Martin Luther & ISIS: Hamburg Lutherans Hold Funeral For ISIS Terrorist

Muslim Terrorist Honored By Hamburg Lutherans

Martin Luther on Islam:
Let the Turk believe and live as he will, just as one lets the papacy and other false Christians live. (On War Against the Turk) 
A smart Turk makes a better ruler than a dumb Christian
Muslims & Protestants cut from the same cloth:
Their teachers [Luther and Calvin] warned them [Protestants] against the Pope and the worshippers of Idols; they also told them not to hate the Muslims because they are the sword of God in the world against the idol-worshippers. That is why they side with the Muslims. (—Al-Hajari, The Book of the Protector of Religion against the Unbelievers) 
As you, for your part, do not worship idols, you have banished the idols and portraits and “bells” from churches, and declared your faith by stating that God Almighty is one and Holy Jesus is His Prophet and Servant, and now, with heart and soul, are seeking and desirous of the true faith; but the faithless one they call Papa does not recognize his Creator as One, ascribing divinity to Holy Jesus (upon him be peace!), and worshiping idols and pictures which he has made with his own hands, thus casting doubt upon the oneness of God and instigating how many servants to that path of error” —1574 letter of Murad III to the “Members of the Lutheran sect in Flanders and Spain” Exposing Martin Luther’s Love Affair With Islam Read More>>>>>

A German church is about to find out. The controversial funeral of the young man only identified as Florent is set for Friday in the northern Germany city of Hamburg. But everything from staging a service for a Muslim in a Christian church to honouring someone who fought for a terrorist organization has raised questions. "I have had to face a lot of criticism, asking how a pastor can celebrate a funeral for a terrorist," Lutheran pastor Sieghard Wilm told dpa in an interview. But he said he has also received support. "We're not backing away from this tough situation," says the pastor, who knew Florent for years, partially thanks to Wilm's work at a youth centre, partially because Florent once befriended a foster child Wilm had in his care. "As humans, we don't get to make the final judgment. That's only in God's remit." dpa Read More>>>>>>
