Indeed, Jim; I agree entirely with that postulation. But would add that, altho they are all mischievous in their various ways, this does not lead to the conclusion sometimes asserted that they are all equally so, so one shouldn't try to 'demonise' any above the others. I say again that IMO Islam is one with the greatest potential for harm in its teachings, and that to say that we should not take measures to protect ourselves from some of the potential of its effects is equivalent to asserting that, as all illnesses are undesirable, it doesn't really matter if you get cancer or a cold. I have been accused of "twisting someone's words" in making this comparison, but I remain blowed if I can see how.
