I'm learning more about religion and relationships right now, and in particular what I'm wondering about is: Will religions ever get together to make one whole religion for a better relationship among the people?. As I was reading in my Google Reader, a news item, "Other U.S.A Religion Leaders Meet..," caught my attention because the summary that was given made me interest in this news.
The quote I chose here is basically saying that four religious leaders met to discuss issues between Pakistan and Israel. In here you can read that they are concern about the relationship that they will have in the future due to this religious conflicts.
I think this is shocking because I never thought that different religious leaders would meet to discuss this type of issues. It makes me wonder about how they got together knowing that they have different beliefs and how they acted to each others comments.
