Christian Missionaries Outside a Mosque in the UK

Most people in Britain would consider it to be offensive and rude to preach outside somebody else’s place of worship. If they stood outside of the mosque to simply hand out those leaflets as “Christian” missionaries and make slogans about Jesus as Muslims were leaving their prayers this seems offensive. They have now opened the invitation for Muslims or anybody else to do the same in return outside their church on a Sunday.

The young male missionary is somebody who argues with Muslims at Hyde Park. The female Christian missionary is from DCCI Ministries. 

Important update. Please do not picket or preach outside Tooting Church. We’ve spoken to a pastor – pastor Joe, they are usually called Joe! 🙂 [Joke] – there and the missionaries outside the mosque in that inflammatory video were NOT sanctioned by the church. Again, please, if there are any youngsters thinking of preaching outside their church please let them know it would be unfair and the “invitation” in the video is not sanctioned by that church, their staff or their congregants. Thanks. They try to provoke Muslims but Muslims be fair, kind and loving in return. #fairness

  2. Christians like Lizzie and her friend have no concern or respect for the religion of other people, let alone the sanctity of other non-Christian houses of worship. Disturbing the peaceful atmosphere at a House of God, by accosting worshippers outside is a despicable, inconsiderate, and dishonorable act, which Muslims have not engaged in towards Christians.

    The distasteful behavior of these two Missionary hate preachers is reprehensible, offensive, discourteous, and outrageous.

    But more than that – it is a shameful embarrassment to Christianity.

    I don’t think it is enough for “Pastor Joe” to simply and quietly deny that these two Missionaries are sanctioned by the Church. The Pastor and Tooting Church, along with all other Christians should publicly speak out LOUDLY and FIRMLY against this type of offensive behavior aimed at Muslim and/or Non-Christian communities. If Christians do not object and speak out against this type of repellent behavior from the start, then it will be allowed to continue and fester, until things spin out of control.

    All decent and educated Christians should be ashamed of such sinful tactics which are used so often by their own co-religionist Christian Missionaries today. All good and honest Christians and Christian leaders should find the courage to call these disingenuous apologists out on such tactics in defense of common decency. Otherwise such sinful acts will bring shame on the name of those good Christians whose silence so often seems to agree with such shameful deeds.

      Ibn Issam, I agree with you. There is a time and place for everything. Unfortunately, Muslims have done far worse in the past. Muslims have stolen Christian places of worship.

      If this is “a shameful embarrassment to Christianity”, what do you make of the conduct of Sultan Mehmet II who stole the Hagia Sophia from the Greek Christians of Constantinople? If preaching outside another house of worship is bad, what do you make of Sultan Mehmet II. He must be the devil incarnate in your eyes? Am I correct?

      You are comparing apples and oranges.

      Sultan Mehmet Fatih, claimed the Hajja Sofia as part of a “Counter-Crusade” in response to initial Christian aggression as well as in response to Byzantine political betrayals, treachery, and the Crusade of Varna which was aimed at destroying the Ottomans. Stop reading your white washed western history books and try to understand what really happened.

    • I love the world you live in Ibn Issam,

      “initial Christian aggression” I hate to break it to you but the Byzantine Empire pre-existed your religion, let alone the Ottoman Empire which came centuries later.

      It’s obvious that your knowledge of history is comparable to your knowledge of the Bible. Remember how you said St. Paul called works filthy rags and I had to point out that the filthy rags quote if from Isaiah. You’ve just shown that your knowledge of history is comparable to that.

      Keep those missionaries away from the mosque but we’ll steal your cathedrals. I’m pretty sure that Islam is against theft so you would be a good Muslim to condemn Mehmet II for this. Be a good Muslim and condemn this monster since you condemn Christians for so much less.

      You disgrace your own faith by having such low standards for your co-religionists.

      The re-appropriation of places of worship was common to Christendom too.

      For example, the Seville Cathedral and the Mosque–Cathedral of Córdoba during the Reconquista.

    • I don’t know much about the Seville Cathedral so I won’t comment on that. As for the Cordoba Cathedral, that was originally a Church, it was stolen by the Muslims, then the Christians took it back.

      The Muslims invaded Spain and ruled this Christian country for hundreds of years.

      The Hagia Sophia was built in a Greek City, with Greek money. It was stolen by foreign invaders.

      Let me admit it here. Fernando and Isabella were wrong to expel the Muslims and Jews. Unlike Ibn Issam, I have no problem admitting when my fellow co-religionists do something immoral.

