Muslims, Christians unite in prayer against violence

About 100 people gathered at the Masjid Al Madina mosque in Hoke County a week after the massacre in New Zealand.

A week after a gunman killed at least 50 people worshiping at two mosques in New Zealand and injured dozens of others, Muslims and Christians prayed together at a mosque in Hoke County on Friday to show their solidarity in the face of terrorism.

“We know that terrorists have no religion, they have no ideology,” said Muhammad Lodhi, a volunteer at the Masjid Al Madina mosque, to about 100 people gathered for the interfaith service. “They have no name also. They are just called as terrorists.”

Islam, Christianity and Judaism are all religions of peace and do not teach terrorism, Lodhi said.

Pastors from three churches in Moore County and some of their church members attended. Several spoke to the assembly.

“We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for welcoming us here,” said John Arnold, a member of the Congregational Church of Pinehurst.

    This is dreadful. But is this really worse than Christians and their churches celebrating Easter (Ishtar), Halloween and Christmas?

    Well, “we all worship the same religion”!
    I worship Jesus Christ, Son of God, which in Islam says “this is a death crime”. So, either Mohammad or Jesus is lying. I stand – no – Jesus stands with me!!!!! Thank God!!!!!

    Wow, wow, wow…this is big! The formation of the one world religion is well under way. Although their brotherly love for others is commendable, we do not serve the same God!

    We do not worship the same God, ours is a loving God. Not one that says kill the infidels. Jesus came into the world to save us all from sin.

    Waiting for the favorable time to cut the throat between them.
    As before, between the Crusaders and Saracens.
    No confidence in them. Judas kisses
