In theory, I agree with Archbishop Sheen that it should be at least possible
to lead Moslems out of their wicked heresy by emphasising the singular importance of Our Lady even in the Koran.
But, the position of a Christian missionary in an Islamic country is very perilous -- almost as dangerous as it was to be a Jesuit in Elizabethan England. Unless the radical governments, such as Saudi Arabia's, are compelled to renounce Sharia, the prospect of conversion through preaching and disputation seems very remote.
There will never be any widespread conversion from Islam to Christianity for as long as the government can impose a death sentence for "apostasy." And, in the case of Saudi Arabia, that self-same government has the unquestioning support of the U.S. There is something brutally consistent that the U.S., where it is illegal to pray on public property, supports a regime that imposes a death penalty for conversion to Christianity.
And bin Laden calls us "Crusaders." It is to laugh.
I'd like to be on that list, if you wouldn't mind.

Thanks for the ping. As an Iranian woman pointed out to an American journalist, Mary wore hajeb. An excellent contribution, proud2bRC.
In all humility -- I ask -- please add me to your list, sir.
When I see that the posts will be Catholic hate drawing or conflicting, divisive and ill suited to our Faith airing differences in Catholic "views"-- I will just read the article.
