Walid meets with Cardinal Maida of Archdiocese of Detroit regarding Pope Benedict XVI's statements
Today at the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn, Michigan hosted Imam Sayyid Hassan Al-Qazwini, Muslim leaders met with Cardinal Maida and other top staff of the Archdiocese of Detroit to discuss the recent comments of Pope Benedict XVI that spark disappointment to violence throughout the Muslim world.
The major concern that was presented to the Cardinal from this vantage point is that the Pope's statements have embolden some neo-conservatives, both secular and evangelicals, to promote their concept of the "clash of civilizations." The Cardinal agreed that one of the major challenges both Catholics and Muslims have is the promotion of both dialogue and religious values, which the "clash of civilization" proponents, primarily secularists, are opposed to.
The Cardinal also was informed of the Council on American-Islamic Relations' (CAIR) efforts to raise funds to help repaired the churches that were damaged in the West Bank by radicals in response to the Pope's comments.
Both parties expressed that they are commented to Catholic-Muslim dialogue including discussing matters of deeper significance including the rise of secularism, support for religious schools and protecting affirmative action in America.
