At the Pope’s recent visit to Abu Dhabi, he and the Muslim Grand Imam of al-Azhar signed a document entitled “A Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together.” Among other things, it said this:
The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept.
Cdl. Burke explains it away: Pope’s declaration saying God wills ‘diversity of religions’ is ‘not correct’
