Religious intolerance debated in Salisbury
Comment Email Print
¬† The Imam of Brighton mosque, a Rabbi and a Catholic Archbishop will be among the speakers at a conference entitled 'Generosity and imagination' to be held in October at Sarum College, in Salisbury's Cathedral Close. "Today's headlines seem to be full of religious intolerance, from the issue of headscarves in French schools to the whole 'war on terror' scenario in which we all live" said Sarum's Principal Tim Macquiban. "Our conference will look at the new, expanded Europe which encompasses more religious diversity than ever, and will deal with issues such as 'Can we create a vision for the new Europe that will enhance human dignity, justice and concern for others? Are the newest members of the EU getting a fair deal, and what will they contribute?'" "Issues such as these affect all our lives. This is a unique event in that it offers the opportunity to hear the debate from all different perspectives." Dr Abduljalil Sajid, Archbishop Jozef Zycinski of Poland and Rabbi Jonathan Magonet will be joined by other speakers including Sir Stephen Wall, former European adviser to the Prime Minister, and writer and broadcaster Ziauddin Sardar. The conference is being run in conjunction with the Wyndham place Charlemagne Trust. Conference dates are 29 ≠ 30 October.
