Is it true as a generalization that Islam has been very successful in enforcing blasphemy laws since Islams inception? All religions have blasphemy "laws", no other gods, just have faith, god made it that way to question your faith....

I know there are many "sects" of Islam, however many of those sects were born at the time of the writing of the Koran; Shiite / Sunni division...

What (if anything) makes Christianity more susceptible to schism's, seems that adherence gets watered down with every split. Is it the fact that the "west" has separated the justice system/ politics from Christianity, limiting religion to moral authority alone?
