Freedom of Faith and Discerning Dialogue
In an uncharacteristic move, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has advocated and in fact urged for leaders of the three largest faiths in the world, Christianity, Judaism and Islam, to come together and work towards a peace among the religions in the region. In a scene straight from the middle ages, and unfortunately still true today, these three monotheistic faiths are still, as they have always been, at war of a sort, with one another in the region. The region, the area of the holiest sites for all three faiths, has an amazing amount of significance for each of the three faiths.
While the specifics of the “call to action”, remain unclear, the fact that King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has taken the step towards a conference with everyone taking an equal role, and calling out the fact that there are many similarities in the three faiths, bodes well for future relations. Hopefully, sooner rather than later, we will be able to live amongst one another without warring factions disturbing the peace, and how proud would we all be if one of our beloved Monarchs were to be the catalyst for a lasting peace?Filed under Saudi Arabia
