For background information about the meetings, see this Reuters article of 11/06/08.
The statement includes an enumerated list of fifteen points which present a target rich environment In this installment, I'll take on the tenth point of agreement.[Links & emphasis added.]
We are convinced that Catholics and Muslims have the duty to provide a sound education in human, civic, religious and moral values for their respective members and to promote accurate information about each other's religions.Taken at face value, point 10 means that the participants accept the concept of inculcating sound moral values and teaching the truth about their rivals. They could start by comparing & contrasting Christianity & Islam. Diane Dew's web site has a side by side comparison. They could continue by reading each other's scripture in their worship services.
They won't do that because reading Al-Anfal, Al-Taubah, Al-AZhab, Al-Fath & As-Saff would put the lie to all of their touchy~feely pronouncements how peaceful Islam is. Nor will Imams & Mullahs read the Gospels & Acts to their congregants because it would expose the lies told by Moe about Christianity.
Either the Muslim participants in the forum are contradicting Allah & his Messenger and abandoning Islam or their affirmation multiculturalism is insincere. Which is it?
