(Vatican Radio) The Islamic-Catholic Liaison Committee held its 19th Meeting in Rome, on June 18th and 19th
The theme of the meeting was ‘Believers confronting materialism and secularism in society’ and at the conclusion of the meeting the Catholic and Muslim delegations agreed upon the following six points:
5) We strongly condemn in particular what is happening in Syria: killing of many innocent persons, aggression against the sacred character of human life and against the dignity of persons; therefore we urge the Regional and International Organizations to do what is possible to stop the bloodshed, according to International Law.
It would seem that a theology, such as Islam, that posits that God wills evil; slaughter of non-believers; arbitrarily can change essential moral principles on a whim; considers women to be inferior to men; hates all non-holders of said theology is more of distortion of God, and would render any honest ecumenical dialogue impossible. A distorted belief in God can be just as bad as atheism in its logical conclusions and practice.
