I thought this sentence from the second letter of Peter used as the second reading was very interesting:
Beloved: We did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we had been eyewitnesses of his majesty.That is a very strong claim. Obviously, no one has to believe it. I do.
But whether we choose to believe it or not, that sentence puts the claims of Christianity into an entirely different basket than any other religion.
And it does so to the point that, as the late Father Neuhaus used to say, it becomes reasonable to argue that Christianity is not a religion at all.
