A weekly call to prayer for Muslims will be heard at Duke University starting Friday, school officials said.
Members of the Duke Muslim Students Association will chant the call, known as adhan or azan, from the Duke Chapel bell tower each Friday at 1 p.m. The call to prayer will last about three minutes and be ‚Äúmoderately amplified,‚ÄĚ officials said in a statement Tuesday.
‚ÄúThe adhan is the call to prayer that brings Muslims back to their purpose in life, which is to worship God, and serves as a reminder to serve our brothers and sisters in humanity,‚ÄĚ said Imam Adeel Zeb, Muslim chaplain at Duke. ‚ÄúThe collective Muslim community is truly grateful and excited about Duke‚Äôs intentionality toward religious and cultural diversity.‚ÄĚ...

13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:
14 From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes. Psalm 17:
As Abraham Lincoln noted, what is taught in the university today will rule your nation tomorrow. We are there. Elections matters but so does self government. It starts by taking back your towns, cities and states . Economic secession will eventually be established as our government will not be able to sustain it's commitments. Eventually the US will run out of spending somebodiies else's money.
Isn't that the same call to prayer the terrorists use? Why in the world would Duke University do this? When will they pray the Lords Prayer over the speaker system? It seems the more violence muslims create, the more our liberals cater to them. Soon, we will also have zones where Americans cannot enter.
The really sad thing is that it does them no good whatsoever, a total waste of time because their god is dead. Remember when Elijah was on Mount Carmel facing all the false prophets of Ahab and Jezebel and their god never responded to their pleas to show himself by bringing fire down on their sacrifice. They prayed, nothing, they cut themselves until blood ran down their arms. Elijah taunted them to cry out louder maybe they were asleep. Final they gave up and Elijah built his altar and even put water in the trenches around , poured water on the wood of the altar. He prayed, fire came down, licked up the water in the trenches and lit the wood on the altar. The people turned to God, killed all the false prophets, the dought ended and after Elijah prayed the rains came!! Our God lives and reighs and hears the prayers we quietly pray wherever even in our closets, especially in our closets. So continue on Soliders of the Cross He hears our every prayer no matter how softly spoken.

Duke is the University that Congress taps most for College page positions, so pc rules. I guess the students should be grateful its only once a week. Ever been to a country where that call goes out at 4:30 am every morning? Its ghastly
