David Robertson, writing in Christian Today, sounds like a very lovely fellow and I'm sure he is. He welcomes Muslims building a new mosque on his remote Island, which has to this day been dominated by the Free Church.
He ends his homily with these words:
The whole story is another reminder that the world is not as black and white as our soundbite culture portrays it. Thank the Lord that we live in a diverse and multi-coloured culture in which we still have freedom to preach the gospel to all.
That's all very fine and nice, and to be hoped for. But what of this: in the US, five separate studies, including one by an imam, have revealed 80% of mosques to be infiltrated by extremists and extremist literature (here). In the post immediately below, we have the Mayor of Brussels stating that every mosque in the European capital is controlled by Salafists (here).
What's to stop the eventual takeover of the very nice mosque in Stornoway by the same radicals. Why, nothing, for the radicals are the ones most motivated and relentless in their pursuit of Allah's order to spread Islam worldwide. This is their religious passion and religious duty.
Poor Father Robertson. He may not live to see this happen in his lifetime, but likely his progeny will, and find they lose "the freedom to preach the gospel to all", for that's blasphemy in Sharia law.
