Frederick Clarkson of Talk To Action (Talk2Action.org) says of his Religious Dispatches interview with Anglican Bishop Andudu Adam Elnail: "Sudanese Anglican Bishop Andudu's articulation of the values of inter-faith respect and understanding is a model for how we can better contend with some of our own theocratic demagogues."
Anglican Bishop Andudu Adam Elnail, who is a leader in interfaith relations for his church in Sudan was in the U.S. when he and his fellow Anglican pastors were hunted and their cathedral burned on the northern province of South Kordofan. He believes if he had not been here, he might now be in a mass grave in Kadugli. As I learned in the course of our interview, he is an articulate exponent of the values of religious pluralism -- even in the face of a genocidal regime. He thinks that this may be part of why he was targeted. It seems that Arab Islamic theocrats from Khartoum find religious pluralism of the Nuban people of South Kordofan, threatening.
