in response to reader comment: Christianity could not show them the right path...

I find it funny how someone mistakes experience for knowledge. Having a Muslim son in law hardly qualifies anyone as an expert on Islam. And the ignorant assessment that "Islam doesn't mandate change" indicates clearly that your understanding of the religion as a whole is cursory at best.

Interestingly enough, one can easily opine about Christianity that it is an "easy way out". That there is no real mandate for change...hence priests who molest, evangelists who lie, cheat, and steal while healing anyone (thru the magic of television)...See, there is nothing established with regards accountability - just accept Jesus as your "savior" and "voila!", you are on the way to Heaven. Who here can judge you or "mandate" that you do anything in the name of christianity? Yup, no one...

So...before you point at your neighbor's dirty yard, clean your own. And before you presume to assess a religion, do some actual studying (beyond web-surfing, that is...)

My salaams and sympathy to your son in law...
