Religion and War Don’t Mix

ASTANA, Kazakhstan (CNS): Pope John Paul has pleaded for peace and condemned the use of religion to justify violence.

From Central Asia, a region where the United States and Islamic militants appeared headed for confrontation last week, he begged God to prevent war and condemned acts of terrorism carried out in the name of religion.

Visiting the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan from September 22-25, the Pope reached out to the Muslim majority and asked them to join Christians in building a ‘civilisation of love’ that rejects violence and hatred.

With apprehension growing over possible armed conflict in the wake of terrorist attacks in the United States, the Pope told his audience in Kazakhstan: ‘I beg God to keep the world in peace’.
