"I don't know anybody but a Mormon who would regard Mormons as Christian."

Heh! Spectacular example of religious prejudice in action. Look, if someone says he's a Christian, it's nobody else's business to say he's not. Same goes for anyone who says he's a Muslim.

As for whether his way of being a Christian or a Muslim suits you, well, that's another matter altogether.

Every culture has in its makeup a number of common habits and attitudes that are not agreed to or liked by people in other cultures. That's life. That's the way it is. To condemn Cat/Yusuf for the various aspects of Muslim culture YOU don't like is about as pointless as him condeming you for something similar that you take for granted that he doesn't like.

No culture is perfect. No religion is perfect. No adherent of any religion is perfect either...and YOU aren't perfect.

So my advice is: don't cast the first stone.
