May be we need a "UNICORE" to help muslums reform
Submitted by John Bedrossian (United States), Jan 20, 2006 at 20:32This is the right time and not beyond the realm of possiblities for the United Nations to institute a subcommitte ( UNICORE) to discuss worldwide issues with bad theologies in certain religions and make recommendations to the appropriate institution of that religion for ways to re-interprete, amend and / or reform harmful and inhumane beliefs which have never or no longer contribute to the fair and peaceful co-existance of human beings here on earth.
UNICORE stands for : United Nations International Committee On Religious Ethics
I recommend TWELVE Major Members :
Three muslums : a sunni (from Al-Azhar), a shiite ( from Iran ) , and a sufi ( from Syria)
Three christians: a catholic priest ( Vatican ), an orthodox priest, and a protestant minister.
Three Jewish Rabbis : an orthodox, a conservative and a reformed rabbi
Three Professionals : Daniel Pipes, Dennis Prager, and Robert Spencer.
I also recommend TWELVE Minor (or observants or commentators) Members :
Three ex- muslums such as Mark A. Gabriel ( Former Egyptian Imam), Ergun Caner ( Turkish )
and Walid Shoebat ( Former PLO ).
Three Experts in islam such as Serge Trifkovic, Bat Ye'or, and Nabil Jabour.
Three Experts, one in Hinduism, one in Buddhism and one from the Bahai faith.
Three Experts, one representing the Voice of Martyrs, one from the Christian Middle eastern
minorities and one representing the south east asian minorities.
I believe that Their collaborative efforts and Unanimous Decisions ought to send with CLARITY the right signals to the Rank and File of any major religion to re-interprete and / or change the bad theological beliefs for the more humane, acceptable and respected ideology.
Your feedback will be greatly appreciated.
