Bishop: Call God 'Allah' to ease relations

I found this appalling. Post-modernism gone crazy. Hey Bishop, why does God care if we call Jesus a prophet and Mohammad his messenger. Right? Makes sense! We have to bend over backwards to accommodate other religions while Saudi Arabia tortures Christians and throws out bibles in baggages at airports.

Here's part of the article:
"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."

A survey in the Netherlands' biggest-selling newspaper De Telegraaf on Wednesday found 92 percent of the more than 4,000 people polled disagreed with the bishop's view, which also drew ridicule.

"Sure. Lets call God Allah. Lets then call a church a mosque and pray five times a day. Ramadan sounds like fun," Welmoet Koppenhol wrote in a letter to the newspaper.

While we are on this subject here's a cartoon I found. This speaks volumes.
