Sweden: Bishop supports Muslim demand to broadcast the call to prayer







Bishop Fredrik Modéus writes on Facebook that it is “natural” that “different traditions and religions are heard” and that he “hopes to hear both church bells and prayer calls in our city.”

And maybe he will, for awhile. But once the Muslims of whom he is so solicitous are in charge, he won’t be hearing the church bells anymore. In Islamic law: dhimmis are “forbidden to openly display wine or pork…to ring church bells or display crosses…recite the Torah or Evangel aloud, or make public display of their funerals and feastdays” (Reliance of the Traveller, o11.5(6)).







“The bishop of Växjö welcomes Muslim prayer call,” translated from “Biskopen i Växjö stift välkomnar muslimska böneutrop,” Samhällsnytt, February 13, 2018 (thanks to Denny):

The Växjö Muslim Foundation has submitted an application for the call to prayer. The motive should be that Muslims should “feel at home” and “be proud of their culture.” Now the bishop of the area has declared his support for the claim.

It is in the immigrant district of Araby in Växjö that the prayer call will be made, if the Muslim foundation gets its way, as Samhällsnytt has previously written.







Now the bishop of the area has declared his support for the demands of the Muslim organization. On Facebook, he writes about the proposal, saying that it is “natural” that “different traditions and religions are heard” and that he “hopes to hear both church bells and prayer calls in our city.”
