It is like preaching to the converted – Vatican/Muslim
In an attempt to bring greater understanding between Muslim and Christian faiths, the Vatican has announced a new forum, the first meeting of which will be in November this year. It is hoped The Catholic-Muslim Forum, as it will be called, will meet on a regular basis at the official level to improve the tempestuous relationships that can on occasion arise. While welcoming the concept of holding such meetings, it must be said that it is somewhat akin preaching to the converted. Those who will be attending the forums will be learned scholars from among the Muslim and Christian faiths who, as monotheists, already have much in common.
