In another stunning attempt at appeasement in the Netherlands, a Roman Catholic bishop has suggested that everyone call God "Allah." What is he thinking? Was he thinking?
First of all, two of the three major religions refer to God as "God." So, by a majority vote, we win.
Second, we were here first.
Third, Americans are notoriously lazy. "God" has only one syllable while "Allah" has two - double the work - don't see that happening.
Fourth, We'd have to change all our money - thought the ACLU might like that since they've been trying to get "God" off our money for quite a while.
Fifth, I'm sure Osama is over there clapping his hands and pointing at the computer screen saying, "Oh yeah! That's what I'm talking about. Man, they just give us that one and we'll call off this whole terrorism thing."
I guess the only good thing I can see out of this whole idea is that maybe PG-13 movies would stop using G-D as a substitue for the F-bomb. We know they wouldn't substitute an "A-D," now would they?
