    Judaism and Christianity (both Catholicism and Protestantism) have undergone modernization reformations, progressing from what they once were.

    Islam as practiced by the Taliban has not, which is why most modern Westerners find it medieval in the worst sense of the word.

    ‘Literal’ doesn’t always mean ‘right’…

    Joel, you fail to realize that from a New Testament perspective the sanctions in the Mosaic Law are no longer in force. This applies to sanctions concerning adultery (Leviticus 20,10 vs. John 8,1-11), idolatry (Deuteronomy 17,2-5 vs. 1 Corinthians 5,9-13), sorcery (Exodus 22,18 vs. Acts 13,6-12) or fortune-telling (Leviticus 20,27 vs. Acts 16,16-18).
