2000-AUG-1: Iran: Women permitted to lead prayers: According to the BBC Newsroom:
Religious leaders in Iran have terminated a ban which prevented women from leading prayers. They may now conduct prayers for other women and girls. Some feel that there is a less interest in Islam among Iranian youth. By allowing female teachers and others to lead schoolgirls in prayer, there may be a renewed interest among young Muslims in their faith.

2000-AUG-13: Scotland: Catholic-Protestant tolerance: According to Newsroom: 3
"Efforts to bridge the gap between Protestant and Catholic neighbors in Scotland received a boost on Sunday with the first official visit of a moderator of the Church of Scotland to St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Cathedral in Edinburgh.

'It is a lie that Protestants are against Catholics. Those who say that Protestants are against Catholics are liars, but no lie can live forever and this one is long past its die-by date,' said the Right Reverend Andrew McLellan in a sermon to mark the start of the Edinburgh International Festival. 'It is a lie which has done immense damage to Protestants for it has allowed the most wicked parts of our psychology -- I mean our capacity to hate people -- to have some spurious quasi-religious justification'."
