    No argument.

    I have to wonder if South America is more respectful of Jesus than North America and the rest of the world.

    I like to think that those who do not use the name Jesus recognize that he, as portrayed by the churches, is just not worthy of us.

    I like the archetypal Jesus good man and so do most, but to tie Jesus' name to Yahweh makes Jesus a genocidal son murdering God who all should reject.

    This my second post.

    If Mohammad is considered a prophet, not an actual manifestation of God, then it would be comparable to the English names John, Matthew, Mark, Luke, Noah, James, Peter etc.

    Respecting the prophets. But stopping short of naming a child the name of the actual God.

    Off topic. Best name ever for a God: "Dun Manifestin" from Terry Pratchetts Discworld novels.

    Funny when I was 12. Still funny now.

    If Jesus was the name of an actual God, you would have a point.

    A God cannot die and Jesus did, which makes him a Rabbi and prophet, not a God.

    Many cultures pass on names of those they wish to show respect to. The Muslim community pass on the name Mohamad more than Christians do with the name of Jesus. This name respect is lacking in the Christian cultures.

    I think it is due to the fact that none in the Abrahamic cults can justify Yahweh/Jesus’ genocide of mankind.

    Yahweh’s son Jesus has not been deemed worthy of respect for moral reasons. Christians recognize the imperfections and agree with the ostracising of the name Jesus. Hence their not passing on the name and showing disrespect. Jesus is as unworthy to literal reading people in the myriad of Christian cults, as is Yahweh.

    Are the myriad of Christian and Catholic cults showing a lack of respect for the name of Jesus as compared to the respect Muslims show the name Mohammad?

    Dude, your question was about Christians. We're only talking about people who accept the Trinity.

    I don't believe in Thor, but I accept that a Viking kid named Thor was named after a God.

    True. I was just pointing out that the three headed God cannot have one of his heads die.

    Christopher

    Pronunciation of Christopher [christo-pher]▼ as a boys' name is pronounced KRIS-toh-fer. It is of Greek origin, and the meaning of Christopher is "bearing Christ".

    I wonder how many Christians even know that.

    There are still a lot more Mohammads than all the Christ derivatives.
