The first “liberal mosque” is set to open today in a church in Berlin.
Liberal, huh? I guess they’re going to hold their services in the left-wing of that church. It’s the last mosque on the left side of that street, by the way.
Liberal? Why the pews in that mosque lean so far to the left that everybody piles up on the prayer mat.
Why that mosque is so liberal that the cleric plans to let his husband be the first one to call the faithful to prayer.
The brainchild behind the mosque is feminist, peace activist and lawyer Seyran Ates, who moved to Germany from Turkey at the age of six. It will allow men and women to pray and preach together rather than separately. “Fundamentally, the mosque’s door is open for everyone, with one exception: No one will come in with a niqab or burqa.”
