Might your situation be just like that of a Buddhist, only hoping to achieve a fraction of the worshipped one's perfection through a life of good deeds and non-sinful-ness?Oh, and about Islam; they might have had a more havoc-wreaking God / Allah and corresponding prohet than you Christians did back in the days where gods actually did things... maybe... but throughout history, it's really been the Christians that have butchered native peoples, burned and stoned people they thought were witches, and in general, not been very nice people to the rest of the world. You don't exactly see many militant Buddhists about, and the militant Islam in recent political history has really been just that -- political. Terrorist leaders have been manipulating the religion of desperate people to recruit cannon fodder in their struggle for... whatever they're struggling for. (???)Historically, Christians have joined bloody wars, if they can be called that, in frustration with the fact that native populations don't immediately accept Christianity as fact when it's shoved down their throats at gunpoint. And the fact that the have the wrong color skin. And the way they won't buy nearly enough opium.Christianity has some good points, but I think it has bad points comparable to those you've named. It's certainly no more believable.

They think that church and state should be completely one and the same. The Qur'an even specifies its social laws. Around the globe there are courts specifically for muslims to be punished under THEIR law.The SAME law that promotes large scale execution, a man's word being twice that of a womans (in court). The same law that says if a woman is raped, she needs 4 MALE witnesses, otherwise she only confessed to adultery.This is Islamic law. Shari'a law.

To say those are part of Muslim law, then imply it as applied to Muslim courts of law is incorrect and ignorant.
