I’ve said repeatedly, and for a very long time that “interfaith dialogue” involving Islam is a fool’s errand…
Any interfaith dialogue with Islamic leaders/propagandists involves never daring to say the truth about that ideology. Christian and Jewish faith leaders routinely end up regurgitating old mantras of solidarity and fellowship with Muslims (who actually are supremacists and who hold the non-Muslim with contempt) and never get to fully address the severe flaws in the ideology.
The present Catholic Pontiff is a complete dolt, the wrong man at the wrong time in world history to head that faith.

This is what interfaith dialogue leads to, at least for the Christian side: total capitulation, the relativization of the faith, and the holding of contradictory ideas. The fruit of the dialogue between Muslims and Catholics has not been the protection of Christians in Muslim countries, but a silence from the Catholic Church on this persecution. Bishops in the U.S. and Europe have now have been teaching for years that any discussion of such matters is “Islamophobic,” and will harm this wonderful dialogue that has actually no accomplishments to its name.
In 2013, Bishop Robert McManus of Worcester, Massachusetts canceled my scheduled address to a Catholic Men’s Conference and explained:
“Spencer’s talk about extreme, militant Islamists…might undercut the positive achievements that we Catholics have attained in our inter-religious dialogue with devout Muslims.”
So you see, even talk about “extreme, militant Islamists,” and Boko Haram and the Fulani herdsmen are quintessentially “extreme, militant Islamists,” is out of bounds, because of the dialogue.
