Wahhabism is like Islam as much as the KKK is like Christianity
Don't fall for US and elitist European progressive academic myth. Islam as a religious eschatology, is a problem globally - from the Philippines to Sweden to DRC Africa. As a person who has worked in the Wahhabist triangle in Saudi Arabia (and had to wear a disguise to keep from being assaulted or killed) and worked on the Yemeni rebuild - the CIA neither started, nor is it sustaining this 900 year old conflict of Shi'a empire aspiration. Radical Islamic (both Shi'a and Sunni) expansion is ranked in the top 5 concerns of every nation for which I have done infrastructure strategy, throughout Asia and Africa. It was the #2 concern for China - #1 for the Philippines. Not one country has ever cited extreme elements of Christianity as a top concern.
The KKK-mindset has been rejected and denounced by Christianity - it is no longer any form of exculpatory analogy. Islam has not exorcized its darker nature - and still celebrates and wallows inside it. Citing expansionist and displacing/genocidal radical portions of the religion is not a fallacy of composition at all - until Islam begins to denounce this prevailing circumstance globally and publicly takes action against this philosophy - all mankind will suffer the Tyflocracy of the Imams. But back to our thread topic.
The rest of your post Pamela is insightful and well stated Two things I found I had to reject from having lived that ruin they can cause in one's life
1. Tying up heavy bundles to place on men's shoulders, of heaven-hell and 'you might not really be saved unless faith is confirmed' and 'once you lose your salvation you can never regain it'. The cruelty of these teachings is very dark - perhaps the most evil thing a man can do to another, short of murder/rape.
2. "[Taking] the meaning out of life and turn it into a lesson, turn it into a trivial thing. This can cause us to ignore or put on the back burner what is most important in life." < --- well stated!
Spiritual integrity (context 'wholeness of structure' not 'morality or goodness') involves not letting either philosophy corrupt your mission and intent.
