Still Viral: The "Brave German Woman"

It's been over six months since "the brave German woman," Heidi Mund, interrupted the invocation of a Muslim imam at a a Muslim / Christian concert at a church in Speyer that had been built to honor Martin Luther, but the video is still viral on the internet.  On hearing him invoke Allah, she suddenly began to shout out her confession from the balcony. "Jesus Christus allein ist Herr über Deutschland. . . . Ich stehe hier; Ich kann nicht anders!" she cried, refusing to be silenced, in what she later called "an holy anger." Here it is with her interview, which is quite moving.   HT: Rev. Wade Seaver
