What I'm saying is that if faith alone is a virtue, what basis is left for a Christian to criticize a faithful person of another religion on?

I'd say on the basis of that religion being false, though I wouldn't use the term "criticize"...faith in something false isn't much of a virtue. If I have faith in something absolutely false, and you know the absolute truth about the matter, wouldn't you seek to correct me and turn me to the truth?

I thought you were saying that faith is superior to reason, but now you're talking about objective truths?

I don't believe faith is "superior," but that's mostly because I believe that what we call "reason," is a product of faith anyways.

I agree with you there, actually.

Anselm used that argument with great effect, and in my mind is the best argument for God after the moral argument. Aquinas had a different take, but what did he know? :p Anselm and Aquinas rank up with my favorite philosophers though. Brilliant men.
