As discussed in my post yesterday, Pope Benedict XVI brought the tensions between Muslims and Catholics into the open and discussed them with religious leaders at a conference this month. The conference was held to address the open letter from Muslim leaders who were offended by a speech the Pope made in 2006. They demanded a dialogue to dispel the stereotype that Islam is inherently irrational and Muslims are prone to violence.
This month’s topic is family and women’s rights and the radio program will be on December 4th, 2008. I’m working on a formal page to outline of suggested topics so the community online can help produce the show.
