"Mustafa"? The "Chosen" One?

How very proud members of the Anglican Communion must be now, to have hosted, in a "Royal Peculiar of the Supreme Governor", the "Collegiate Church of St Peter" an ecumenical service in commemoration of the centenary of the Gallipoli campaign a prayer, praising God, and wishing peace upon all His prophets, you know, the regular ones, and then, of course, the Chosen One.

That would be a human being named Mohammed. The plain ol' ordinary ones, the lesser though still "auspicious" prophets would include Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses... oh, and a guy named Jesus. You know, the Christ. Messiah. Son of the Living God. Second person of the Trinity. The Word Who was made flesh. Who was with God.

Who WAS God.

Muslims should of course pray how they wish.

But what Christian Chur church finds such speech appropriate within the confines of her sacred spaces?

And how could it hope to endure?
