Kudos to those attending, I see they were trying to focus on love and understanding between the faiths in the interests of harmony, While I’m an atheist I applaud people who try to build bridges but I wonder why the Muslim faith wasn’t represented? Oh wait a minute? I guess for one thing there would of had to have been a huge security presence.

 A quick look at the participants  suggests that only some Christians qualified;

The colloquium was organized by the Dicastery for Interreligious Dialogue, together with the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Thailand, two major Buddhist universities, a Buddhist monastic order, Bangkok’s Temple of the Reclining Buddha and a Thai foundation.

No indication of Protestant, or Eastern Orthodox participation. 🤭
