Why is it then that those “authentic” practicioners murder, destroy, and denegrate life wherever they go? Islam was an demonically inspired cult, spread by the sword, and enforced by backwards fanatics. It is 100% of the devil. While we should engage rational muslims with a spirit of love, we should not lie to ourselves and the world and pretend it is anything other than an evil scourge upon God’s fallen world.
Ultimately, all faiths are embraces of supernatural entities. We can allow for the way the faiths are lived out on earth to be imperfect, in fact individual examples can be pretty wacked out to external appearances. But we have no basis to claim that a faith that calls for fleshly domination of the world, and even the “moderates” are biding their time until that happens, is centered around the Christ, even “imperfectly.”
