Interfaith Dialogue: Speaking with One Another


As a chaplain in a third level setting I see the value of religious belief and practice in the lives of many students. The day is gone when a third level college can disregard the role of faith in the personal and social well-being of its student population. In short, it is time for Ireland to get over its black and white attitude to religious belief and begin to ask how its institutions can support a more diverse, pluralist, and varied population. When diversity and equality are spoken about today one is generally presumed to refer to sexual diversity and sexual equality. Religious diversity and religious equality do not receive the same attention or energy.
