Cardinal Francis George on Tuesday night urged Muslims and Christians to educate young people to be more tolerant of each other's religions.

George spoke before a group of more than 200 at the ninth annual Catholic-Muslim Unity Ramadan Dinner, which was held at the Islamic Society of the Northwest Suburbs in Rolling Meadows.

Peace and tolerance should be taught to young Muslims and Christians so they can learn to listen to each other, he said.

"Where we come together not to speak about someone else, but to listen to someone speak about himself or herself from the viewpoint of their own faith," George said.
