Message to motorists: watch your driving and your mouth, Nicole Winfield, Associated Press

Here are the "Drivers' Ten Commandments" as listed by the Vatican's Office for Mirgrants and Itinerant People:

1. You shall not kill.
2. The road shall be for you a means of communion between people and not of mortal harm.
3. Courtesy, uprightness and prudence will help you deal with unforeseen events.
4. Be charitable and help your neighbour in need, especially victims of accidents.
5. Cars shall not be for you an expression of power and domination, and an occasion of sin.
6. Charitably convince the young and not so young not to drive when they are not in a fitting condition to do so.
7. Support the families of accident victims.
8. Bring guilty motorists and their victims together, at the appropriate time, so that they can undergo the liberating experience of forgiveness.
9. On the road, protect the more vulnerable party.
10. Feel responsible toward others. source read also: Vatican issues '10 Commandments' for good motorists

  • Interfaith Leaders Meet In Chicago Around the Issue of Labor Justice and Immigration
    WASHINGTON, DC - June, 19, 2007 (MASNET) The Interfaith Worker Justice (IWJ) held its 2007 national conference on the campus of North Park University in Chicago. This year's theme focused on welcoming, struggling, and organizing for worker's justice. It highlighted the opportunities and challenges that people of faith have in America to make a difference in the life of working people.
    The conference also focused on the challenges for working people in an American climate that has become increasingly xenophobic and anti immigrant. The Muslim American Society (MAS) was represented at the conference by its executive director, Mahdi Bray, who is also a board member of IWJ. At the conference, Bray served as a workshop leader, moderator, and speaker. Visit the Website: Interfaith Worker Justice

  • Don't scapegoat multiculturalism, Haroon Siddiqui @ The Toronto Star, Jun 10, 2007
    "Immigration and multiculturalism are linked. One serves as a lightning rod for the other. Unease with either, or both, rises in times of economic and social insecurity."
    "Too often these debates have been initiated by right-wing commentators as thinly disguised strategies for attacking immigrants, particularly Muslims, often accompanied by apocalyptic predictions about how Canada's experiment in multiculturalism is on the verge of collapse."
    It isn't.
    On the contrary, Wilfrid Laurier's dream of Canada as a Gothic cathedral is now an entrenched reality:
    "I want the marble to remain the marble, the granite to remain the granite, the oak to remain the oak – and out of all these elements I would build a nation great among the nations of the world."
