A Comforting thought about Islam

In his intro to Origin of the Species, Ray Comfort outlines his beef with Islam:

Interestingly, Islam acknowledges the reality of sin and Hell, and the justice of God, but the hope it offers is that sinners can escape God’s justice if they do religious works. God will see these, and because of them, hopefully He will show mercy—but they won’t know for sure. Each person’s works will be weighed on the Day of Judgment and it will then be decided who is saved and who is not—based on whether they followed Islam, were sincere in repentance, and performed enough righteous deeds to outweigh their bad ones.

In other words, Ray's main complaint about Islam is that it incentivizes people to be good -- unlike his twisted version of Christianity, in which "accepting Christ" (whatever the hell that means) is the only thing that matters.

Wow, good going Ray. You are actually convincing me that the religion of Osama might be somewhat less objectionable than yours.
