    "We had a volunteer call various locations around Newark, and within a day we found four or five places that are able to house the number of people they wished to house and that are not cost prohibitive," he said


    Just wondering how much the church charged?

    Pity......... the world recognizes a building where the church meets is of any significance! Wonder what that student would think if he realized that every day he attended school and sat by a Christian..... he was sitting by a temple of God.

    apologized to ? why ?
    i don't think think apologies were forthcoming to him.
    the school had the right to hold those graduation ceremonies where they felt it fit.
    if he doesn't like the idea, then he can ask the school to mail him his diploma.
    why should these Muslims turn Americans into second class citizens just because of political correctness ?

    If he was really offended because he made a choice to sit in a church then I would suggest it only proves his lost and dying condition. Unless he repents and turns to Christ in faith he will remain under the wrath of God and will be eternally seperated from God in hell. So I guess I can understand why a church would make him nervous.

    He made a choice to attend the graduation services. Also, our constitution does not guarantee a person the right not to be offended. Maybe he should read the constitution or move to a Muslim country where Christians have no rights and are actively persecuted.

    What if the local mosque had volunteered its facilities for the graduation. Would anyone be uncomfortable with that?

    That poor poor child, he had to attend a ceremony in a church. He will be damaged for life. As for a mosque, so long as it doens't directly promote it's beliefs, then there's no problem. Here's the question. Would a local mosque allow us infidels to use it's facilities?

    It would not matter. The majority of students in this nation are not Muslim so your situation is unlikely to happen. Most public high school graduations are held in gyms, auditoriums, civic centers, and on ball fields. And thats the way it should be. If a person is uncomfortable with the location of the graduation ceremony, then they don't have to attend. Its called taking responsibility for one's self.

    Oh, but Bro. Martin, no one wants to do that these days. Personal responsibilty is to be shirked and shunned at all costs. After all, it's the American way! :BangHead:

    Personally I don't care, really. If I had a child and his school uses a Muslim mosque or its grounds for graduation ceremonies, I say let's send the Imam a note of appreciation.

    If that happened in that school, I'm sure most of the students there would be high-fiveing and saying "kewl, man". Young people would probably be excited about the idea.

    I'm sure the boy would have no problem had they held it in his place of worship, or am I wrong as usual? I know nothing about the Muslim religion and don't want to know. I have all I can do to remember the truth of God's word without studying false religions.

    The guy is a Muslim. If he thought he was going to hell without Jesus, then he would already be a Christian, or at least thinking of converting. In reality he is more likely to (falsely) believe he is going to incur the wrath of ''Allah'' because he attended a Christian church.

    :laugh:
    I wouldn't be offended... if it was big enough, and had AC... I hate crowded rooms with no AC.. and the people around me don't appreciate it either when i forget my deodorant!:laugh:

    Seriously, as a true Baptist, I support the rights for anyone to worship anyway they want, as long as it does not harm innocent people... i.e. flying planes into buildings as a religious ceremony, or raping 13 yr old girls and calling it a "spiritual marriage"...

    The Building is just a building.

    What would be the difference between having it in a RC church or a mosque, or kingdom hall?
