Religious Liberty Experts call for "Responsible Dissemination of Religion or Belief"
Posted August 20, 2009
Madrid, Spain ... Religious liberty experts are calling for a "responsible dissemination of religion or belief" by members of religious communities. A 14-point statement of "Guiding Principles" was adopted by a 25-member Board of Experts of the International Religious Liberty Association (IRLA) meeting in Madrid in late January. The document challenges religious communities around the world to recognize the "increasing reality of religious pluralism" and emphasizes the urgent need to improve the way religious convictions are shared. It calls for an increased sensitivity to the history, convictions, way of life and culture of individuals targeted for missionary activity.
