Saudis object to dot-Catholic top domain name

Dixit the Saudis:

“Many other Christians use the term 'Catholic' to refer more broadly to the whole Christian Church regardless of denominational affiliation,” the Saudi Communication and Information Technology Commission said in its complaint.
“Other Christian communions lay claim to the term "Catholic" such as the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Oriental Orthodox Church.”
"Therefore, we respectfully request that ICANN not award this."

So concerned for the sensitivities of Christians around the world.

Completely insensitive to the Christians in their own backyard.
