Part 3: Overall Tone of the Two Religions )

I stumbled into this page the other day while searching for a rather unrelated subject. It's an evangelical Christian article that purports to illustrate, point-for-point, the differences between Christianity and Islam. It makes some good points, uses some clever language, but ultimately twists far too many facts, or outright ignores them, to serve its evangelism. I found it rather disturbing, and having said that, began to form a response to it.

In the midst of doing so, I realized I was going to end up with a fairly long essay on the subject. So far, I’ve written about half of it. It’s really turned out to be far longer than I initially expected, and taken far longer than I expected. This initial response to the first three segments has already taken a week. I’ve put up the mentioned segments, for those interested in reading them.

Although I say this essay was written by me, it was realistically written by two people, and I have to thank the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] mokie for her insight, her sharp eyes and her unbelievably succinct judgement. I apologize in advance if my essay is in conflict with friends and family who may eventually read this, but I do not apologize for the text itself.

Please note, this essay is as yet unfinished. In its finality, I predict it to come out in about 10 or 11 parts.

Currently available: Parts 1-2, Part 3, Part 4a, Part 4b
