The head of the Chaldean Catholic Church, an Eastern Catholic church in full communion with the Holy See, said that it should be a crime to incite violence against those who profess other religions.
Patriarch Louis Raphaël I Sako said that the “toxins of hatred” should be removed from school curricula in a post-ISIS Iraq.
He also welcomed “the civilized and ethical stance of the United Arab
Emirates in passing a law to criminalize and to hold accountable all
religious discourses that intimidate coexistence as well as fuel and sow
sedition among people.”
Iraq, a nation of 38.1 million, is 99% Muslim.
