The Georgetown University’s Interfaith Gathering for Solidarity, Understanding, and Peace was held on December 16, 2015 to promote understanding through faith leaders’ reflections and through music and prayer.
Imam Talib Shareef, president of The Nation’s Mosque, Masjid Muhammad; Cardinal Donald Wuerl, archbishop of Washington; and Senior Rabbi M. Bruce Lustig of Washington Hebrew Congregation were among the attendees.
Vice President Joe Biden joined this gathering of Muslim, Catholic, Jewish and other religious leaders at Georgetown University. “I believe in faith,” Biden said, after lamenting what he called hate speech and phobia following the recent terrorist attacks. “I believe faith is a gift. It’s a gift that should be embraced, and it embodies not just what we believe, but it dictates what we must do.”
He said exploiting people’s fears is “unacceptable and counter-productive.”
