Britain’s The Independent has a truly astonishing article on a Jewish day school in Birmingham where half the students are Muslim–and everyone gets along. It’s not about the kind of interfaith relationships we focus on, but it demonstrates the salutary effects that interfaith connections can have on people’s worldviews. We’re not naive enough to suggest that people of different faiths falling in love will have an impact on world conflict, but intimate encounters with other cultures and faiths–especially ones perceived to be in conflict–do make it a little less easy to villainize others.
