I find this sort of thing exasperating.
I won’t respond here, now, to the other assertions made by this charming little contribution to world peace and community harmony, but I will say something about the declaration that “There is no God called Allah.” (I imagine myself translating it into Arabic. It would come out as “There is no God called God,” or, at best, “There is no god called God.”)
In the Facebook “conversation” that has recently followed someone’s posting of the ignorant image above, someone — probably a Latter-day Saint — provided a link to that column. Of course, merely injecting actual historical and linguistic fact into such an exchange rarely changes the minds of militantly uninformed people, and this instance proved no exception. One “Christian” lady, “replying” to me, announced that I was a “liar” and then offered the tantalizing suggestion that, if her audience would just consult “the website” about the “freemasons and Lummenatti” — by which I suppose she meant the “Illuminati” — they would learn all about me. (Does anybody have the slightest idea what she was talking about? I’m really curious to see this site myself.)
I hope that no Latter-day Saints are spreading or supporting this sort of nonsense.
