Reader comment on: Nomination for Nobel Peace Prize: Reverend Gavin Ashenden
Submitted by John MacArthur, Jan 25, 2017 13:41
Few actions are more harshly forbidden in the Old Testament than sacrifice to the god Moloch (Leviticus 18.21, 20.1-5). The sacrifice referred to was presenting living children to be consumed in strange offertory fire to Moloch – a perfect metaphor for the suicide bomber or the Palestinian driven to murderous attacks against Israelis whose inevitable outcome will be his death. Ever since then, worship of Moloch has been the sign of a deeply degraded culture and in essence is at the heart of ISIS, Hamas and all the other proponents of terror. Including Koranic readings is not only offensive, it's delusional since, put simply and much as the C of E or the C of S would wish it otherwise, the Christians and the Muslims do not worship the same deity.
