I do single out Islam as uniquely bad. No, you can't just replace "Muslims" with "Catholics". Catholics have a core text that can at least be invoked to "love your fellow man", "turn the other cheek", and "render to Caesar that which is Caesar's". Nor is it meant to be the perfect word of God so it can be heavily cherrypicked.

That doesn't apply to Islam.

To this day, not all Jews embrace monogamy as a religious principle, though polygamy is not practiced for practical reasons. Hagar was Sarah's slave. Why would she give Hagar to her husband as a full wife?

Yes, Muslims have a different version of that story, but theirs is much more recent, and is obviously intended as revisionist.

You don't have to believe in the historicity of either version to see this.
