    Greatest Church Soon To Be Mega Mosque?

    6/8/12 by Raymond Ibrahim

    Though ostensibly dealing with a building, a recent report demonstrates how Turkey’s populace—once deemed the most secular and liberal in the Muslim world—is reverting to its Islamic heritage, complete with animosity for the infidel West and dreams of Islam’s glory days of jihad and conquest. According to Reuters:

    Thousands of devout Muslims prayed outside Turkey’s historic Hagia Sophia museum on Saturday [May 23] to protest a 1934 law that bars religious services at the former church and mosque. Worshippers shouted, “Break the chains, let Hagia Sophia Mosque open,” and “God is great” [the notorious “Allahu Akbar”] before kneeling in prayer as tourists looked on. Turkey’s secular laws prevent Muslims and Christians from formal worship within the 6th-century monument, the world’s greatest cathedral for almost a millennium before invading Ottomans converted it into a mosque in the 15th century.

    It is a beautiful place, and why do you care? It was a mosque from 1453 - 1935.

    It’s about the ‘spread of Islam,’ the ‘new communism.’

    The poster made MANY typos I am sure. And I do not recall Christ's MEGA Church being mentioned, I must have missed Sunday school that day.

    I might have missed something, but it sounds like people are just protesting. It didn't sound like it was being converted anytime soon.