      However, the Muslims had no right invading the country in 712.

      We could debate this all we want. I’m not bringing this up to go tit for tat with Islam. I’m doing this to expose Ibn Issam.

      According to Ibn Issam, a Christian can’t hand out tracts by mosque but Sultan Mehmet can steal Churches from the Greeks. I’m at least happy he holds my a faith to a much higher standards than his own. If I were a Muslim, I’d have a bone to pick with him though.

    • Allan,
      Your anachronistic view of history is skewed by your own biased faith beliefs, and limited to what your white washed western history books teach.

      Here is the history:

      The Byzantine Empire had been at an almost continuous state of war with the Persian Empire with whom the Seljuk’s were allied with. The Seljuk’s were simply engaged in an ongoing war with the Byzantines that had been in effect for a very long time. By the 1440’s the Byzantine Empire had been reduced to a shadow of its former self. It had been beleaguered by constant raids from Seljuks, and other tribal marauders, along with wars and the costs of administrating a crumbling Empire. By the time of the Ottomans, Byzantium was virtually defenseless and had been reduced to a small Ottoman vassal state. The Byzantines could have had peace and kept their remaining holdings (including the Hajja Sofia) if only they would have upheld their oaths as loyal vassals. But, the Christians did not keep their promises (no surprise) and Byzantium was not a loyal vassal, as they traitorously orchestrated an attempted political coup by supporting a pretender to the Ottoman throne, which sparked infighting among the Ottomans. However, the reigning Sultan Murad II survived the coup, and held the Sultanate together. Also, in another bid to regain their former glory, the Byzantines gathered a coalition of Christian states and launched a venomous crusade against the Ottomans. The Crusade almost destroyed the Ottomans but it was ultimately crushed at the battle of Varna in 1444 by Sultan Murad II. So it can be seen that the Byzantines had entered into a political contract and relationship with the Ottomans, but had treacherously betrayed that pact. The Byzantine betrayal and constant plotting threatened the Ottoman’s western boundaries, which later required a defensive response from Sultan Mehmet Fetih (son of Sultan Murad II). The subsequent “Counter-Crusade” into Europe was then clearly in recompense to the initial Christian crusade of Varna against the Ottomans, who needed to secure their Northwestern boundary and guard it from further Christian assault. This ultimately resulted in the conquest of Constantinople 1453. Therefore, as you can see the Turkish actions were not simply motivated “Purely by religion” as you and some others would like people to think, but also by the same concerns that any modern country takes into account, rational political concerns, internal and external threats, and national self-defense.

      Why should we condemn Sultan Mehmet Fatih for something that occurred almost 600 years ago? He is a national hero, and defender of Islam. If he was Christian and made the same achievements in reverse the Church leaders would have named a holiday after him and we never would have heard the end of it.
      Speaking of low standards for co-religionists, in our previous conversation, you failed to answer MY questions:

      If you want to make the comparison between modernity and the past, then I am free to do the same. Do you condemn the violent and unjust history of Christianity? Do you condemn the Byzantine conquest and oppressive overbearing rule of Syro-Arab lands and North Africa? Do you condemn the violent unjust, and barbaric Christian Crusades – ALL NINE – of them? Do you condemn the occupation and brutal rule of Muslim lands for over 200 plus years by Barbaric Christian Crusaders? Do you condemn Trinitarian Christian Crusades against Unitarian Christians? Do you condemn the Crusade of Varna? Do you condemn Christian backed colonialist Imperialism of the past. Do you condemn the spread of Christianity by the Imperialist gun and sword, in Africa, Asia, and Western Hemisphere? Do you condemn the rape and slavery of Non-Christian peoples who were victims of that imperialism? Do you condemn the recent modern western (Christian majority) incursions into Muslim lands and countries? Do you condemn the theft of Palestine? Do you condemn Christians for the theft and/or destruction of Muslim mosques and holy sites?

      Pardon our past, current, and future, rape, pillage, and plundering seems to be YOUR “good” Christian attitude.

      All of your accusations are red herrings but let me respond:

      Do you condemn the Byzantine conquest and oppressive overbearing rule of Syro-Arab lands and North Africa?

      The Byzantine Empire ruled it far better than the Muslim Arabs in my opinion.

      Do you condemn the violent unjust, and barbaric Christian Crusades – ALL NINE – of them?

