OK, I admit it; that’s a sensationalized title. But from an Islamic perspective, it’s exactly what happened a few days ago in Glasgow.
The Scottish Episcopal Church is part of the Anglican Communion, but it is not under the authority of the Archbishop of Canterbury. As part of its celebration of Christmas and Epiphany, the Glasgow cathedral of the Episcopal Church recently invited a Muslim woman to chant part of Chapter 19 of the Koran — the part that talks about the virgin birth of the Islamic version of Jesus.
Other parts of Chapter 19 specifically deny the divinity of Jesus Christ, and say that he is not the son of God. But that doesn’t seem to matter to Scottish Episcopalians, who don’t really believe in God or Jesus all that much, anyway.
The Islamization of the cathedral in Glasgow has caused outrage in some quarters, but as of this writing, the leaders of the Scottish Episcopal Church do not regret their decision to allow the reading of the Koran in their cathedral.
Vlad Tepes has subtitled a video of the reading in the cathedral, and includes as a postscript the rest of the verses about Jesus in Chapter 19 of the Koran:
