World’s Religions

The Parliament of the World’s Religions is to be held in Melbourne, Dec 3-9, 2009. Saltshakers said they are concerned at this sort of interfaith event as they tend to create a ‘level playing field’ for all religions. Christians who proclaim the uniqueness and superiority of Jesus Christ are sidelined as being intolerant or unloving. For more from Saltshakers: http://saltshakers.org.au/html/P/578/B/0
