Pope invites Muslim leaders to find common ground
Pope Benedict invited Muslim leaders to discuss their request to find a common ground between the two religions in a letter signed by 138 Muslim religious authorities, according to the Guardian.
In the letter, Muslim leaders warned that the ‚Äúsurvival of the world could be at stake‚Ä? if the two religions failed.
In the Pope‚Äôs response, he said that atheism had ‚Äúled to the greatest forms of cruelty and violations of justice,‚Ä? and proposed a working group including both Muslim leaders and Vatican officials.
