Lynne, did you know Muslims were invited to pray in the National Cathedral earlier this month? Men on one side, women on the other and facing AWAY from the cross, toward Mecca.
Did you know Muslims believe once they pray in a building, they OWN that building FOREVER? They said they'd see the Muslim flag flying over the White House and they aren't far wrong.
