The difference is that while Christianity has the New Testament, which basically says not to follow anything in the Old Testament and is focused much more on the 'love thy neighbor' message, Islam treats the ENTIRE Quran as authoritative, with no part taking precedence over the other.

Not that the New Testament has shielded us from abuses by supposed Christians by any means.

The most refreshing thing in this whole ugly episode though has been the support this young woman has received both in Pakistan and abroad from Muslims. For years, people have been saying "If Islam isn't the issue, why don't they stand up and protest against the extremists," well maybe this finally a turning point.
