Christian Group Marks Inauguration Day By Praying At Mosques


A group of Christians in California is marking Inauguration Day in unique fashion.

That group is the Los Angeles-based Progressive Christians Uniting, and it says it's praying with Muslims on Friday in the name of unity against the threat against religious freedom.

PCU's president, Rev. Paige Eaves, told the Huffington Post,

Another member of the organization, Rev. Timothy Murphy added,

In a newsletter, PCU made it clear that its decision to pray at mosques on Friday is, in part, a reaction to the "many xenophobic and anti-Islamic public statements" made by President Donald Trump.


The apparent motive is to preemptively fight against a restriction or suppressions of religious freedom for everyone, before the worse comes to worst.

The newsletter read,

PCU's gesture is not unlike others that have been made toward the Muslim community in direct response to the election of President Trump.

One example? Shortly after the election, a letter was left on an Indian mosque's door in a show of solidarity with Muslims who were fearing the worst.

According to its newsletter, PCU will be sending members to seven different mosques in the Los Angeles area.

Considering their reasons for being there, it looks safe to assume their presence will be welcomed there.
