To summarize:

  • The Old Testament says a woman who is not a virgin on her wedding night should be stoned to death.
  • Islam teaches that Jesus is a prophet to be revered.
  • The Old and New Testaments and the Quran are all sympathetic to slavery.
  • Jesus never expresses a view on homosexuality.
  • “Repel the evil deed with one which is better,” is in the Quran. In other words, respond to evil with kindness.
  • Muhammad had at least one Jewish wife.
  • St. Paul is quoted as saying women should stay silent during services.
