From Allah to Zeus, from Acan to Zinsi, religious types like to name their gods. Except Christians! ‘Blessed be thy name’ goes their favourite prayer, but what is it? Well now their prayers will be answered, as this summer sees the launch of an international campaign to give the world’s favourite omnipotent being a name.
In ‘Name that Deity’ players across the globe can sign up on-line, pay the $20 registration donation, and silently prayer for the name they want. On 1st September, in a globally televised christening, Pope Francis, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Tony Blair will announce the winning name after its revealed to them by Jesus on a burnt piece of toast.
