Vatikan-Islam aksen: Skolebøger må ikke fornærme nogen religion

The Islamic-Catholic Joint Committee for Interreligious Dialogue would like to see school textbooks revised in order to remove any offences to religions.

The committee is made up of members of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue and the Permanent Committee of al-Azhar for Dialogue between Monotheistic Religions.

In a document approved at the end of their latest meeting a few days ago and released today by the Vatican press office, they state that

“a culture of peace should permeate all aspects of life: religious training, education, interpersonal relations, and artistic expressions in their various forms.”

 “To this end”, it was specified, “school textbooks should be revised so that they do not contain material that could offend the religious sentiments of other believers, which may at times occur through the misleading presentation of dogmas, ethical visions, or historical reconstructions of other religions.”

An appeal is then made in the document to protect young people

“from the fanaticism of violence”.

An important role was attributed to the media

“in the promotion of positive relations between the faithful of different religions”.
