WASHINGTON (CNS) The declaration signed by Pope Francis and Sheik Ahmad el-Tayeb, the grand imam of al-Azhar, during the popes trip to the United Arab Emirates is a clarion call for robust dialogue that leads to peace, said the Catholic chairman of the National Catholic-Muslim Dialogue and the chairman of the U.S. bishops Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs.

What does the pope expect from a religion that explicitly directs followers to lie to non believers?
Ratzinger was the lasts and current pope in my eyes.
Pius XII was the greatest pope of the past century. Vatican 2 destroyed the church.
Has he even read the Bible?
Many of his proclamations make me wonder...
Absolutely disgusting. Sickening.
They are forming the one world religion that revelations talks about.
Am I the only one not surprised?
At times I want, like Muslims, to have secular laws against blasphemy, against Christianity, for at times, blasphemy is what I believe we hear from certain “Christian” religious and non-religious leaders.
