    One made war, the other made peace.
    One taught vengence, the other taught forgiveness.
    One had people killed, the other healed.
    One kept sex slaves, the other didn't.
    One divided the world into two warring camps, the other authored the golden rule.

    So, yes the difference is 180 degrees, and more and more Muslims are harking back to the times and ways of Mohamed, while more and more Christians are ignoring the **** in the OT and trying to live by the NT.

    What did I get wrong?
    They're just literary characters, nothing else. The truth is, christianity embedded itself in every brutal aristocracy in Europe for centuries, all at the same time. As they fought each other, the nobles were patronized by the church and the peasants were slaughtered intermittently for their entertainment. There is NO high ground in claiming that Jesus was a peace-nick when his followers have been war-obsessed or that Muhammad was a slave owner when christians were slave owners too. . The example of Jesus has never been followed so talking about who he was is irrelevant to our modern world.

    That's what you get wrong, your understanding of where Mr holy britches has gotten us. It wasn't until we agreed NOT to make religion the most important thing that we learned to live more peacefully with each other. If Muslims do the same, they'll have a similar result.

    "Just literary characters"???? That's almost too absurd for words, so all I can do is simply repeat (for the final time) that those two "literary characters" are supposed to set the example that defines their religion. You know that, yet you try to pass it off as irrelevant. Absurd. Anyway, enjoy the final word, cuz you have the floor. Bye.
    See something, say something, get called an Islamophobe.

    Dude, we're two vegetarians arguing about which brand of bacon is worse for you. In the end, we agree that they both are not healthy. That's the important thing.
