Islam and Paganism

Jeff Mirus posits an interesting notion regarding Islam and Paganism in the online journal, Catholic Culture. Mirus says, " is no good denying Islam’s devotion to the One, which Mohammed derived indirectly from Revelation; clearly, he was a passionately committed monotheist. But it is critical to realize that Islam is not based on any sort of special revelation given by the One to his people, except insofar as it borrows imperfectly from Judaism and Christianity."

I recall Gil Bailie saying in his tape series on Carl Jung that the time came when he realized that Dante could understand Jung but Jung could not understand Dante. May the many who suffer downstream of "the Prophet" under the pharisaical quasi-revelations of the Koran come to realize the same thing about Islam.
