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.

What’s wrong with seeking peaceful co-existence?  Jesus says, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” Paul says, “If possible, so far as it depends upon you, live peaceably with all” (Romans 12:18).

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

 

 

"Yes. Because God *damns* lies that inflict cruelty on parents who have lost their children ..."

"Lies, especially lies that inflict cruelty on parents who have lost their children to murder, ..."

"No. I nowhere ask God to damn a human being. You are either a liar ..."
