Controversy brews ahead of Montreal conference on world religions
“…The Second Global Conference on World’s Religions After Sept. 11 is being organized by McGill University and the Universite de Montreal and organizer Arvind Sharma, a professor of comparative religion at McGill, says the goal is to debate how religions can contribute to peace in the world.
He is also hoping to have the participants adopt three resolutions, including one which says that violating the sanctity of the scripture of any religion amounts to violating the sanctity of all religions.
To Tarek Fatah, founder of the Canadian Muslim Congress, this is just a way of saying religions are above reproach and tacitly endorsing Sharia law, and he is furious the Dalai Lama would be asked to support that.”
Oh brother the Tony Blair “Faith Foundation” and the Brian Bronfman Family Foundation are listed as sponsors.
