The ‘Courtyard of the Gentiles’, a Vatican initiative to promote dialogue with unbelievers opened a two day event in Paris on March 24th.
The initiative, according to one Cardinal, is inviting non-believers to:
Come on a voyage with believers through the desert, to encourage exploration of the ultimate questions.
Writing about the event in this week’s Irish Catholic, The editor, Garry O’Sullivan, took the opportunity to attack the (unchristian) greed and anger prevalent in Ireland, the plan (conspiracy) by the State to take over many religious schools and, for good measure, threw in the standard attack on atheist, Richard Dawkins.
In a comment sure to encourage dialogue with unbelievers he declared;
Secularism has no answers to the great questions of life; those who do (Catholics) should step forward with courage.
So, best of luck with that ‘voyage of exploration’.
