Bishops to discuss anti-Semitism

http://zionism-israel.com/israel_news/2007/04/bishops-to-discuss-anti-semitism.html

A Vatican summit of Roman Catholic Bishops about use of scripture will include a discussion of anti-Semitism:
 
An entire section of a preparatory document released by the Vatican on Friday is devoted to the Church's relationship with Jews, noting the close associations of the two in faith and calling for efforts to overcome every form of anti-Semitism.
 
 
The 60-page document, which was approved by Pope Benedict XVI, outlines the suggested topics and includes a questionnaire to be answered by local bishops.
 
After asking if priority is given to dialogue with the Jews, the questionnaire calls on bishops to investigate the use of biblical texts to ferment attitudes of anti-Semitism.
 
"Much has already been done, but everything must be done to dispel every shadow, the synod's general-secretary," Bishop Nikola Eterovic, said during a news conference to present the agenda for the October 2008 meeting.
 
...
 
The general theme of the meeting is an examination of the way scripture is studied and taught in the Church, and how the word of God can be influential in contemporary society.
 
Will Mel Gibson's Passion film come up for discussion? The report states:  
 
In particular, while the document encourages individual and group study of the Bible, it warns against the dangers of an arbitrary or literal interpretation of the Scriptures, which it says could lead to fundamentalism.
Or, "You don't know what it means until we tell you what it means, and we haven't decided yet."
