2) Interfaith dialogues are exclusionary
If you search for google images for interfaith dialogue, the great majority of pictures you find will be of men – men over the age of 40 to be more precise. Interfaith dialogues are a microcosm of many religious institutions: gerontocratic and lacking in women’s equal representation. Certainly interfaith dialogues are not the only spaces for high-level discussions which are exclusionary – such is the state of the world that this is the case in many political, economic and social spheres. But the fact that in interfaith dialogues religious leaders often assume the right to speak on behalf the victims of violence on the basis of freedom of religion or belief who are more frequently than not women, poor, young, on the fringes of society, is deeply problematic and disconcerting.
