Church Minister now shares his church in Aberdeen with Muslim congregation five times a day

By Northernscot-At Aberdeen’s Crown Terrace St John Episcopal Church, The Reverend Poobalan whom says that he was surrounded by Islam when he was growing up in India has opened his church to be used up to five times a day by the local Muslim population.

The church share is the first in Scotland where hundreds of Muslims use the main chapel at busy times. Quieter time’s sections of the main hall are given over.

Rev Poobalan reckons that the local mosque is so full at times, there would be people outside in the wind rain praying. He said also “When I spoke to the people at the church about the situation, some actually said to me this was not our problem, but I had to see it with my own eyes, so it was a problem.”

Imam Ahmed Megharbi is reported to have said by STV “What happens here is special and there should be no problem repeating this across the country. The relationship is friendly and respectful.”

Sure Muslims would like this to be repeated across the country, instant places to use as a mosque.

Some may see this as another move in the suggested Islamic slow takeover of our country.
We hope that the congregation at St John’s Episcopal church will protest loudly to their minister, maybe he needs to be moved somewhere else?

Such churches were built by Christians for Christians. To allow hundreds of Muslims to take over the main chapel at times is wrong.

If the church continues to allow such an arrangement then they may find their shrinking congregation shrinks further.

We suggest Christians throughout Scotland contact the Bishop of Aberdeen and Orkney to complain.
