Interfaith dialogue is the widespread and vocal practice of religious pluralism. The existence of religious pluralism depends on the existence of freedom of religion. Religious plurality is the outcome of religious practice and interfaith dialogue. Freedom of religion encompasses all religions acting within the law in a particular region, whether or not an individual religion accepts the other religions as legitimate.
Christians have traditionally argued that religious pluralism is an invalid or self-contradictory concept. Religious pluralism to the extreme may seem to claim that all religions are equally true. Christians claim that all religions can never be equally true, and that it is logically and theologically impossible.
The world doesn’t want the black epoch of [former president George Bush] to be repeated. If some people attempt to repeat that experience… they should know they’ll confront a much worse destiny than Bush’s.”
But the fact is that interfaith dialogue or religious pluralism is not about probing into who is right or wrong. It’s all about sitting down together to agree that there are lot of facts to disagree about, but that there are also common facts to discuss together, to promote justice and peace. There is a common message of love to beat the language of hatred.
