Comparing Islam and Christianity


Comparing Islam and Christianity A lot of time is spent talking about religion in America and in the last decade or so, the religion of Islam has come under great scrutiny. More recently, what it means to be a Christian has been debated hotly during the GOP primary race regarding topics like abortion, contraceptive rights, and same sex marriage. Today we compare Christianity and the Islamic faiths to see where they are similar and in what fundamental ways they are different. We'll meet one man who converted from Islam to Christianity and a woman who embraced Islam after life as a Catholic. We learn about their journeys.
