4) Faith leaders engaging in interfaith dialogue do not have a monopoly on religious authority, power or legitimacy.
Herein lies the dilemma: in order to champion peaceful co-existence, religious leaders beautifully quote parts of their religious texts that endorse peace and tolerance, but what about those religious passages that are inimical to full religious equality? Extremist groups equally deploy religious texts selectively to justify and promote their political ambitions to access power. Religious leaders engaging in inter-faith dialogue do not have a monopoly on the interpretation of texts, and ideology and political power play out in a far more slippery fashion than how religious text is understood or interpreted.
