Reader comment on item: Identifying Moderate Muslims

Submitted by Andy (United States), Jul 12, 2005 at 19:00

Here is the difference that almost all Islamics can't understand about Christianity, Judaism and Islam:

In Judaism and Christianity the state is separate from the religion. If one reads the Bible(are you listening Rasheed), the King is separate from the prophet. Christianity is not the government. Islam sees no distinction between the state and the religion. One cannot say the KKK is a terrorist Christian organization, because the KKK was built on the idea of Racism not on anything in the religion. British colonialism has to do with the British government, and nothing to do with the religion, because not everyone in the British government was or is a Christian.

Christianity has never been the part of a government. The Roman empire adopted Christianity as the state religion hundereds of years after the religion started. Mohammad, the Koran, made no distinction between the government and the religion. Mohammad was the prophet was the government.

Here is the difference between Judaism and Christianity. A person is a Jew no matter what they believe, because a person is born a jew, although a person could become one. If a person is a catholic or an orthodox Christian, depending on what you do, you can be kicked out or ex-communicated, and therefore are nolonger a Christian. No one is born a Christian.
