A recent Commonweal article by Fr. Francis X. Clooney, SJ on interreligious dialogue and mean-old-bruske Pope Benedict contained the following:
While few sensible Christians would be so brusque today, the question of the meaning of Islam for Christians is still with us, particularly if (by tradition, habit, or conviction) many Christian leaders avoid speaking of the Qur’an as revelation or of Mohammed as a true prophet.
Now I really don’t have much expectation for much of anything written in Commonweal, but this sentence makes my jaw drop to shoe level. Whattaya know Christian leaders don’t refer to a false prophet and his false revelations as being real – you learn something everyday.
Luckily I don’t have to spend the time to rip up this article because the master Dale Price already took to it. Whoever came up with the pen is mightier than the sword had Dale in mind. The rest of the article is also pretty mind-numbing.
