REPEAT AFTER ME: THE NATION OF ISLAM IS NOT THE SAME THING AS ISLAM

From this morning's Post:

Muhammad, born John Allen Williams, changed his name after converting to Islam. In court papers, his ex-wife Mildred said that the couple, who married in 1988, were members of the Nation of Islam and attended a mosque in Seattle.

Nope, they didn't repeat after me.

Here's a very quick rundown on some differences at a USC site. For starters, Nation of Islam followers believe in:

one God (Allah) and that Allah (God) appeared in the Person of Master W.Fard Muhammad, July, 1930; the long awaited 'Messiah' of the Christians and the 'Mahdi' of the Muslims...

Nation of Islam = Louis Farrakhan and a whole kettle of fish I won't go into right now.

Update--I've deleted a Malcolm X quote I had here earlier; out of context for what I'm trying to say.

Update: OmbudsGod comments and provides a link with more information on this subject.
