Well, I have to admit, it always did annoy me that the Int. House of Prayer went by the acronym I-Hop as well. It made/makes communication a little confusing.

Odd... I have never been confused between pancakes and prayers; but, given that the Pancake

IHOP has been around longer than the Prayer IHOP - the suit may prevail in their favor...

It is silly though... imo. :blink:

LOL - what I mean is when someone says, "I'm going to I-HOP," the conversation is a bit weird when the speaker meant the one and the listener thought he meant the other.

LOL - I know... it is a little confusing - but, not worthy of a lawsuit, imo. :emot-hug:

i can understand why the lawsuit would be legally necessary. but it seems to me that the ihop (prayer) ministry should willingly acknowledge the infringement and voluntarily change their name or at least quit using the acronym. frankly, i've always wondered why they chose the name they did anyway, knowing from the very beginning that it was going to step on toes if the ministry ever grew to the size that it now has. even from the first time i ever heard of the ministry, i thought the name was an infringement, and at the very least, was wrong on many levels. it seemed like poor judgment on their part, and i have to wonder if they spent any time in prayer about it before choosing their name.

whatever happened with being at peace with everyone for as much as is possible? (Rom 12:18) If we are called to be at peace as much as is possible from our side, then the IHOPrayer should have said to themselves it would be wrong to adopt that acronym because that would be trademark infringement. They prayer movement should acquiesce imo

So Is IHOP Offended By People Who Pray At IHOP? Is Their Food That Bad?

I Agree, The Prayer Ministry Is Confusing When They Use ihop As Their Name....

Makes Me Think About A Triple Stack With Blueberry Syrup! :)

Actually, I am thinking the problem might be the internet.

www.ihop.com - pancake house

www.ihop.org - prayer

Search "ihop" - you get both.

I bet the pancake house is getting customer complaints about that.

They should just change it to IHOPE and move on. International House of Pray-ers and Evangelists.

WHen I first read the title of this article I was confused becasue I intially thought it was one IHOP suing another IHOP restranant. My curiousity got the better of me and thats how I am here replying after reading the article.

I kinda think that the IHOP- prayer should be more willing to change their name and comply and kinda think that by not doing so its giving Christians a bad name. I think they should be cooperating instead of letting this tension bulid on. We as Christians should behave in ways to make others long for Christ not resent His followers. The way I see it is the prayer organization is defrauding the restraunet and if they dont back down they will make the situation worse.

I seriously wonder if they are aware that they are doing a poor job of representing Christ to the public.

The soultion seems simple. We need to pray for this because seriously my sisters and Brothers the world is having so many negative light on Christians ... u can see for urself by also reading a review on pluggedinonline.org of the movie "Easy A". Christians are portrayled in this movie as hystercial, hypocricital, uncompassionate, judgemental, and uncaring. the movie mocks Christians as well as prayer and singing to God.
