    Dutch bishop: Call God 'Allah' to ease relations

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20279326/?GT1=10252Updated: 10:29 a.m. CT Aug 15, 2007
    AMSTERDAM - A Roman Catholic Bishop in the Netherlands has proposed people of all faiths refer to God as Allah to foster understanding, stoking an already heated debate on religious tolerance in a country with one million Muslims.

    Bishop Tiny Muskens, from the southern diocese of Breda, told Dutch television on Monday that God did not mind what he was named and that in Indonesia, where Muskens spent eight years, priests used the word "Allah" while celebrating Mass.

    "Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? ... What does God care what we call him? It is our problem."

    Fuck that...why don't they just call him God like the rest of us!
    I propose that we encourage every one of his parishoners to beat the bishop!

    Funny.
    You do realize that the Islamic Allah, the Christian God, the Jewish Yahweh, Jehova, YHWH, JHVH, or any of the other terms are actually referring to the same deity?
    Who cares what someone calls God?
