Commentary and Endorsement by The
In the past few years, a new danger to
the Catholic Church has risen:
the United Religions Initiative (URI).
Founded by the Episcopal Bishop of
California, William Swing, it is an attempt to organize all the world's
religions into a single global entity. And while it claims to respect
the autonomy of its members, many URI leaders portray traditional
Christians as intolerant "fundamentalists," and have expressed a desire

which society then gladly holds up as humanistic forms of Christianity,
as opposed to the alleged fundamentalism of those who don't want to be
so streamlined. The danger of a dictatorship of opinion is
growing, and anyone who doesn't share the prevailing opinion is
excluded, so that even good people no longer dare to stand by such
nonconformists. Any future anti-Christian dictatorship would
probably be much more subtle than anything we have known until
now. It will appear to be friendly to religion, but on the
condition that its own models of behavior and thinking not be called
