A Christian clergyman called for using the Arabic word of "Allah" instead of its English equivalent "God."Let's not get carried away.
According to al-Shargh al-Awsat daily, Tini Muskinos, bishop of Brida church in the Netherlands said that "the Arabic word, "Allah" is more beautiful and better than its English equivalent.
The 71 year old clergyman who has lived in Indonesia for a while added "Indonesian people use the Arabic word of Allah instead of its English equivalent and I aked myself why we shouldn't use it in Europe."
The clergyman, now is waiting for the answer of Vatican to his call.
