Muslim perspective of Tim Staples' article "Do Muslims Worship the Same God?"


I was just curious what Muslims say with the following things Tim Staples lists about Islam in this article.

***–Women are inferior to men (Sura 4:34)

–Men can, and even should, ‘beat’ their wives in some circumstances (Sura 4:34).

–Belief in the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ is false (Sura 4:157-159).

–Belief in the divinity of Christ is blasphemy (Sura 5:72).

–Belief in Jesus Christ as ‘the Son of God’ is grave error (Sura 19:35; 10:68).

–Muslims are commanded to ‘fight against’ Christians and all who disagree with them. Sura 9:29 says:

Fight those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which Allah and His Messenger have forbidden, nor follow the Religion of Truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgement of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.

–God wills moral as well as physical evil. In fact, Sura 37:94 says, ‘He [Allah] created you as well as what you do,’ whether good or evil.

–‘God does not love the unbelievers’ (Sura 3:32).***

Are these true Islam doctrines?

Read through this thread:

You will see the self reported “moderate but devout Muslim” defending may of these.

Particularly disturbing is his defense of murdering kids and innocents that are Christian or “westerners” and his defense of men hitting their wives.

…and also, what is considered the main sect of Islam?

For example, what is the “Catholic” version of Islam? Is it the Sunni or the Shia?
