A new, global effort to eradicate the Islamic faith has taken shape, with the world-leading World Council of Churches (WCC) pledging to help develop a new, universal standard for religious diversity.
The World Council’s Global Agenda for Religious Diversity includes a pledge to bring together religious leaders from around the world to create a set of global guidelines for religious identity and diversity.
In addition, the organization has committed to establishing a new global database of religious diversity, in which “all countries and territories will be identified, including countries with a large Muslim population, countries with large Christian populations, and countries with mixed religious and cultural populations.”
It’s a new approach to religious diversity that will have the support of some of the world.
But it also comes amid a wave of violence in Muslim-majority countries around the globe.
In Pakistan, a suicide bomber killed more than 50 people in a deadly attack on a religious festival.
In the United States, where the number of Muslim-Americans is rising at an alarming rate, President Donald Trump has repeatedly warned against the spread of Islamophobia and has pushed to deport millions of immigrants who were born in the United State.
Trump also has expressed his disdain for Muslim-American groups, calling them “the enemy of the people.”
But while the president has also criticized Muslim countries for their treatment of minorities, he has largely kept his distance from the religious leaders and leaders of the Muslim world.
In an op-ed in the New York Times, WCC President Richard G. Land wrote, “The stakes are high, but the stakes are so high that even the most cynical among us can see the benefits of this effort.
The more people learn and appreciate the diversity of their faiths, the less they will have to fear for their lives.
They will know that they can live in peace and security in the world without having to be afraid of being killed for practicing their faith.”
The new efforts to combat religious extremism and violence have come as the United Nations’ Human Rights Council prepares to vote on whether to adopt a new version of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The council will decide whether the charter, which sets out the universal rights of everyone, will continue to be ratified in the future.
The WCC’s new initiative was announced on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday.
It was first announced in January, when the council approved a resolution calling on states to ensure that religious leaders are treated equally under the Universal Code of Human Relations.
This new effort will focus on the new Universal Code’s protection of religious freedom and the rights of individuals.
In a statement, Wachenfeld said the new guidelines would promote the “unified, inclusive and inclusive human rights charter.”
The WCC has been pushing the charter for years.
The new guidelines include language that recognizes the right of religion to freedom of belief, and that calls for the “right of conscience and religion to be respected by all, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, language, language preference, ethnicity, language ability or political affiliation.”
“This universal declaration of human rights, which has been a global mandate for so long, should be a benchmark for all of us,” Land said.
“It is now time for our leaders to work together to bring it to fruition and the world will have a better understanding of how our shared humanity is being built.”
In a separate statement, the WCC said the guidelines were the result of “a concerted global effort” that includes all religions, faith communities and communities of faith.
“We are now working with our allies in the global community to develop a universal standard, the Universal Covenant on Religious Freedom, which will help all people to live and worship in peace,” the Wacenfeld statement said.
