    But Islam certainly isn't trying to spread into Europe, as so many Americans seem to think, and the only advances it has made have been through small immmigration floes, like refugees or migrant workers, and they don't amount to anything like colonisation. More importantly, Islam doesn't factor into the reason why some Muslims come to Europe -- so I'd say that, whether Islam is growing or not, it's certainly not expanding into Europe.
    yes, yes, good point; Muslims would never attempt to impose any kind of Islamic rules on the public life of Europe.

    Christianity in my opinion. Taking into account its history and how it is in modern days.
    It is still very much a religion that seeks to spread throughout the world only this time instead of its main tool of expanding being war and colonialism/slavery (In Africa especially), it uses other methods such as in Africa by handing out medicine, food but with it a Bible. It's missionary and encouragement of it included, which isn't really found amongst Muslims or Islam. We don't do missionary work

    Isn't it pretty obvious that Jehova's Witnesses are the most pushy of any religion? They are unrelenting... it isn't even close.

    With regards to the thread... Islam is more likely to kill you and Christianity is more likely to love you.

    Oh, please, come up with something better than that. If you want examples of how bad religious extremists CAN be, I'll match you on both sides. How's Jim Jones and his cult doing, then?

    The point is, there are extremists from both beliefs, but the governments of our respective nations aren't bowing down to those extremists, and they never will.

    It's pretty obvious that Islamic extremists will resort to killing far more that Christian extremists...

    that's correct. Muslims are instead still into the slavery side of things. So much less pushy than handing someone a copy of the Bible along with free food and medical care

    they killed themselves. and they did it in relatively small numbers. care to talk about the body count that Islamist fundamentalism has racked up in the last 10 years alone?

    The point is, there are extremists from both beliefs, but the governments of our respective nations aren't bowing down to those extremists, and they never will.
    yes, the governments of the West would never do such a thing as bow down before extremists, noooooo.....

    hey, Michael Savage, is he allowed in Britain these days?

    that Geert Wilders guy, he been in the courtroom for anything in particular recently?
