Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: The Two-Edged Sword of Islam

I personally made the same assumption initially re Biblical names and assumed that Sarah was a 'Christian' name. However, it only takes a couple of minutes thought to realise that at the time of the stories that we are referring to there were no Jews, Christians or Muslims (at least not as defined in the terms that we understand them today) so it shouldn't really be surprising that certain names will be common to each text.

It's a cause of incredible frustration to see the constant sniping at religion and the creation of 'mountains out of molehills'. Why do people get so hung up on the details and avoid the real issues? Staggering.
