Making sense

Gotta love the Dutch bishop who proposes that Christians adopt the name 'Allah' when speaking of God. And why not?
Bishop Tiny Muskens, from the southern diocese of Breda, told Dutch television on Monday that God did not mind what he was named and that in Indonesia, where Muskens spent eight years, priests used the word "Allah" while celebrating Mass.
"Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? ... What does God care what we call him? It is our problem."

And, in Stuck on the Palmetto, Rick wonders why a couple of Florida boys caught driving around with pipe bombs and bomb-making materials didn't get the same attention from police, media and blogs as the two Muslim men in South Carolina: When Your Name is Mohamed.
