Lack of honesty? How about and let's be honest about the CAPABILITY of both Islam and Chritisnity. Both have the capability to be good or bad depending on the interpretation of it.
It is DISHONEST to say ISLAM is a violent religion when we have PEACEFUL Muslims able to practice it, just as it is DISHONEST to say Christianity has ONLY had a history of peace. Both religions have proven that they can be good or bad depending on the followers. It isn't the religion that is the problem, it's the interpretation of the religions.
