As intellectual leaders from around the globe converge at the U.S.-Islamic World Forum in Doha, Qatar, many question how the relationship arrived at its current state.
I think Gary Brown has it right when he states that faith is not to blame, but the individuals who have abused their positions as leaders in those faiths are. As soon as we get thought and faith leaders that are more interested in peace than in power, we can begin to move forward toward that peace.
"He writes,'a simple appeal to the sacred books of both cultures immediately gives the lie to those who—ruled by hate, prejudice or secular ambition rather than by genuine religious sentiments—allege that either Islam or Christianity truly countenances the commission of atrocities or any form of inhumanity. Nominal adherents of both creeds may indeed do such things, but this is to their personal discredit, and not to that of the religions whose names they have, in effect, hijacked for their own purposes.'”
I'm hoping for more of this kind of thoughtful comment. Thanks, Rosie.
