Catholicism and Islam

  • "I call upon the Church, in every situation, to persist in esteem for Muslims … If all of us who believe in God desire to promote reconciliation, justice and peace, we must work together to banish every form of discrimination, intolerance and religious fundamentalism" — Pope's comments on Islam deserve applause.

  • In another report about "Catholics and Muslims {meeting] along the Jordan River for frank and friendly talks about their differences and how to get beyond their misunderstandings," we learn among other things that Muslims "suggested the Catholics had given in too much to modern secularism and not protested enough against depictions of Jesus that Muslims considered blasphemous" — Catholic-Muslims spured out of Pope’s comments five years ago.
