    What a selective recounting of history and modern events you've engaged in, Goshin. Maybe you aren't reading the right papers.
    I stand corrected, they both suck!

    And, there's more....

    Christian extremism in Africa is a very serious and growing problem. Uganda's laws, encouraged by American fundamentalists, that would make homosexuality punishable by death, are the tip of the iceberg.

    AFP: Kenya mob burns 15 women to death over witchcraft

    In Africa, at least, there is very little difference between the extremist Islamic and the extremist Christian.

    The claims made in the wikipedia piece are substantiated by links to reliable sources. Is that the best you can do?

    So, what Noam Chomsky says is important to you, now, is it?

    Is Islam less violent than Christianity?

    Funny, a small percentage of American Muslims actually commit horrible violent attrocities in the name of their religion. Additionally, a small percentage of American Christians actually commit horrible violent attrocities in the name of their religion.

    However strangely, either religion in 3rd world countries or areas where the society is extremely backwards when compared to modern western civilization, we see far more violence cropping up from the religions. Very similar to 500 or 900 years ago when the society of the western world was different then it is today with regards to violence as an answer.

    Obviously then the answer is the religion by itself is at fault, and not the notion of combining religion with an environment where people can use it to push for violent ends.

    Buddhism and Hinduism both have extensive scripture, actually. In Buddhism the scripture is called sutras or suttas depending on if they are written is Sanskrit or Pali respectively, and they read very much like the equivalent of the Bible, essentially dialogues between the Buddha and his disciples. Similarly, Hinduism has the Vedas and the Bhagavad Gita.
