The Assault on Christianity by Paul Walker

The Provost of Glasgow’s Episcopal Church, St. Mary’s Cathedral, as a form of multicult interfaith, or whatever, replaced a reading from the Bible with a reading from the Koran, at the Eucharist of the Feast of the Epiphany. The reading was Surah 19 which is a famous passage denying the divinity of Christ:

Here is the passage:

The passage was enthusiastically read by a Muslim law student, who then placed the video on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCXgjWfsmIY.

Chaplain Gavin Ashenden protested about this, pointing out the obvious absurdity in the affair. However, “after a conversation instigated by officials at Buckingham Place,” Ashenden decided to resign as a queen’s chaplain, so he could freely comment. He was not sacked as such, but under the circumstances, had to resign.
He stated: “the Queen should not be drawn into public affairs where she is deemed to be taking a position,” which includes matters such as the assault on Christianity, even if she is Fidei Defensor.
