Prague, (RFE/RL) -- During his long papacy, Pope John Paul II has done much to further understanding between the major religions.He has made history by being the first head of the Roman Catholic Church to pray in a mosque, and he has sought to heal the ancient wounds between Christians and Jews.
I have said that we need to compromise as we have different religions and the kids are half of me and half of him.
I cannot see myself changing my mind and the thought of them being muslims does not sit well with me, because firstly I dont know so much about islam apart from them praying 5 times a day, ramadan, women covering their head, the big division between men and women e.g. Admin says: Alex, Can milk and yogurt mix and maintain their identity?
But in spite of the general feelings of goodwill towards other religions that the Holy See has sought to generate since the groundbreaking Second Vatican Council in the 1960s, there is still concern about interfaith marriages.
This was illustrated by a document issued by the Vatican on 14 May on the subject of world migration.
In it, the head of the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Refugees, Cardinal Stephen Fumio Hamao, warns women in traditionally Catholic countries about the risks of marrying Muslim men.
