Respect for the faith of others: Patriarch Gregorios condemns a film defamatory to Islam


As Patriarch of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church and Head of the Assembly of the Catholic Hierarchy in Syria, we denounce the disgraceful film produced by some inhumane faction whose objective is to sow discord and animosity in society.

We also condemn the violent and uncivilised reaction of certain groups, which cannot claim to be defending Islam as they are far removed from the Muslim way of thinking, since the best way of defending Islam is to live and behave according to Islamic values. 

We call everyone to love, mutual respect, encounter and dialogue, and to live according to their holy faith in order to construct a better world, a world civilised by faith, hope and love.

Gregorios III (Laham) Patriarch of Antioch and All the East
Of Alexandria and of Jerusalem
