Call off the Great Commission! Chicago monk Wayne Teasdale in U.S. Catholic, March 2003 (via the Chicago Reader):

Well, first of all, let me say, we do have the one true religion. But I don't think we should be broadcasting that. We may believe that, but I think the gospel compels us to have sensitivity to people of other traditions who have no desire to be Catholic or Christian. We have to find a different approach besides the evangelical approach, which just doesn't work. After all these centuries of missionary activity in Asia, only 2 percent of Asia is Christian.
