first you have to guess what I mean by "Islam is not a religion"


I think you most likely mean that Islam is a community and a way of life. If believed strictly it is cult-like and influences every aspect of daily life to the point of immersion. Other religions are typically part-time or cultural aspects of peoples lives, not the defining feature of who they are.


For some people, so is Mormonism. The trick here is that it's not a state religion (yet), unless the state you live in is Utah. Not. You can still live in Utah and ignore Mormonism for the most part. Making sweeping generalisations about this or that religious system is tempting. Imagine writing the book that proves Islam is a pox upon humanity. Your fame would spread far and wide!
