Let’s Call God “Allah” and Jesus “Slappy White”
Tiny Muskens, a Dutch Roman Catholic Bishop in Amsterdam, released another nifty idea this week upon his wooden shoe wearing sheep. Minister Muskens, well-known for stupidity aplenty, came up with a fresh game plan of which he said would aid the Dutch, yea, the entire world in getting along with Muslims Gone Wild. Tiny proposed “that people of all faiths refer to God as Allah to foster understanding.”
Well, isn’t that special?
God bless you, Tiny. According to the Netherlands' biggest-selling newspaper, De Telegraaf, Tiny, after tabling his plan to reporters, said he had no further comment. He simply smiled, did a pirouette, stripped down to his pink boy shorts, put on a spaghetti-strapped yellow sun dress which he had in his exorcist kit and then started skipping down the cobblestone street with Boy George blaring from his iPod mini.
If it does not matter what God is called, then let those who call Him 'Allah' call Him 'God'. "Oh", some will say, "but it will matter to the muslims what He is called...". Well then, if it matters to the muslims what He is called, then it must matter that they are trying to get us to call Him "Allah"--and they must have an awfully good reason for doing so. That should give EVERY Christian pause.
