    What I sincerely wonder is why this point continuously goes unnoticed.

    Why, oh why, would anyone be an apologist for the Crusades? You realize that's what you're doing, right? Think that over.

    The Crusades were a series of wars of aggression that were directly motivated by the Christian religion. You want to defend that?
    I am constantly amazed at how anti-Christians continually misrepresent historical events such as The Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition...

    Re: Which Religion is more "pushy?" Christianity or Islam?

    Well let's accept the fact that both have been mandated to spread the word of God.

    In history Christianity has been full of missionary work. But it was Islam that exploded out of the Arabian peninsula into the northern Balkans, east towards Afghanistan, and across northern Africa into Spain toppling empires along the way. During the Crusades, Christians went back into lost lands and fought with Muslims over what used to be Byzantine. After Christians lost the Crusades (and so did Arabs), the Ottoman Turks carried Islam into Europe as far north as Poland and on the door step of France. In fact, Prince Vlad III the Impaler (famous for inspiring the Dracula story for all you simpletons) is one character in history famous for fighting against the expansion of Islam into his territoriy. After a thousand years and a couple defeats at Vienna with the help of Poles, the Christian world finally managed to fight back the Islamic spread in what would become to be known as "Western Imperialism" thereby implying that the Muslim world are mere hapless victims. But the truth is that they are vgictims of their own aggressive culture and determination to conquer in the name of religion.

    Today, the Crescent and the Cross is no longer a featured source of friction. There is only the Crescent and the Western world. Islam continues to be "pushy."

    You could not be more incorrect in your implication that I am anti-Christian. I could not be more in favor of the Church. And it is in line with the Church's mission to repent for its own sins. The Crusades were a war of aggression, no bones about it, and would certainly be considered a war crime today. The Church has committed all manner of atrocities. To acknowledge it and make the Church account for it is hardly anti-Christian, it is healthy and necessary for the Church to account for its transgressions. Indeed, I would argue that to sweep it under the rug and be an apologist for the Church's bad behavior, as you are doing, is truly anti-Christian, because it is against the spirit of Christ's message of penitence and humility.

    Modern Christianity does not expand by the sword, or execute "heretics".

    Modern Islam does.

    How is modern Islam spreading with war? If you mean terrorists, I highly doubt the terrorists are attracting people to the religion... it's have the reverse effect

    Re: Which Religion is more "pushy?" Christianity or Islam?

    I didn't take this poll seriously so I voted for Christianity, just because Muslims don't go house to house in my neighborhood trying to convert people. I do have a Jewish friend, and some church is always trying to get her to go to their church and convert. It's kind of disrespectful if you ask me....

    I was recently having a conversation with a man about directions and the local area. I was trying to help and be friendly, and then a man in his party approached me... shook my hand and said, "Can I ask you a question?" And I said yes, and he asked me if I were a Christian...

    I just said I believed in god, because I didn't want any awkwardness... and that was all he wanted to know.

    What are you saying exactly? That Muslims are supporting wars inside those countries to spread Islam, or that terrorist acts are causing people to convert from Christianity to Islam in those countries?
