A woman who took it upon herself to interrupt the first Muslim prayer service in the National Cathedral with psychotic, pseudo-Christian babbling has a good reason for her outburst: God and Matt Drudge. The woman’s outburst was largely ignored as she was escorted out of the building, but not before the Michigan resident, who managed to sneak into the invite-only service, spoke her piece.
In a true demonstration of Christian love and tolerance, 50-year-old Christine Weick stood up as the prayer service was commencing and shouted “Jesus Christ died on that cross. He is the reason we are to worship only him. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. We have built and allowed you your mosques in this country. Why don’t you worship in your mosques and leave our churches alone? We are a country founded on Christian principles.”
The intolerant woman was removed from the prayer service by a reverend and cathedral police, and the service continued with no further interruptions.
In an interview with conspiratorial garbage dump WorldNetDaily, Weicke explained that the cross hanging overhead was the one thing no one seemed to want to look at, ignoring that the prayer rugs were arranged facing Mecca — though Weicke interpreted this as everyone turning their backs to the cross.
“They were yelling for security, and by that point I was already done saying what I came to say,” Weicke said. Weicke explained that she was not arrested or harmed as she was escorted out of the building following her disruption.
“They never said a word to me. Two guys came up and got me. I remember one large man in a suit taking me by the arm, very strongly but he did not hurt me,” she said. “He just put an arm on me and said, ‘We are walking this way.’ Then comes the police officer, and I’m thinking, ‘OK I’m done.’ I’m still in the sanctuary at this point, so I put out my hands for the officer to arrest me, but he just held my hand and walked me to the back of the church.”
“He handed me over to a woman officer, who takes me to the front doors of the church. She hands me to another officer, who takes me to another officer in the foyer, who takes me out to the road. Not one of them said a word. I was free to go,” she explained.
Weicke, homeless after her divorce last year over a “spiritual conflict” with her ex-husband, and disowned by her family because of her anti-gay bigotry and other “moral issues,” lives in her SUV. She says she learned of the prayer service through the farcical repository of nonsensical babble known as the Drudge Report, and felt that God was calling her to interrupt the prayer service with her moronic musings.
Weick says she does not consider herself homeless, as she has money — she explained that she is simply too cheap to stay in a hotel as she “travels place to place for the Lord.”
“My blood began to boil as I read the comments of how this is to be such a wonderful event and how religious tolerance can, for the first time, be shown in our nation’s capital,” she said of her decision to introduce some intolerance. “That article got my attention. And then I Googled the Washington National Cathedral, and I got more information about the service.”
When she found out the event was invite-only, she said she “knew [she] had to be creative, and so did God.” Weicke says she began to have doubts about her mission — but then a woman randomly gave her two thumbs up, and that was all the confirmation she needed that her open display of hatred was the right thing to do.
“It was a God thing how I got past all that security in the beginning. They never ID’d me, and I had brought my ID with me just in case, and I thought that would be my downfall, being from Michigan, that they would say, ‘What is she doing here?” Weick said. “According to reports, this was a heavy security event. They checked every bag and every person that walked in there. I bet some security people are in big trouble today.”
She says she slipped through security by first following a security guard, then by making conversation with a woman who had press credentials. “I just followed those security officers when they were going from place to place. I just followed them,” she said. “It was almost like they didn’t see me. Like I was invisible.”
Weicke then hid in a bathroom. “When I was in the bathroom hiding out, that’s when it hit me: I think I’m invisible, I really wondered, the way it happened, just strange, just totally strange; and someday I’m going to ask God how that all worked out,” she said.
This is not the first time Weicke has made headlines. On Mother’s Day, she proudly stood on a street corner in Michigan and used the holiday as a platform for hate. Weicke, holding a sign that read “Thank you mom today for not being gay,” encouraged a counter-protest. Others held signs dismissing her bigoted message, and one person with whom she started an argument threw a slushie in Weicke’s face.
