Peaceful co-existence

A reader writes:

Yesterday, at the meeting with various religious groups, Pope Francis, (if the translation is accurate) expressed a desire for peaceful co-exsistence among religions.  Since “co-exsistence” is my most hated bumpersticker, this has been worrying me ever since I read it.  No one seems to have noticed it either.  Did you?  I value you opinion on this.

My advice: Don’t measure the Church with a bumper sticker.
