    A Question

    Why does U.S. media always refer to the Islamic prophet Mohammed as "The Prophet Mohammed", but does not refer to Jesus Christ as "The Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ"?

    Both faiths generally call their guy these thing.

    Those not of the faith, however, would not accept one as a prophet or the other as a Savior.

    So why does one get the extra respect and honor of always being described as "the prophet" by U.S. media nonbelievers, but the other does not get that same respect and honor?

    Always found that curious.

    likely because Mohammed is the most common name on earth. Have to be more specific about who you're talking about.

    Because Christians won't blow up your studio for disrespecting their imaginary friend while Muslims will.

    So "smart", yet always with questions

    Especially ones that have obvious answers

    You live in a bubble of lib media you only hear their crackpot polari

    Questioning their Orwellian lingo is verboten!

    Question:
    Why do people still believe in these fairy tales?
    Prophet Mohammed, Lord/Savior Jesus Christ? Come on folks we are living in the year 2012 not 1012. People who look to religion as their identity are sad and silly.

    You know why.

    because your average American has no idea who this Mohammed guys is so it needs clarification.
