Hailed as a global first, a Jewish synagogue and an Episcopal church are co-locating their new worship facilities on a plot of land with a Mosque. They call it the "Tri-Faith Initiative," and the project has become the darling of the progressive wings of Christianity and Judaism.
The Jewish and Christian participants' motivations are easily discerned by reading their rather facile statements regarding the project. Standard left-progressive boilerplate about "inclusiveness and social justice" abounds.
Like the Episcopalians, Reform Jews routinely place progressive politics and social justice above doctrine, making them ideal partners for a project like this. From their statements, one gets the impression that this sort of interfaith cooperation is naughtily intoxicating.
