VATICAN - Pope: dialogue is essential to overcome mistrust between faiths and fears in secular society [AN]


“The future lies in the coexistence respectful of diversity, not in the approval of a single, theoretically neutral way of thinking”. Hence, “it becomes essential to recognise the fundamental right to religious freedom in all its dimensions.”



Wow!!! I really like this Pope!!! If only his flock would embrace this sentiment… and many of the other things he’s said. Instead, they spend a lot of time trying to explain away his comments in order to justify the status quo.
