Church to be turned into mosque

“Former Massachusetts Catholic church sold, slated to become a mosque”

It will still be a house of worship. That’s something that was important to Lokman Yanbul and Catholic parishioners regarding the former St. Matthew Church in Indian Orchard. The 142-year-old colonial church and the rectory next door were sold for $150,000 in October to the Turkish-American Islamic Society Inc., which plans to convert the church into a mosque. “We did this for the children,” said Yanbul, referring to why the local Turkish-American community felt the need to have its own mosque. “We want them to (be able to) continue their cultural and religious heritage.”

  • “It will still be used as a house of worship..”

    Even one supposes,  based on this example of indifferentism, if The Church of Satan had purchased it?  The True Church continues to be diminished as heretical Islam advances, and these fools call it good.  Lord help us.

  • I don’t think the honus here is on Cardinal Law. It is the milquetoast “Catholicism” of the vast majority of Boston “Catholics,” the changing demographics AND the growth of Islam.

    Oh yes, and all those Catholics who have left the Church to join other denominations or NOTHING in the past 40 years. But we’re not supposed to mention that, are we?

    Here come the Muslims. This will increase everywhere in Europe AND in the U.S.

    Something about reading “the signs of the times.”

  • I wouldn’t mind if the AD sold the Paulist center to the Turks.  The legislators could use the sisht of a mineret to remind them of what they are in for.  And the Muslims would probably be an improvement over the current occupants on the issues of life and homosexuality.

  • uhm, Indian Orchard is in the Springfield, MA Diocese, right?  I don’t think Cardinal Law or any Boston archbishop has ever had much to do with the administration of the diocese since it was split from Boston back in the 19th century.
