If, in the name of an incorrect interpretation of freedom of expression, member states were to allow the religious sentiments of individuals or entire communities to be offended, the same states would not only be unable to effectively contribute to dialogue among different religions, cultures and ethnic groups, but they would also risk prejudicing it. This dialogue has to be based upon knowledge and respect.Hmm. I don't know. Yes, it would be nice if the European (and Western) media in general let up on Christianity. However, and perhaps my secular "roots" are showing here, I appreciate some of the criticism that the media direct at religion in general. Don't want (or need) a self-censorship that would overlook the faults of religious leaders (or followers!) for fear of offending!
Here's the press release from the OSCE about the conference.
