WASHINGTON—Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), reacted to the September 11 death of U.S. ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens and members of the embassy staff.
"Yesterday's events in Libya and Egypt point to what is at stake. We need to be respectful of other religious traditions at the same time that we unequivocally proclaim that violence in the name of religion is wrong," said Cardinal Dolan.
Cardinal Dolan prayed especially for the diplomatic community and their sensitive work toward world peace. Cardinal Dolan was slated to address the overall question of religious liberty as part of his opening address of the symposium International Religious Freedom: An Imperative for Peace and the Common Good, co-sponsored by USCCB, Catholic Relief Services (CRS), and CUA's Institute for Policy Research and Catholic Studies.
The full text of Cardinal Dolan's address, other addresses, speaker bios and video of that event will be available at: http://iprcua.com/2012/09/12/international-religious-liberty/
