I have a bone to pick with the way some media outlets have been referring to Muhammed as ‘The Prophet’ in order to gain favor with the Islamists they admire and with the Emperor who has stated that “The Future Must Not Belong To Those Who Slander The Prophet of Islam.”
Just can it, already. First of all, everybody can spot your faux-Cosmopolitan affectation; it’s as phony as going out of the way to pronounce Spanish names with an exaggerated Hispanic accent, or the way the Emperor says ‘Pah-Kee-Stahn.’ Second, I belong to a church that is led by a living Prophet. Sucking up to the Mohammedans by acting as though their “prophet” is the only one is disrespectful and insulting, not just to my religion, but also to Christians and Jews who revere Biblical Prophets such as Isaiah, Elijah, Elisha, Jeremiah… and so forth.
It also tells us much that the only religion you even feign respect for is the one that will kill you if you don’t.
