Eva Brunne, the world's first openly lesbian bishop, has called for a church in Stockholm, Sweden, to remove all signs of the cross, and instead build an Islamic prayer room to avoid offending Muslims.
According to the Stockholm-based news outlet SVT.se, Brunne not only intends to remove the Christian symbols but also set up a prayer room inside the church that would cater to people of other religions, particularly Muslim visitors. She explained that by doing so, Muslim refugees entering Sweden will be more at ease.
Thousands of refugees from Syria and the Middle East have been making their way through Europe into Western states. Christian leaders, such as Pope Francis, have called on parishes across the continent to open up their doors and welcome in refugees.
Brunne's attempts to make life more comfortable for Muslims and other non-Christian visitors were criticized by Pamela Geller, author of "Stop the Islamisation of America."
"Sweden has lost it," Geller told WND. "It is sacrificing its own heritage to accommodate immigrants who will not be as accommodating to native non-Muslim Swedes. The 'bishop' is paving the way for the Islamisation of Sweden."
It is easy to slip into compromise and apostasy when you do not take the word of God seriously. The fact that the church of Sweden has supported a lesbian bishop is a sign of its own failure to represent God properly. It is apostate, a false church.
The Church of Sweden is also a member of the worldwide Council of churches, another sign of compromise.
“He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead” (Luke 16:31).
