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.
Paul Joseph Watson (h/t Marvin W) While the plans have upset many, they are welcomed by Fredrik Modéus, the Bishop of Växjö. “I welcome the application and look forward to hearing both church bells and calls to prayer in our city,” he writes in a statement on Twitter.
“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,” he continues on Facebook, emphasizing that it is a fundamental democratic right to exercise faith.
The application is likely to be granted because others have already been approved in Stockholm. This means that the offensive Islamic call to prayer, known as the adhan, 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.
When actual Swedes, especially the rich ones, are exposed to this eardrum-shattering noise pollution in their own neighborhoods, they are not so welcoming.
