A Roman Catholic bishop in the Netherlands has suggested people of all faiths refer to God as "Allah" to ease tensions.

What an utter ass.

Appeasement lives.

What an idiot!!!

Christina RN LMT said...

And a big, hearty "FUCK YOU!" to that bishop...and I'm agnostic!
I'm reminded of Mr. Neville Chamberlain, getting off the plane from Berlin, saying "...peace for our time!"
Yeah, right.

I second the "What an idiot" vote.

Good heavens, girl, can't I have every lovin' thing hit the fan at once and get swept out of the real world without you going off and getting so ill while I'm not looking? Just got connected back today - feel utterly terrible that I didn't know about your horrid situation since I could have at least sent heart-felt requests aloft on your behalf. We need to confer on disaster timing in the future, okay?

fhb - this is so ironic, considering the real problems they've been having with radical Islam in the Netherlands. I chalk their social unrest up to their milquetoast, limp-wristed unwillingness to stand up to the bullshit and put down a rabid dog. This is will only garner them more of same.

fuzzbox - too true.

christina - Indeed. what a loser, and damn his eyes for being such a spineless jelly.

lin - yuppers.
No worries - you've got monsoons to deal with, and your are your own infrastructure person, which means "needs must." You don't have the luxury of just kicking back and calling in a technician from a few blocks away. *L* Sorry you had a crisis, too, and I'm so glad you're back. I worry about y'all being so isolated out in the wilds, but I so admire that you have the boldness and self-sufficiency to do so. I envy that. You're one of my heroes!

Blatant cowardice. Hell, why not pray on a mat 5 times a day, you appeasing prat? Hey, guess what: the Muslims will still hate you. Nice try though.

kevin - absolutely. How can he think anything would be accomplished by caving in like that?
