Is Interfaith Dialogue Possible?

Today Pope Benedict XVI (or B16 as I like to call him) wrote a letter that seems to question interfaith dialogue.

The pope’s letter said that “an inter-religious dialogue in the strict sense of the word is not possible.” It went on to say that “a true dialogue is not possible without putting one’s faith in parentheses.” (See the NY Times article here)

Now, I ask you. Do you think that inter-religious or interfatih dialogue is possible without “putting one’s faith in parentheses”?

Should we even attempt interfatih dialogue?

I certainly think so, but what you think? Why?
