Pope Benedict's proposal- which maintains that the human being consists of will, spirit, and nature, and that this nature should occupy its natura! piace in legislation, in dialogue, and in the encounter with others - has solid support in Islamic tradition. Indeed, a linguistic analysis of the word difference in the Qur'anic context shows how Islam pushes the proposal even a step further, asserting that each person had an inalienable right to difference, which is, in fact, the very thing that makes us individuals. Difference, therefore, can be neither reduced nor eliminated. On the contrary, the legislature must affirm and respect it, remaining bound by it as the ideai mode!. If it succeeds in doing so, the rule of the majority may inch closer to the rule of justice in contemporary society.
