On a Friday afternoon earlier this month, a section of the Washington National Cathedral was reserved for the first-ever gathering of Muslims in the sanctuary, there for their weekly recitation of prayers. According to the Washington Post, the Very Rev. Gary Hall, dean of the cathedral who had helped arrange for the service to promote religious tolerance, said he "hoped the service would serve as the start of more efforts to work together for good." Although security was tight for the event, one heckler turned up, decrying the use of the cathedral by Muslims. The day before, the Rev. Franklin Graham, who heads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Assn. had made a Facebook post in which he wrote about the event that it was "sad to see a church open its doors to worship of anything other than the One True God of the Bible." The critics' sentiments resonated with some Americans, but not with others.
