Christian booted from National Cathedral speaks out

Christine Weick is approached be security at the National Cathedral in Washington Friday, Nov. 14, as she stands up to proclaim “Jesus is our Lord and Savior”It was supposed to be a shining moment for proponents of the interfaith movement.The Islamic “jummah,” or Friday call to prayer, would be held on America’s grandest Christian stage – the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.It was a bold move that had never been tried. Leaders of the Episcopal cathedral said sending prayers up to Allah from a Christian church would show the world that two religions at odds with each other for centuries could “approach the same God” as one body of believers. The stage was set. The prayer rugs were neatly arranged facing Mecca. The lights shone down on the imam for his opening remarks. Not so fast. Christine Weick, a 50-year-old Michigan woman with flowing blonde hair who lives out of her car, rose from the packed National Cathedral, the hall of halls in terms of religious prominence in America, and moved toward the front of the church. She pointed to the cross hanging overhead.
