    Glory Be and Hallelujah!! What a Glorious coming together in Peace, Respect, Dignity for All! What a Great sign/signal to our respective political leaders and hopefully to clergy across our war-mongering country! Yes to Stand Up/Speak Out(at the pulpit) for all the Voiceless, Vulnerable, Oppressed–and we do not have to only look at Aleppo, Gaza, Faluja/Kirkuk… but here in our own country–Hundreds of Thousands families homeless and at poverty levels. And Native Americans under seige for protection of their own lands/rights. Pray that this Gathering will indeed provide critical progress for All!

    How can leaders of Christian and Muslim denominations meet to “discuss respect for human dignity” in a country which ignores the human rights of its most persecuted minority, the Baha’is? These peace-loving people are thrown in jail for no other reason than their religious beliefs. Will this gathering have the courage to address this issue under the umbrella of respect for human dignity or will it be ignored as it has been for many years?
