A protester at the first-ever Muslim prayer service at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., said she was prompted by God to interrupt the proceedings.

Christine Weick, 50, said in an interview with WND.com that she was incensed upon reading about the prayer event, which was the first time the cathedral turned over the pulpit for a Muslim service.

“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, WND.com reported. “This article got my attention. And then I Googled the Washington National Cathedral and I got more information about the service.”

Ms. Weick said she drove from Tennessee to the cathedral, all along, wondering if her planned protest would land her in jail.

“I said … this is what God has put in my bones to do,” she said, adding that she asked four people to pray for her.

And Friday, inside the service and in front of dozens of Muslims who had gathered for the historical prayer event, Ms. Weick stood up and beckoned to the Christian cross.

“Jesus Christ died on that cross,” she said, WND.com reported. “He is the reason we are to worship only Him. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. We have … 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.”

Shortly after, security officials approached and escorted her from the facility. But she was not arrested, she said.
