We denounce the reprehensible defamation acts against any religion, anywhere in the world. We denounce the reprehensible anti- Islam film that denigrates one of the world’s major religions. This film is very offensive to Muslims throughout the world as well as to people of all faith communities. We firmly believe that violence is not the answer but constructive dialogue is what is required to bring tolerance and better understanding, and
we must redouble our efforts in this regard. We as people of nine faith traditions pray for peace, tolerance and understanding between all people of the world.
CCIU's mission is to promote public awareness, understanding about and respect for Connecticut's religious pluralism through an array of programs and initiatives. CCIU's principal focus is on educating youth and adults about the world's religions, the values they share in common, and their differences, and how they have contributed to our
respective world views and identities.
