;"But what about christianity... Jesus is the only way to go to heaven. How can a non-christian(muslim) comfortably live in a christian society theologically?"

I'll speak in absolutes of the ideologies, as yours above...

By the fruits we see of Islam, no appreciable change is evident since it's beginnings in the seventh century. But a half millennium before Mohammad, a JEW (Jesus Christ) fulfilled the Jewish Mosaic Law, making it necessary for JEWS and 'ALL' others to 'become' Christ's followers, to be acceptable to God. Yes not JEWS are ‘special' as far as salvation is concerned.

If someone does not want to be a follower of Christ, Christ says it is his or her choice. Leave them alone, it's up to God, i.e, -no decapitation allowed. ("Love God 'AND' neighbor.")

Passage Matthew 10:14-15:

14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, as ye go forth out of that house or that city, SHAKE OFF THE DUST OF YOUR FEET. 15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city.

Mohammad, dissatisfied with Judaism and Christendom arrogantly, supposedly abrogated 'both' of them. Welcome to Mohammad's alternate Universe.

Mohammad; "There is no God but Allah, and Mohammad is his prophet!!!" (the context being: "YOU WILL WORSHIP THE GOD LIKE I SAY YOU WILL WORSHIP THE GOD LIKE I DEFINE THE GOD, OR - ELSE -!!!)

In a secular culture based on Jeudo-Christian ethics & mores (America) Muslims have no fear, but according to America's Founding Documents, their OXYMORON is Sharia Law.

The REALISTIC question is, how can Muslims (practicing present day Islam) be American citizens??? America's "Pledge Of Allegiance" is a ‘no brainer'.
