Muslim Rage and Christian Arrogance:
A Time for Reason, Repentance and Dialogue

As people of faith Christians should not be afraid to enquire into the beliefs of people of other faiths. Not to do so is to admit that one is very smug in the parochialism of one’s faith and there is nothing else that one has to learn. The perception in a large section of the Christian community seems to be that if Christianity has said all that needs to be said about God, there is no need to agitate one’s mind about those who are damned and headed for hell in a basket.

This Christian fundamentalism is of course a perversion of the teachings of Christ. If “nine-eleven” has taught us anything then surely it is that we either live together in harmony as a people or we perish apart in hatred of each other. No one should have any doubt what the choice of a decent civilization should be, especially one built upon the foundations of the Judeo-Christian ethic of love.
