English Bishops Call for Islamic Prayer Rooms in Catholic Schools
#1

From National Review, 12/29/08, p. 10


The Catholic bishops of England and Wales have called

for Islamic prayer rooms to be provided in their parochial

schools, 30 percent of whose students are non-Catholic.

The bishops don't stop there. Devout Muslims purify themselves

before prayer through a ritual called Wudhu. This

involves washing the face, hands, arms, and feet three times

each, gargling the mouth three times, and washing the neck

and inside the nose and ears. Some Muslims also wash their

private parts. Wudhu must be performed after using the

lavatory or breaking wind. Well, the bishops want their

schools to offer Wudhu facilities, too: bidets, foot spas, and

hoses. Accommodation of Muslims sometimes seems to be

the central organizing feature of British public life these

days.

This is the continuing rot that set in once the Church in England and Wales decided to receive state funding for their schools - he who pays the piper etc. "Cohesion" is something the government rabbits on about here and Catholic education being under attack in the media here, and among some politicians, the bishops are going the extra mile to keep the funding. Unfortunately its an extra mile towards hell.

If only they had the courage to say "we'll fund our own schools and those we can't we'll close".

These "bishops" and others like them have trouble accomodating the TLM for faithful Catholics who request it but have no problem accomodating Muslims with prayer rooms and baths in Catholic schools.

They probably take their cue from the Principles and Norms on Ecumenism:

141. In Catholic schools and institutions, every effort should be made to respect the faith and conscience of students or teachers who belong to other Churches or ecclesial Communities. In accordance with their own approved statutes, the authorities of these schools and institutions should take care that clergy of other Communities have every facility for giving spiritual and sacramental ministration to their own faithful who attend such schools or institutions. As far as circumstances allow, with the permission of the diocesan Bishop these facilities can be offered on the Catholic premises, including the church or chapel.

But the case of the "bishops" of England would actually be abusing this directive in the "spirit of Vatican II" and a false ecumenism. This is said of non-Catholic Christians, not Muslims and it is spoken of those clergy of other communities minitering to their own faithful. The "bishops" have no busssiness providing these things to Muslims in a Catholic school. It provies a platform within Catholic schools for the proclaimation of Muslim's beliefs and risks leading faithful Catholics astray.

The decision of these "bishops" has neither the interests of the Church nor that of Muslims' souls in mind but their own pockets. It is no wonder why Archbishop Fulton Sheen said that if you want to destroy the faith of your children you just have to send them to Catholic schools.

It is called a "sink", all Muslims use it all over the world where available. Never failed for them.

Allah is indeed great. He just frowns upon the mentioned false religion of Muhammadanism.

Since they've been playing bishops for so long, they might as well play ulema now. See how Dr. Williams would look good as Mullah Williams.
