Hi Joanna,

"Without considering the definitional problem and the concept of 
denigration, the authors of this declaration appear to want to entirely 
eliminate critical thinking about various religions, or any religion, or 
religion in general."

Dan mentioned using defamation, "saying things that are not true" about 
a religion, but I think religions have more reason to fear that things 
that are true about them will be said. Yes, it's probably critical 
thinking that's under attack here. The best solution would be that the 
Third Global Conference on World's Religions After 9/11 withdraw their 
statement and resolutions and say they are really sorry.
