Taking on the issue of religious prejudice, the National Muslim and Catholic Dialogue met for the third time at University of St. Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary March 6-8.
Ten scholars – five Christians and five Muslims – recently met for an interreligious dialogue at Catholic University of America. Dr. Rita George-Tvrtković, the author of an upcoming book on Mary in Christianity and Islam, says if dialogue partners have developed trust and friendship over time, “they might be ready at some point to deal with their differences.”
In a new Pew survey, nearly half of U.S. Muslims say they have faced some discrimination in the last year, such as being treated with distrust, threatened or called an offensive name. The Pew survey is its third on American Muslims since 2007, and its first since Trump took office in January.
