- Why Is There No Muslim Version Of The Pope?
the pope is only the leader of one strand of the christian faith too, there isn’t a go-to guy for all world christianity (apart from Cliff Richard, obviously).
Its a shame really that the diversity of muslim religions is so ill-understood. There was a knee jerk reaction after 9/11 that somehow Bin Ladin and Sadam Hussain were somehow in league over the attacks which is like saying Ian Paisley and Gerry Adams are allies. Its ignorance on our part but its fuelled by the proclaimations of islamic terrorists who claim to operate from, and for muslims and that their actions are the pinnacle and conclusion of their faith. It would be a laughable claim if it wasn’t for the fact that really nobody seems to know any better than to take it at face value.Posted 4 years agokonabunnyMember
Catholicism is not a religion. It’s a sect within Christianity.
Islam and Protestantism inherently spawn sects because they both believe that the word of god is revealed to everyone equally through the sacred text, and that everyone literate has equal access to the word of god.
Catholicism and Orthodoxy put more emphasis on the word of god being mediated through certain jewel-encrusted, abuser-concealing earthly representatives of god.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

According to a quick google it is Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad.
Ooh, that’s a suggestion that wouldn’t go down too well! He’s a sect leader, but it’s a relatively small sect, and an unpopular one- much of the muslim world considers them blasphemers and non-muslims.
Bit like declaring Jerry Falwell the supreme head of Christianity 😉Posted 4 years ago
