Malaysian court tells Christians they can't say 'Allah'

Malaysia's highest court has upheld a ban on Catholics using the word 'Allah' to refer to their own god, ending a years-long legal battle.

The verdict came in what was seen as a test case for the country's wider Christian congregation, but officials insist the verdict is confined to one Catholic newspaper.

Worshippers can still use 'Allah' to refer to God in church, the government said.

If it made a difference to God, he'd remind us.
