In what could be the most mind blowing thing I’ve tried to comprehend today…
The parallel between Christianity and Islam is not that Christ parallels Mohammed and the Qur’an parallels the Bible. The parallel is that the Qur’an parallels Christ. The giving of the Qur’an is in Islam what the incarnation of Christ is to Christianity.
If this is so, then Qur’an-burning is parallel to Christ-crucifying.
Whoah, that’s some really deep heavy stuff to get my head around.
