Ethical Monotheism

Ethical monotheism, the concept that all five Abrahamic religions believe in one God who provides the guidelines for human morality, serves as the pillar for this upcoming project. Bridges is working with potential partners to collaborate on programs to counter extremist religious rhetoric. Imams in selected predominately Muslim African countries have used this approach to discourage youth from joining extremist organizations and to better understand Islam. Bridges seeks to build from their best practices, while also encouraging relationships between Christians and Muslims to build mutual understanding and create more inclusive societies.
