‘God Gave Me a Sign’: Woman Drives 400 Miles to Disrupt Muslim Prayer at National Cathedral

Last week, for the first time in the nation’s history, Muslim prayer was held at the Episcopal-owned National Cathedral in Washington DC dubbed the “national house of prayer.’

The victory for religious acceptance and cooperation, though, was short-lived after one evangelical Christian decided to ruin the whole thing.

Christine Weick, 50, said she was called by God to shout down Muslims trying to pray after she read about it on the Drudge Report.

“My blood began to boil as I read the comments of how this is to be such a wonderful event and how religious tolerance can, for the first time, be shown in our nation’s capital.” she told WorldNetDaily, apparently horrified ‘tolerance’ extended to non-Christian beliefs.

So, emboldened by right wing fear tactics comparing the prayer to sharia and jihad, she went to Cathedral and started to shout at the invite-only gathering for Muslims to pray.

“Jesus Christ died on that cross. He is the reason we are to worship only Him. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior,” she screamed at the Muslim group at prayer. “We have built …allowed you your mosques in this country. Why don’t you worship in your mosques and leave our churches alone? We are a country founded on Christian principles.”

For some reason the woman, who had made the 400 mile trek from Tennessee just to yell, was not arrested at the scene.

“They never said a word to me. Two guys came up and got me. I remember one large man in a suit taking me by the arm, very strongly but he did not hurt me,” she said, saying security just firmly and rather politely kicked her out.

She also said on her way to Washington, she knew God had wanted her to shout, because she saw a sign direct from the Almighty.

“There’s this woman stepping out of her vehicle on the side of the road, clapping and giving me two thumbs up, and I’m like, ‘That was the strangest thing,’” she said. “The first thing that went through my mind was, ‘That’s my confirmation right there.’ That’s all I needed, and from that point on I knew this was something I’m going to do; and that was the catapult that moved me to keep going towards Washington.”
