The Rev. Ann Holmes, Episcopal Priest, and certified whacko has decided that she is both a Muslim and a Christian.
Now, they are making it just too easy. I mean, c’mon, this almost seems like a setup.
How is it possible to be a Muslim and a Christian you ask?
Redding doesn’t feel she has to resolve all the contradictions. People within one religion can’t even agree on all the details, she said. “So why would I spend time to try to reconcile all of Christian belief with all of Islam?
“At the most basic level, I understand the two religions to be compatible. That’s all I need.”
I am glad that is all she needs because if she needed, say intellect, she would come up a little short.
“It wasn’t about intellect,” she said. “All I know is the calling of my heart to Islam was very much something about my identity and who I am supposed to be.[Whew!]
In Redding’s car, she has hung up a cross she made of clear crystal beads. Next to it, she has dangled a heart-shaped leather object etched with the Arabic symbol for Allah.
“For me, that symbolizes who I am,” Redding said. “I look through Jesus and I see Allah.”
Now, now…I know that you are tempted to see this as just an isolated incident or the kooky Episcopalians up to old tricks and that Catholics would never tolerate such utter nonsense. Think Again. On Tuesday June 19th, one will be able to hear the 99 names of Allah sung to solemn music in the supposedly Catholic Westminster Cathedral.
The world has clearly gone mad.
