Is Dialogue Possible with Muslims?

Vatican official says no. Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran is the president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, and has made lots of Muslims upset.

It is unfortunate. He should have been in my World Religions Class Monday night. We had a great dialogue with three Muslims. I had invited a former student of mine; one of my current students invited two more, one of whom is a faculty member. We had two Sunnis and one Shia, from Pakistan, Morocco, and Iran. It was a fascinating and cordial discussion, in which all learned.

If a small group of folks in SE Texas can have a positive dialogue, surely the Vatican, with all the scholarly resources at its disposal, can figure something out.
