Reader comment on item: "Islam" Does Not Mean "Peace"

Submitted by Mike (United States), Jul 6, 2007 at 10:39

Seamus>> What does that mean? New Testament? Is that the book that caused so much suffering and pain over the last two thousand years? The book of the Inquisition and the crusades and the pogroms, the book that caused the deaths of six milion in the last century and many more before that? How many did you kill for christ? Lets see, was that the book that caused my own folk six hundred years of slavery under the English? Why yes, I do believe it was.

First of all, sorry it took me so long to respond--Now, how is the NT the book of the inquisition, crusades, pogroms, and the book that caused your folk six hundred years of slavery? How did the NT cause 6 million deaths and suffering and pain for 2ooo years?
