    I am sure Allah or God or whatever you call him is smart enough to figure out that you are calling his name regardless of what or in which language you call him.

    Hence, I laugh at the ppl who say that prayers should only be read in the original language of the religion.

    Oh and Catholics getting behind AIDS prevention or smoothing things out with other religions? I think they would rather finance another Crusade before they get on board with those.

    Then let Muslims call him God/Jesus instead of Allah.

    I'm not Catholic or Muslim but, as it said, words mean things. Call your deity what you will but this suggestion is just stupid.

    Just call him 'the creator' or 'father in heaven' and you're done.

    I worship God. Anyone who worships Allah is welcome to. Doesn't bother me.

    :censored: all of this appeasement crap.

    Latin/Arabic/Hebrew, etc. take your pick. There is always some sect in a religion that believes this.

    I say we call him something that is unoffensive. Like Frank.

    This statement is demonstrably untrue, but I think I have said enough already. Statements like this demonstrate an extremely shallow understanding of either Islam, Christianity, or Judaism, or perhaps even all three.
