Catholic Christianity
Orthodox Christianity
Protestant Christianity
---------------------- Christianity Group ---
Judaism
---------------------- Other Group ------
moderate Islam
---------------------- Other Group ------

Christianity is the first Group and of course inside Christianity, we prefer Catholicism to be the highest one, and then Christian, Judaism, and Islam has the same root of originality..., whereas Buddhism is another separate root (there are no linkage with those 3 groups)

I agree that religion that worship One Eternal God should be in a higher form of others, but in case of their "social teachings" (not who worship who) but in a more 'human interaction' philosophy, Buddhism has a good spot on that, although worship many gods indeed doesn't reflect love God above all else ...

And, when I see Islam, their way in doing shalat (prayer), bend their body until their forehead reach the floor, and when I try to do this in adoration room (a room which The Blessed Sacrament placed at), I feel more 'something', feel more closer and peace to God..., and then they do shalat 5 times a day, to be honest, their culture of prayer, inspire me to be more diligent while praying , so I think Islam has a good spot on 'physical' how to pray form.
