John, I think it is a splendid idea to approach those religious leaders who 
have not yet taken a clear stand on this issue. 

According to recent statistics I got, the Catholic Church has 1.7 billion 
people closely followed by Islam with about 1.4 billion. So approaching 
major leaders might no doubt have a great impact. I don't believe in the 
malediction about the pope by an other list participant although I am not a 
catholic. Other sources seem to indicate that he is a truly spiritual person 
with a high level of moral integrity. We should not refrain from action 
because of preconceptions about his person.
