti-Christianity and to embrace our humanity and to embrace faith.”

 

The service can be watched here.

Why Jihad Watch?

 

Why Jihad Watch? Because non-Muslims in the West, as well as in India, China, Russia, and the world over, are facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy their societies and impose Islamic law upon them — and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad.

 

Jihad (Arabic for “struggle”) is a central duty of every Muslim. Muslim theologians have spoken of many things as jihads: the struggle within the soul, defending the faith from critics, supporting its growth and defense financially, even migrating to non-Muslim lands for the purpose of spreading Islam. But violent jihad is a constant of Islamic history and a central element of Islamic theology. Many passages of the Qur’an and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad are used by jihad warriors today to justify their actions and gain new recruits. No major Muslim group has ever repudiated the doctrines of armed jihad. The theology of jihad, which denies unbelievers equality of human rights and dignity, is available today for anyone with the will and means to bring it to life.

 

In Islamic history and doctrine violent jihad is founded on numerous verses of the Qur’an — most notably, one known in Islamic theology as the “Verse of the Sword”: “Then, when the READ THE REST
