Catholics and Muslims Together

Eboo Patel, the co-founder of the Interfaith Youth Core, talks with Kerry Weber, from America Magazine, about his campaign to foster interfaith dialogue among young people, and why Catholic campuses are uniquely suited to host these conversations. He talks of helping female students take leadership positions, inspire others and connect to their faith at the same time.

His campaign designs a framework for helping students constantly refer back to their traditions. To know more about his campaign and ideas, you should listen to the podcast attached below.

In part two of his interview, Eboo Patel besets the anti-Islamic prejudice at the heart of the controversy surrounding the so-called “Ground Zero” mosque.

Eboo Patel, who is an American Muslim of Indian heritage, has been a part of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.
