Update: 16:00: Duke University has reversed their decision, citing the furor their original decision had caused. What were these people thinking?
“Duke remains committed to fostering an inclusive, tolerant and welcoming campus for all of its students,” Michael Schoenfeld, Duke’s vice president for public affairs and government relations, said in a statement. “However, it was clear that what was conceived as an effort to unify was not having the intended effect.”
In a country where atheists and Christian haters have demanded Christians not utter one word about God because of an extreme interpretation of the separation of Church and State, and in a country where Jewish students are being abused on our college campuses, the Muslim Call to Prayer, or the adhan, will be heard every Friday at 1:00pm on the campus of Duke University.
It will be chanted and amplified from the Chapel bell tower on campus by the Duke Muslim Student Association (MSA), which is Muslim Brotherhood front group.
Five years earlier an MSA chapter at George Washington University had a chaplain named Anwar al-Awlaki. Al-Awlaki was a terrorist famous in part for the emails he exchanged with the Ft. Hood terrorist and more recently the terrorist from Ohio and the Kouachi brothers in Paris.
The Lord’s Prayer will NOT be heard at Duke. Only Muslims will get this accommodation – it’s pluralism and it’s certainly not Americanism.
Duke was founded as a Christian school but they won’t allow Christian prayer. They tried to ban a pro-life event on campus last year and they removed Chik-Fil-A from campus during the controversy. They also hosted a national Palestinian Solidarity Movement conference.
The new initiative is to promote pluralism. We now have PC, multiculturalism and pluralism to destroy our unity as a nation.
The Muslim religion should not be given accommodations other religions do not receive. This act of pluralism is divisive – very.
As a woman, I find the Muslim Call to Prayer frightening and would immediately leave campus under these conditions. To Obama, “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer.” Not to many of the rest of us as their radical element slaughter people here and abroad.
Where is Mikey Weinstein who attacks Christianity in the military? Where is the Freedom from Religion Foundation that attacks anything Christian that can be seen or heard?
Rev. Graham calls on Americans to end the Muslim Call to Prayer at Duke.
“Duke University announced today that they will have a Muslim call to prayer from their Chapel bell tower every Friday,” said Rev. Graham on his Facebook page on Jan. 14.
“As Christianity is being excluded from the public square and followers of Islam are raping, butchering, and beheading Christians, Jews, and anyone who doesn’t submit to their Sharia Islamic law, Duke is promoting this in the name of religious pluralism,” he said.
“I call on the donors and alumni to withhold their support from Duke until this policy is reversed,” added Rev. Graham, who lives in Boone, N.C., and is the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA).
