How does one reconcile Islam and Christianity?

A former apparently-moderate Muslim hissed once in a fit of Islamic rage that his wife was a Muslim and a Christian.

This woman sounds as though she chose the confusion directly, and not through marriage:
". . . she is a Muslim and a Christian. . . She made the comment that she didn't want to try and resolve the differences between the two theologies, then stated she wants to found an institute to study them."
Here's the resolution . . .

Muhammad said:
"In blasphemy indeed are those that say that Allah is Christ the son of Mary. . ." (Qur'an 5:17).

"They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god except One Allah. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them" (Qur'an 5:73).

". . . the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth" (Qur'an 9:30)!
But Jesus said, "Before Abraham was born, I AM!"
So, Muhammad calls the Son of God a "blasphemer."

In other words, there is no way to make peace between the two.

I just saved her (and perhaps taxpayers) millions of dollars.
