WACC Condemns Violence as Non-communication

“WACC’s General Secretary, Karin Achtelstetter, has sent a letter of condolence to WACC members in Norway. In it she said, “As the days pass and the real and full horror of what happened becomes clearer, WACC members around the world as well as WACC staff will continue to have you and the Norwegian people in their thoughts and prayers.”

The letter emphasized that WACC stands for communication that builds understanding, greater awareness of other people and their beliefs, sensitivity to other cultures and, above all, tolerance for alternatives opinions and worldviews. The bombing and killings witnessed in Oslo are forms of non-communication, an expression not just of intolerance and hatred, but an extreme inability to communicate.” Read the rest of the article here.
