Christians killing unbelievers

Reader comment on item: The United States Government, Still the Patron of Islam
in response to reader comment: Christians do advocate killing unbelievers

The main point that is missing from your post is the fact that Christians killing unbelievers pretty much stopped by the turn of the century, if not before. There might have been isolated pockets in the past centuries but that is the point. You are comparing an old (and of course repulsive and horrific) practice that has not been part of Christian belief for centuries. The Christians took to prosyltyzing instead, and other than being very annoying, not harmful to your health.

Muslims, on the other hand, are commiting murder in the name of Islam everywhere around the world today, not centuries ago, That is the main difference and you should be willing to acknowledge it. We cannot undo what has happened in the past, and there is no justification for it, but until it becomes a thing of the past in Islam as well, there is plenty to worry about.
