The Christian thing to do?

September 26th, 2009

A follow-up to “Let us pray” on 9/25/09. As reported by “At Capitol, a Day of Muslim Prayer and Unity” (9/26/09 Washington Post) about the Muslim day of prayer on Capitol Hill on Sep. 25. “Christian” protesters disrupted the Muslim prayer meeting with megaphones, banners, and giant crosses (I guess we should be thankful that they didn’t set the latter on fire).


You, so-called “Christian” conservative:

You come to the city where I live

Filled with hate,

To demonstrate,

People kneeled in prayer to berate.


Rev. Flip from Concord North Carolina used a megaphone to shout

“Convert to Christ,” the Muslim prayers drowning out.

Islam “forces its dogma down your throat,” added the pastor from NC.

Apparently oblivious to his statement’s irony.


Another protester relayed

How she and her family were afraid

That the Muslims might molest them.

But the real threats were those who came to protest them.


The Christian protesters were so loud

That the praying Muslims were successfully cowed.

A prayer leader begged protesters to “show some respect.”

But the interruptions went on unchecked.


“We would never come to a prayer meeting that you have to make a disturbance,” the Muslim pleaded.

But the noise level never receded.

“Just as your Sunday is sacred, our Friday is sacred,” he said.

But the noise just got louder instead.


I myself am a Christian too

But I would never act like you.

All you accomplish by spewing hatred in Jesus’ name

Is the Lord and Savior to defame.


You “Christians” who demonstrated:

People of other faiths don’t need to be feared or hated.

As one organizer said, “We are Muslims who truly love this country.”

That doesn’t sound like someone to be feared to me.


They’re a different faith, it true.

But they have religious freedom too.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

After all, that’s the Christian thing to do.
