There is no God but Who?

Bishop Tiny Muskins of Breda, the Netherlands, has urged his fellow Dutch Catholics to start calling God Allah and has suggested replacing the national holiday Whit Monday, which comes the day after Pentecost, considered the birthday of the church, with an Islamic religious day, according to WorldNetDaily.

The purpose of these concessions is to ease tensions between the adherents of Christianity and those of Islam, which Bishop Muskins in 2005 called a religion without a future because of its “violent aspects”.

So Christians are supposed to follow the lead of a future-less religion in hopes of appeasing those who are prone to violence?

That’s as implausible as Dutch Prime Minister Hendrik Colijn’s public insistence that Adolph Hitler would respect Holland’s neutrality, hours before Germany invaded, and as cowardly as his plea for Dutchmen to accept German hegemony in Europe, a few days later.

  1. I suppose this might work with nominal “christians”. They may gradually be convinced to change their words and names to become nominal “muslims”. But I would rather suggest that muslims get used to the name Son of Man, since he will be judging everyone on the last day.

    “Then a teacher of the law came to him and said, ‘Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.’ Jesus replied, ‘Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.'” (New Testament Matt 8:20)

    ‘When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.'” (New Testament Matt 25:31,32)
