WTF? Presbyterian Church (USA) offered prayers to the Islamic god, Allah



Let's be clear the God of Christians and Jews is not the same god the Muslims worship,  however they did not stop The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) from offering prayers, Allah. The prayer was led by a representative of the Muslim community on behalf of the Presbyterian Assembly. The representative, Wallid Said, prayed…

“Allah bless us and bless our families and bless our Lord. Lead us on the straight path – the path of all the prophets: Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad.”

The Islamic prayer was the the first order of business for the assembly. The prayer was arranged by the Ecumenical and Interfaith ministry staff for the PCUSA. They apparently got what the asked for. The full transcript is as follows:


“Allah bless us and bless our families and bless our Lord. Lead us on the straight path – the path of all the prophets: Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad. Peace be upon them all Amen. “In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful, let us praise the Lord. The creator of the universe, the most merciful, the most compassionate and the Lord of the universe who has created us and made us into nations and tribes, from male and females that we may know each other, not that we might despise each other, or may despise each other. Incline towards peace and justice and trust in God, for the Lord is one that hears and knows everything and the servants of God, the most compassionate, the most merciful, gracious are those who walk in the earth in humility and when bigots and hateful and Islamaphobes address them, they say peace. Peace be upon them and peace be upon Allah.”

  2. Let's be clear. If you believe your Bible stories, it was the same God that spoke to Ibrahim/Abraham and told him he would be the father of a great nation.

    Ibrahim/Abraham's wife Sarah was very old and had never conceived a child.
    Abraham was married but he had a mistress and she was not a Jew.
    He fathered a child by this concubine, Hagar and after Sarah gave birth to Isaac, abandoned them both in Mecca.
    Nice behaviour from the father of Judaism, Islam and Christianity!
