Swedish Bishop Welcomes Muslim Call to Prayer as “Good” For Society

What does a false religion that promotes hate, murder and oppression have that will bring any “Good” to people or Society as a whole? This Bishop is MAD!

Jihad Watch – 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.”

The Church of Sweden is the Lutheran Church

You can put lipstick and a dress on a pig and try to pass it off as a woman, but it is STILL a PIG! What do Lutheran’s believe and what is their doctrine based on? Why Roman Catholicism!

Got Questions The Lutheran Church is actually many different bodies, all of which base their teachings and practice to some degree on the work of Martin Luther. There is such a wide variance in their particular beliefs that it would be difficult to address them all, but this article will attempt to outline those most commonly held.

Martin Luther was born and raised in Germany and studied philosophy and law as a young man, but soon became discouraged by those studies. He became an Augustinian Monk in 1505, but the isolated lifestyle only led him to further despair as he spent countless hours in meditation and contemplation. In 1507, he was ordained a Roman Catholic priest and later began teaching theology at the University of Wittenberg. During his years teaching theology, Luther grew increasingly frustrated at the excesses and abuses which he saw within the leadership of the Roman Catholic Church. On October 31, 1517, he posted his 95 Theses on the door of All Saint’s Church in Wittenberg, which was the accepted practice for anyone at the university who wanted to engage in theological debate. The majority of Luther’s theses addressed the lack of biblical knowledge, practice, and accountability among the leaders of the church, and were intended to point them back to Scripture. Martin Luther was not the first to address these issues; in fact, most of them had been pointed out by other men within the Roman Catholic Church for nearly 100 years. Despite the steady stream of critics, the Catholic Church refused to admit error or make any substantial changes.

As with the other Reformers, who were all born, baptized, confirmed and educated in the Roman Catholic Church, Luther had no intention of starting a new church, but only wanted to correct what he saw as violations of clear biblical teaching. Part of the problem was a widespread ignorance of the Bible, even among ordained priests. Carlstadt, an older peer of Luther, admitted that he was made a Doctor of Divinity before he had even seen a complete copy of the Bible. One of the driving factors in Luther’s work was the desire to have clear teaching for the common questions of the people, such as, “What must a man do to be saved?” and “How shall a sinner be justified before God and attain peace for his troubled conscience?” After a series of meetings in which Luther refused to recant his views, Pope Leo X excommunicated Martin Luther in 1521. Many of the common people and German nobility followed Luther’s teaching, and the Lutheran Church began to be organized as a separate body in 1525. In recent years, most Lutheran bodies have made efforts to mend the breach with the Roman Catholic Church.

In 1530, the German lords were requested by the Pope to give an accounting of their beliefs (as well as reconfirm their fidelity to the Holy Roman Empire), and they gave their reply in the Augsburg Confessions. This was the first detailed confession of faith by German Lutherans, and it is still the primary document used by Lutherans to describe and guide their faith. In 1580, the Book of Concord combined 10 documents which were considered authoritative for guiding the Lutheran faith. That book is still used today, but has a different degree of authority within the various Lutheran bodies.


1st Corinthians 16:22 “If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.”

Anathema - a person or thing accursed or consigned to damnation or destruction.

Maranatha - the Lord is coming” or “come, O Lord.


Though there are quite a few organized Lutheran groups around the world, the two main bodies in America are the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), and the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS). The ELCA has roughly 5 million members in 10,500 churches, and the LCMS has roughly 2.3 million members in 6,167 churches. The ELCA was formed in 1988 by a merger of the American Lutheran Church, the Association of Evangelical Lutheran Churches, and the Lutheran Church in America. The LCMS was formed in 1847 by Saxon (German) Lutherans who came to America to escape persecution and the detrimental effects of German Rationalism on their faith. Both churches hold to the Augsburg Confession, which teaches that all men are born in sin, and therefore need to be justified through faith in Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. Along with faith in Christ, baptism is “necessary for salvation” and therefore “children should be baptized, for being offered to God through baptism they are received into his grace” (Art. IX). [Note: the LCMS qualifies the official position on baptism by saying, “The LCMS does not believe that Baptism is ABSOLUTELY necessary for salvation,” but then goes on to say that baptism is “a powerful means of grace by which God grants faith and the forgiveness of sins” (emphasis in the original, http://www.lcms.org/faqs/doctrine, accessed 11/9/2016).] The Lutheran church teaches that all men have some measure of freedom of the will—which is ironic considering Luther comes to the opposite conclusion in one of his most famous books, The Bondage of the Will. Lutherans also believe that, without God’s grace and help, given by the Holy Spirit, man is incapable of fearing or believing in God.

Many of the ceremonies and liturgies of the Catholic Church have been carried over into the Lutheran Church, with modifications to reflect their distinct doctrines. Some of the differences between the ELCA and LCMS stem from their divergent views on the Bible. While the LCMS affirms that the Bible is infallible in all areas (Psalm 19:7; 2 Timothy 3:16), the ELCA states that it is possible for the Bible to be in error concerning some areas, like science or history. In general, all Lutheran churches teach salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, but the manner in which that faith is lived out can vary from an empty participation in ceremonies to a very personal relationship with God.

Endorses application for “Allahu Akbar” refrain to be broadcast via loudspeakers in Swedish suburb

Paul Watson – A Swedish Bishop has responded to an application to have the Muslim call to prayer broadcast in the immigrant suburb of Araby, Växjö by welcoming the move as a positive sign of multiculturalism.

“Muslims are not visitors in Växjö, we live here,” said Imam Ismail Abu Helal, asserting that, “The Islamic community should be proud of their culture, and not feel like they have to hide.”

Fredrik Modéus, the Bishop of Växjö, endorsed the proposal.

“It is natural in a multicultural and multi-religious society that different traditions and religions are heard, are visible and are interacting for a good society,” said Modéus in a statement, adding, “I therefore welcome the application for call to prayer.”

The Bishop said the call to prayer was no different to church bells and should be embraced.

The application is likely to be granted because others have already been approved in Stockholm. This means that the call to prayer, known as the adzhan, which is broadcast five times a day in Islamic countries via loudspeakers and usually begins with the refrain “Allahu Akbar,” will soon ring out across Swedish towns and cities.

Respondents to the Bishop’s statement were not so positive.

“Maybe the next step will be that the Church of Sweden adapts to Sharia law as well?” asked one.

“Feels good to have left the church in 1982, so that I did not not have to support these fools financially,” added another.

That last remark is prescient given that the Swedish Church is set to lose one million members over the next 10 years and is being forced to sell properties to make ends meet.

Meanwhile, as we reported in 2015, another Swedish Bishop expressed her desire to see Christian symbols removed from to make them “more inviting” for Muslims.

Eva Brunne, who is the first openly lesbian bishop of a mainstream church in the world, wants the church to be treated more like a public airport, where prayer rooms are made available to Muslims, by removing Christian symbols and “marking the direction of Mecca.”

Sweden makes for an interesting case study because it has chosen to obliterate itself as a kind of sacrifice to the Gods of political correctness.

While the country holds the ignoble title of being the rape capital of Europe, left-wing activists are outraged instead over “sexist” street names.

Rather than address the clear connection between soaring migrant arrivals and sexual assaults of women, the country has instead decided to censor such statistics and prosecute people who try to draw attention to the problem.

Swedish police officer Peter Springare, who last year made headlines after asserting that almost all violent crimes he dealt with were committed by foreign migrants, is now under investigation for merely observing that “foreign-born offenders” are largely responsible for the country’s gang rape problem.
