Those churches/congregations accepting "malleable" ideologies (i.e. - homosexuality) are apostate. Islam does not accept them and neither do real Christians. Islam holds its believers to scriptural standard at the point of a gun/sword. That has worked well for it. Christianity does no such thing so apostasy over the centuries waxes and wanes.
The United States is based on certain laws that define it. We are not a democracy but a Republic defined by those laws. Majority opinion does not legally change definition. It is the same with both Christianity and Islam. Because any number regardless of majority or not decides contrary to written scripture (Christianity & Islam) or law in the case of the US does not validate the change. With both, scripture is the standard regardless of current fashion.
Increasingly gaining the upper hand today, Islam will not see any need to change 14 centuries of belief, behavior, or the scriptures themselves.
