 Old Church Becomes Mosque in Uneasy Britain


[b]Old Church Becomes Mosque in Uneasy Britain[/b]

CLITHEROE, England — On a chilly night this winter, this pristine town in some of Britain’s most untouched countryside voted to allow a former Christian church to become a mosque.

The narrow vote by the municipal authorities marked the end of a bitter struggle by the tiny Muslim population to establish a place of worship, one that will put a mosque in an imposing stone Methodist church that had been used as a factory since its congregation dwindled away 40 years ago.

The battle underscored Britain’s unease with its Muslim minority, and particularly the infiltration of terrorist cells among the faithful, whose devotion has challenged an increasingly secular Britain’s sense of itself. ...

The largest mosque in the western hemisphere is in Deerborne, Michigan.

The battle is on. It's spiritual at this point within our borders, but before long the muslims will make it physical.

I don't understand why this is "news". Sadly, it's been happening for years. Many churches are now centres for other religions. One, a few miles from here, is a Sikh Cultural Centre. When visiting friends in Cardiff, I pass an ex-church that's now a mosque, and that's far from the only one. It isn't at all unusual.
[edit] Just realised that the news is actually that it was permitted in spite of fears of Islamic terrorism./[edit]

But the true Church goes on!
