Jesus, Muhammad and the Pope


When there is new conflict, Americans together will do what the great spirituals masters of each religion and tradition have taught us, for example what Jesus (pbuh) and Muhammad (pbuh) would have done.

Jesus taught us to turn the other cheek – simply meaning, do not aggravate the conflict by violence or repulsive words, and Muhammad showed us a way to mitigate conflicts and nurture goodwill, so all of us can live without apprehension and fear of the other in a given society – a hallmark of civil societies that both these men taught. Thanks to Pope Francis for re-emphasizing the gospel teaching that may become the new norm of religion; mercy.

In one sentence, please share about your (or your religion/tradition’s) take on building civil societies where we can learn to respect the otherness of others and accept the God given uniqueness of each one of us.
