Quotes From Today’s Heaadlines:
- “With my whole heart and soul, I express full, complete and vehement rejection of the satanic black mass scheduled at the Oklahoma City Civic Center on Aug. 15,” the petition reads. “I urge you to cancel this event which offends more than 1 billion Catholics worldwide, 200,000 Catholics in Oklahoma and countless more God-loving Americans. Sacrilege is simply NOT free speech,” the petition further states.The upcoming “black mass” will be led by Satanic group Dakhma of Angra Mainyu, which was co-founded by registered sex offender Adam Daniels. The event will involve two rituals — the black mass and the “consumption of Mary by Jai Kali Maa.”For TFP Student Action Director John Ritchie, the black mass is a “double attack” against Catholics because it targets both God and the Virgin Mary. He also questioned the nation’s direction when the government has now started allowing an event that offends God.”
- His father, a herbalist, saw Christians and Muslims, alike, for healing, so both traditions were common fixtures in his early existence. While Saka now sees himself as a believer in Jesus Christ, he told The Christian Science Monitor that it doesn’t “mean Islam is bad.” The outlet goes on to describe the ministry that Saka has built, in detail:
Yet worshipers at “The True Message of God Mission” say it’s entirely natural for Christianity and Islam to cexist, even overlap. They begin their worship by praying at the Jesus alcove and then “running their deliverance” – sprinting laps around the mosque’s mosaic-tiled courtyard, praying to the one God for forgiveness and help. They say it’s akin to Israelites circling the walls of Jericho – and Muslims swirling around the Ka’ba shrine in Mecca.
This group – originally called “Chris-lam-herb” for its mix-and-match approach to Christianity, Islam, and traditional medicine – is a window on an ongoing religious ferment in Africa. It’s still up for debate whether this group, and others like it, could become models for Muslim-Christian unity worldwide or whether they’re uniquely African. But either way, they are “part of a trend,” says Dana Robert, a Boston University religion professor.
To facilitate this trend, Saka does more than merely keep a Koran and a Bible in his house of worship. For the past two (by some accounts four) decades that Chrislam has been around, Saka has preached from both holy books to a congregation that houses 1,500 seats. He uses Christian and Muslim worship songs and, for maximim impact, his sermons are shown on local television.
