I don't really have a position on this debate, but this is patently false:

"For the record, Christianity has an equally terrifying concept: That God punishes the faithful for the sins of the unfaithful, thus making the sinner an existent threat to the Christian (and indeed, him/herself and all mankind). We see this in Sodom & Gomorrah and the Floods."

I'm not a Christian nor a Muslim, but there is no way that God punishing sinners is as terrifying a concept as men believing they are commanded by God to punish sinners.

In the former case, the worst that can happen is that we attribute natural disasters to God's will.

In the latter case, we have people blowing themselves up to kill other people.

There is a real difference there.
