A German Catholic bishop is seriously advocating that henceforth Christians and Jews should call God Allah. He says there is no theological argument against it and he argues that it would be a significant step towards a rapprochment with Muslims.
I don’t doubt that there is no theological prohibition against Christians and Jews calling God Allah. But it seems to me this is carrying “reasonable accomodation” to a ridiculous extreme. Besides I rather doubt that it would make all that much difference with the Muslim world.
What do you think?
