Charter for religious cooperation signed

PITTSBURGH -- Worshippers wearing a rainbow of saris, robes and yarmulkes filed into a hall at Carnegie Mellon University, clapping and singing in praise of the world's religions.

As drums beat, the 225 participants from six continents not only celebrated their own faith, but reached out to other believers in the signing of the United Religions Initiative Charter calling for religious cooperation. It includes prohibitions on aggressive recruitment.

Religious representatives from more than a dozen faiths said they were trying to establish a global group that could speak for the religions of the world -- a faith-based United Nations.

Worldwide, the group has formed 75 ''cooperation circles,'' interfaith groups that meet to discuss religious issues.
