Reader comment on item: CAIR's Assault on Paul Harvey
in response to reader comment: The True Meaning of Islam

The ONLY "religion" that Islam resembles is Calvinism, due to their shared belief that God knows the future. This enables both to get away with anything - "predestination" for the calvinists, sanctioned murder for islam, aka as the rhetorically "sanitized" jihad, another name for serial murder.

True Christianity holds that even an omniscient God does not know the future, so true Christians are unable to invent such convenient rationalizations as are Calvinism and Islam. It must be nice to have that "Get Out Of Hell Free" card, even if it is complete bullshit.

I suggest further reading in comparative religious textbooks, along with a crash course in Quantum Mechanics, which explains why the future is unknowable by ANY BEING. You could make the case that QM was God's gift to humanity. It certainly blows calvinism and islam off the list of relevant, ethical, belief systems.
