VATICAN - ISLAM - Catholic-Muslim dialogue: "It is never acceptable to use religion to justify" violence [AN]


The Catholic-Muslim Forum releases a final statement following its meeting in Rome on ‘Working together to serve others’. Young people should be educated to build “respect for others”. Inter-religious dialogue is important “to overcome prejudice, distortions, suspicions, and inappropriate generalisations.” Pope Francis encouraged participants in their efforts.



Unfortunately those who behead, stone and burn others alive in the name of religion will not get this message.
