Yes, but now that he has said this, will the future belong to Muskens? From Expatica, :
AMSTERDAM – Islam won’t dominate the future because it is too aggressive, Archbishop Martinus Muskens of Breda has claimed.
In the quarterly magazine of Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Roman
Catholic bishop writes: “I saw early on that there was a lot of aggression in there (Islam)”. Islam, he said, must contemplate on the violent aspects of its tradition.
Muskens lived in Indonesia for many years and studied Muslims closely.
“If this faith does not find an adequate answer to the question whether violence is part of its essence, this religion has little future.
Although stressing that contacts between Christians and Muslims are vital, the bishop feels that there is currently too much emphasis on Islam in the interfaith dialogue. “We are too obsessed by it,” Muskens
He would prefer to talk with Buddhists. Well, they may be more pleasant dinner companions, but is that really the work that must be done today?