      Depends which ones. We’d have to go through them and discuss each one. Keep in mind the territory of the crusades was once Christian land.

      ” Do you condemn the occupation and brutal rule of Muslim lands for over 200 plus years by Barbaric Christian Crusaders? ”

      It’s ironic that if you read the history of the Muslim Ibn Jubayr, he talks about how Muslims had better lives in the Crusader states that areas under Islamic rule!

      “Do you condemn Trinitarian Christian Crusades against Unitarian Christians?”

      You’ll have to elaborate. Which Unitarian Christians?

      “Do you condemn the Crusade of Varna?”

      No because that was an attempt to save Constantinople. It was to halt the Ottomans from Invading Christian lands.

      “Do you condemn Christian backed colonialist Imperialism of the past. Do you condemn the spread of Christianity by the Imperialist gun and sword, in Africa, Asia, and Western Hemisphere?”

      I’ll need specific examples. In Colonialism, there was a difference between colonial powers and the Church. The Catholic Church usually opposed the brutal treatment of the natives such as Fr. Bartholomew de las casas. He convened the debate in Salamanca to help give natives rights. That’s why most conquistadores hated the Church.

      “Do you condemn the rape and slavery of Non-Christian peoples who were victims of that imperialism?”

      Yes. The Church usually opposed it but sometimes shamefully engaged in it. I condemn that.

      “Do you condemn the recent modern western (Christian majority) incursions into Muslim lands and countries?”

      Yes, all of those wars are based on Zionist and Neocon lies.

      “Do you condemn the theft of Palestine?”

      Yes.

      “Do you condemn Christians for the theft and/or destruction of Muslim mosques and holy sites? ”

      I’ll need examples but if they did yes.

    • Allan,
      It seems that you are the one in need of history lessons. The Persian empire existed from the 6th century B.C.E Achaemenid era, up until the 20th century C.E. in the Qajar era. The Arabs interrupted the Sasanian dynasty in the mid 7th Century. The Seljuk turks were a Persianate society, taking on Persian language, and traditions, they were allied with Persians against the Byzantines, at times they independently continued the wars against the Byzantines. At other times they also fought against the Persians as well at times. They Byzantine Seljuk wars dated from 1048 to 1308. The Ottomans were the successors to the Seljuks and continued in their stead.

      I NEVER said that it is ok for Muslims to take Christian Churches (especially not in this day and age) you have misportrayed my position with your loaded remark which has historical implications that are not equivalent. Regardless of what you might say, you ARE engaging in tit for tat with Islam, and trying to deflect.

      Given that Mehmet Fatih was able to stand up to the worst treachery, betrayal, and violence that Christianity had to offer in his day and age, I will consider him a hero. Sorry, but Allan Ruhl does not get to reinterpret our own history and arbitrarily decide who is an who is not a hero for Muslim peoples.

      Your responses to my questions betray your own biases, it must be comfy in your white washed world.

      “The Byzantine Empire ruled it far better than the Muslim Arabs in my OPINION.” – The facts tell a different story.

      “Depends which ones. We’d have to go through them and discuss each one. Keep in mind the territory of the crusades was once Christian land.” – However it was never European land, and EVERY Crusade was an unjust and brutal criminal spree spurred on by a violent Christian religion hell bent on destroying all who opposed it.

      In regard to Ibn Jubayr– For a more detailed depiction of life under the crusaders read the book “The Crusades Through Arab Eyes” by Amin Maalouf which documents how Barbaric Christian Crusaders were unaware of the most elementary rules of honor, dignity and social ethics. Your pleasant view of Christian occupation of Muslim lands is untrue, and if it was, then why didn’t Muslims defend their Christian overlords when Saladin and the Muslim armies arrived? Instead the people flocked to the banner of Islam, in order to free themselves of unjust and oppressive Christian rule.

      “You’ll have to elaborate. Which Unitarian Christians?” – Start with the Albegensian crusade against the Cathars, in which the Roman Church massacred 20’000 fellow Christians.

      Your characterization of the Crusade of Varna is actually a backward reading of history. To be expected from you, since you always prefer to play the victim card and lay all the blame on Islam.

      Your view of Colonial past is white washed. Christians used to hang natives in the Americas in groups of 12 in honor of the 12 apostles. Even the Pope himself has recognized the crimes committed against the native peoples during the so-called conquest of America. The Catholic Church was one of many Christian denominations that ran boarding schools in Canada and the U.S. designed to “kill the Indian in the child” by taking kids from their families, cutting them off from their culture and educating them in the ways of the European-minded settlers. The Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission on June 2 came out with a report calling such practices “cultural genocide.”

