    Again, your comparison has no meaning. Unless you mean that because Christianity had violence in its past, it can never take a position of superiority against a violent religion? That argument limits a religion or other entity to its lowest point and never gives it any credit for advancing past its nadir.

    Why you continue to embarass yourself by giving me and others opportunities to point out your ignorance is beyond me
    Christianity is peaceful now? I am not sure I would go that far and if it is? Then it is not really Christianity since it is not a religion that was built on peace. Maybe it should be re-named. lol

    That is a matter of viewpoint. 1000 years from now someone could come up with a holy book everyone believes in, which says the Holocaust was just... would that make it right?

    The religion has been effectively hijacked by the radical portion and preachers of hatred. That is now the mainstream. Its very similar to the threat posed 70 years ago by Nazism, and we will eventually have to deal with it in a similar manner or accept defeat by it.
    Every religion is full of extreme people and that would include the X-tian Religion.

But that's besides the point. Extreme Islam is no Better then Extreme Christianity. There are elements within christianity that would love to see us in a theocracy that would be brutal, if not more brutal then countries like Saudi Arabia. But alas, let us all come together to condemn this heinous act against a child, and leave the "this religion is more violent then the other" crap out of it.

    Peace!

    The difference would be, if a christian committed terrorist actions, other christians would stand up and say that those jackasses were crackpots who did not represent their religion.

    They would be condemning the terrorist actions as well as the people who committed them. I don't see a lot of this comming from the worldwide muslim community.
    Then you must not be living in the Real World.

    If it was not wrong nor evil why do so many modern Christians shy away from the OT and say you should ignore the OT and live by the NT? If it was just and right then why ignore it now??

    Do not make me break out examples of just how wrong the OT was. That will not be pretty.

    How is it a matter of viewpoint when the Bible explains how those who were to be judged and killed can escape their fate? The Old Testament has many passages that reveal God's heart for repentance of the wicked so that they might not die and be judged.

    Because many modern Christians are unwilling to defend truth and conform to the world.

    You can break out examples, but I could easily refute them when put into context and post verses that show the nature of God's heart and His Mercy from the Old Testament.

    Well what about Joshuas conquest of Canaa? It was right or wrong, essentially whole-sale genocide of entire cities. Woman and children were destroyed too, I bet not even all the children were "wicked" or "evil" isn't all killing... killing? I mean if you're against abortion why was it right for Joshua to kill woman and children?

    Yes... some people were burning American flags and cheering in the streets that 9/11 had happened. But not everyone, and besides there are even Americans who love the fact 9/11 happened.



    Wow. A group of less than 100 people. Thats who you want to compare it to?

    Little Green Footballs - London Muslims Celebrate 9/11

    Palestinians celebrating Obama's election. No wait, it was 9/11.

    YouTube - Muslims Celebrating 9/11

    YouTube - Palestinians celebrating the fall of the twin towers on 911

    How many more examples do you need that laughbly dwarf that little group you displayed?

    He (who was without sin) did not then pick up a stone.

    You equate all religions as equally barbaric, but this is like comparing a teddy bear to a grizzly bear.

    One is loving. The other isn't.
