The sad state of European society, or at least its cultural elites, is captured by this story about a Dutch bishop who says Christians should start calling God “Allah” to mollify European Muslims:
Catholic churches in the Netherlands should use the name Allah for God to ease tensions between Muslims and Christians, says a Dutch bishop.
Tiny Muskens, the bishop of Breda, told the Dutch TV program “Network” Monday night he believes God doesn’t mind what he is called, Radio Netherlands Worldwide reported.
The Almighty is above such “discussion and bickering,” he insisted.
Most Dutch Christians appear to have responded to the idea with dismay or ridicule. I’m not sure how many actual Christians are left in the Netherlands, however. With leadership like this, it’s a wonder there are any.
