Multifaith Issues From Other Blogs - Update No. 3

  • Christian funds for Puri shrine, Soumyajit Pattnaik, Bhubaneswar, Hindustan Times May 17, 2006
    Christians are barred from entering the Jagannath temple at Puri but a Geneva-based Christian lawyer has donated nearly $400,000 (Rs 1.78 crore) to the shrine — the amount is more than the total donation received last year.

  • "Traditional British Values," by Ethnocentrist, May 15, 2006
    the Education Minister, Bill Rammell, wants to start teaching British youth "traditional British values".
    The UK is a strong multicultural and multifaith society, but to prosper it must focus on shared "core values". These include the tradition of free speech; the contested view that Britain was founded on freedom, democracy and liberty; and the contribution of different communities to building a modern, successful country.

  • Muslims rage against The Da Vinci Code REUTERS May 15, 2006

  • Bible banned in Australian hospitals, by JR, 14 May 2006
    Queensland Multi Faith Health Care Council deputy chairman John Chalmers, who is also in charge of hospital chaplaincies for the Catholic Church in Brisbane, said he was saddened by the ban. "This is still a predominantly Christian country but unfortunately some people think the multifaith dialogue means that we don't mention Jesus," he said. "Putting a Bible in a drawer is not a matter of imposing it on other faiths. The patient doesn't have to take it out if they don't want to. "I think it is more offensive to present a bland environment with no Bibles."
    Islamic Council of Queensland president Abdul Jalal said the ban was unnecessary. "It is ridiculous to think that we might be offended by seeing a Bible in a drawer - it is an example of multiculturalism gone mad," he said. "Part of being a Muslim is that you have to be accepting of all religious texts."