      I highly doubt that the church “usually opposed” slavery and imperialism. Most often they engaged in it or turned a blind eye.

      Good – we agree on theft of Palestine
      .
      Umar Ahmad provided a few examples of Christian theft of mosques. How many Mosques did Christians steal, convert, or destroy during the crusades? During other Christian led wars in Europe (Balkans, Eastern Europe/Russia, etc.)? During Colonial period? How many mosques have been destroyed as a result of recent western interventionism in the middle east?

      You cry like a little baby about one Church while Muslims have lost so many Mosques (not to mention entire countries) to Christianity that we have stopped counting.

      Vers. 29-128 refer to the events connected with the expedition to Tabuq, which occurred in Rajab of A.H. 9. They were not, however, all enunciated at one time, but partly before the expedition, partly on the march, and partly after the return. Vers. 29-35 may be referred to the time of arrival at Tabuq, when the Christian prince, John of Aylah, tendered his submission to Muhammad, paying tribute (Jazya). [1]

      And to put Tabuq into context
      In one of our authentic early Islamic sources, ‘Sahih Muslim’, it says:

      He (Hadrat ‘Umar further) said: I had a companion from the Ansar and, we used to remain in the company of the Messenger turn by turn. He remained there for a day while I remained there on the other day, and he brought me the news about the revelation and other (matter), and I brought him (the news) like this. And we discussed that the Ghassanids were shoeing the horses IN ORDER TO ATTACK US. Id y companion once attended (the Apostle). And then came to me at night and knocked at my door and called me, and I came out to him, and he said: A matter of great importance has happened. I said: What is that? Have the Ghassanids come? He said: No, but even more serious and more significant than that: the Prophet has divorced his wives. [2]

      Don’t you love how quickly muslims want to talk about context when their texts are under discussion but so readily dismiss context when discussing biblical passages.

      Bilal’s misuse of Mark 10 comes to mind…

    • Guys, don’t you just love it when a Christian clown realizes he is way out of his league and cannot refute anything?

    • Okay let us apply Samaritan’s logic to this verse,

      KJV Luke 19:27
      “But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.”

      To hell with context…the verse is clear…

  5. Samaritan Seems to be using a very stupid argument,according to ahadith the best kind of Jihad is Jihad against unjust rulers

    Tariq ibn Shihab reported: A man asked the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, “What is the best jihad?” The Prophet said, “A word of truth in front of a tyrannical ruler.”

    Source: Musnad Aḥmad 18449

    Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to An-Nawawi

    And for the rest of your quotes,You quoted Surah 9:29
    ” Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled. ”

    But you must put this into historical context
    Even non Muslims agree this was revealed in a battle
    Reverend E.M. Wherry, writes:

    Vers. 29-128 refer to the events connected with the expedition to Tabuq, which occurred in Rajab of A.H. 9. They were not, however, all enunciated at one time, but partly before the expedition, partly on the march, and partly after the return. Vers. 29-35 may be referred to the time of arrival at Tabuq, when the Christian prince, John of Aylah, tendered his submission to Muhammad, paying tribute (Jazya). [1]

    And to put Tabuq into context
    In one of our authentic early Islamic sources, ‘Sahih Muslim’, it says:

    He (Hadrat ‘Umar further) said: I had a companion from the Ansar and, we used to remain in the company of the Messenger turn by turn. He remained there for a day while I remained there on the other day, and he brought me the news about the revelation and other (matter), and I brought him (the news) like this. And we discussed that the Ghassanids were shoeing the horses IN ORDER TO ATTACK US. Id y companion once attended (the Apostle). And then came to me at night and knocked at my door and called me, and I came out to him, and he said: A matter of great importance has happened. I said: What is that? Have the Ghassanids come? He said: No, but even more serious and more significant than that: the Prophet has divorced his wives. [2]

    As for 8:39 you quoted “Fight them until there is no fitnah”
    You must put this into context aswell

    8:38 Say to those who have disbelieved [that] if they cease [from war], what has previously occurred will be forgiven for them. But if they return [to hostility] – then the precedent of the former [rebellious] peoples has already taken place.

    So as we can see,none of what you quoted really spoke about any hostility caused by Muslims first at all.

    Stop with the cherry picking.
