Musings: What's in a name?

If you have been paying attention, you know that there is a British schoolmarm in Sudan who is under arrest for breaking Muslim law. Gillian Gibbons probably wishes that she had named a Teddy Bear Charlies instead of Mohammad. She allowed one of her students, whose name is Mohammad, to name it and she was looking at 40 lashes and a year in prison. Or, as some militants want to do, execute her.

Well, sometimes we say there ain't nothing in a name...and really there isn't. But in country that is so ignorant that they think the name Mohammad is sacred, a name can get you killed. (See Link

Well they didn't lash her but they gave her 15 days in the stir and deported her. Yeah, for Muslim justice. It seems there is no end to the extent of amazement that comes with the Muslim religion. Even an innocent act can get you killed. Personally, I like the compassionate Christian God better. At least he seems to have a sense of humor. Jeeezzzzzzzz!
