How so, there's no central teaching authority, no consensus. Its a major issue in Islam  when a man as Al-Baghdadi  can interpret and emulate Mohammed 7th century Islam .  I don't understand what you saying?

Catholics don't interpret scripture in the strictest sense, the Church does.  And throughout the year in cycle.  Catholics who attend Church as required are taught the Bible at mass without even knowing it.

And just to add, though not your point, frankly I find the idea "we should ask a Islamic scholar" anything at all, suspect to say the least and my example of an Islamic scholar is, well, Al-Baghdadi.  Is there another dictator which one should pay more astute attention to?  Good and radical Islam wants to conquer the world and that my friend is slavery.  In fact I give Al-Baghdadi credit. I can accept an honest man  be it I agree with him or not.

That is right. ther eis no central teaching authority in Islam. However tehy don't all interpret the Coran in the strictest sense either. Many years ago an Islamic pundit criticized be for the "Christian" attitude towards the Bible. He held up the King james version of teh Bible and quoted something out of it. I interupted him and said that he didn't know what he was talking about. First o all the criticism that he made in reference to me was the same criticism that we as Catholics make with reference to Protestants. Secondly, I told him that he was using the wrong Bible in talking that way to me becausehe was holding a Protestant Bible and not a Catholic Bible.

Right a somewhat similar situation with interpretation occurs in Christianity, which goes further to mainline Islam also with authority.
