Thursday Morning Coffee

>>Vatican – The Vatican will create an interfaith forum with Muslim leaders and scholars, intended to ease relations between the religions. The first of which, “Love of God, Love of Neighbor,” will be held in Rome in November and will likely be attended by the Pope. Relations between leadership of the two religions have been hindered since the Pope quoted a Bizantine emperor in a 2006 speech as saying that Islam was “evil and inhuman.” He later expressed regret that his remarks had been taken out of context but never apologized.
