This morning, Kyle Sandilands unambiguously and fully apologised for his remarks about the Blessed Virgin Mary. His co-host Jackie O (Jacqueline Ellen Last) also apologised. In addition, an apology was received yesterday from the management of the radio station, KIIS 1065.

Both the Christian and Muslim faith leaders accept the apology and extend a hand of friendship to Kyle Sandilands for the way he addressed the issue this morning and for his sincere apology.

Based on the firm belief in divine love, mercy, and forgiveness, expressed both in the Holy Bible and the Holy Quran, we are confident that the faithful, who were hurt and who gathered peacefully and prayerfully outside the radio station, will likewise accept the tendered apologies and forgive, without any shadow of continuing resentment, in a spirit of peace and reconciliation.

We all seek to build peace and harmony in our multicultural society, based on mutual respect of beliefs and religious freedom. We hope that this unfortunate incident will be a step towards a more considerate and respectful dialogue.


Very Rev Fr Matthew Attia, Metropolitan Basilios Kodseie, Sheikh Malek Zaidan, Archbishop Amel Nona, Bishop Robert Rabbat, Sheikh Yahya Safi, Very Rev Fr Tadros Simon, Sheikh Youssef Nabha, and Bishop Antoine-Charbel Tarabay.
