Posted on 03/20/2012 7:02:33 AM PDT by marshmallow
Speaking with Al Jazeera, the president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue lamented mutual ignorance between Christians and Muslims.
We succeeded in avoiding the clash of civilizations; let us avoid a clash of ignorance, said Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran. In Europe, he stated, there is a fear of Islam, but it is due to ignorance.
If you speak to right-wing groups, you realize that they have never opened a Quran and never met a Muslim., he continued. There needs to be a big effort to educate, to inform them because most of the problems are coming from misinterpretation or ignorance.
Cardinal Tauran also criticized the attitudes of some Muslims towards Christians.

He’ll be the first one beheaded when Al Qaeda shows up in St. Peter’s square headed for the Vatican Museum.
Unfortunately, the Vatican bureaucracy always seems to be full of such types: People who endorse left-wing social engineering and Gaia-worship, people who (disastrously) allowed the growth of a homosexual culture at some seminaries, and bubbleheads regarding Islam like this person.
I guarantee I’ve read more of the Koran than this person.
THAT is one lesson I would LOVE to hear!
The military primarily leans....? Oh yeah, to the right. We've been fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for 10 years now.
The primary religon in those countries is....? Oh yeah, Islam. That would make those people.....? Oh yeah....muslim.
Cardinal Tauran - you are a Grade-A dips4#t and messenger of Satan.
I am posting this comment from an ignorant position and would like some clarification if possible. One of the reasons I am asking is, I belong to a rather large fraternity of men who support and maintain a very important and loving activity for children. The Quaran is part of the ceremony along with the Bible and Torah. My question is, in your interpretation of the Quaran and also the same applies to other interpretations that I have seen, all the words are translated to English except Allah. Isn’t that a reference to God?? Or is it only their God who is Muslim only? I appreciated your posting and brings my thoughts to mind.
Hey, cardinal, tell this to the Christians tormented or killed every day by your beloved moozlums. cardinal...you are a dhimmi fool.
Not a chance. They would never behead a convert that formally held such a high office as a Christian.....
From asssessing the IQs of left-wingers on TV and whom I have met, I can safely say that most left-wingers have never opened a Koran nor have never met a Muslim, either.
According to the good Cardinal, the neanderthals in the left-wing groups like Acorn, the Wall Street Occupiers, the union-thugs leaders, the perpetual welfare class, the nitwit academics, the professional pundit poobahs and the Obama cultists are the true intelligencia that "gets it" about Islam...... while those on the Right are bigoted know-nothings who are not as sophisticated and informed as the Left.
This Prince of the Church needs some serious prayers as he seems to morph into a frog at times.
I have a question for the Cardinal.
Were Muhammad’s visions, that led to the koran, miracles certified by the Church?
If not why not? (There are only a few options, such as - they were not supernatural, or they were supernatural, but not from God, or his angels and saints.)
None of the choices bode well for Islam being a true religion based on the Jewish and Christian God.
"(126) But the plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator. In the first place amongst these there are the Mohammedans, who, professing to hold the faith of Abraham, along with us adore the one and merciful God, who on the last day will judge mankind. - >> From Vatican 2 document "Lumen Gentium""
Uh huh. Anyone got a picture of the Trade Center at about 10 am on 9/11/01?
He’s luke-warm anyway.
Man this douche bag should only be allowed to speak in a vomitorium.
His ignorance of REAL WORLD mudslimes is galactic.
World governments have allowed this cancer on humanity to spread like a pandemic. Eventually it will come down to ordinary citizens doing what government should have done. Mosques need to be treated like WMD factories.
You do not let rabid dogs reproduce and these 6th century sand monkeys with delusions of getting oral sex from dromedary lips, are much worse than rabid dogs.
Cardinal Tauran has nothing to worry about — here in America we give these murderous cultists full constitutional protection.
Methinks this Cardinal could use a long Fireside Chat with Rep. Allen West.
The Joe Biden of the Vatican.
The Joe Biden of the Vatican.
“....the Mohammedans, who, professing to hold the faith of Abraham, along with us adore the one and merciful God....”
Hmmm, the Blessed Trinity is now equated with allah?
And Jesus is merely another prophet but inferior to Mohammed?
