So it seems to me, too.

I once picked up a leaflet about islam, distributed by a student islamic society. It struck me that islam and protestantism had several things in common: shallow grasp of the significance of the Incarnation, naive interpretation of sacred texts, emphasis on "personal" relationship with God, etc.

(One thing they don't have in common is this: the spell-checker my browser picks up automagically complains about "islam" and "islamic" with a lower-case 'i', but not "protestant" or "protestantism" with a wee 'p'. Odd, that!)
