So you mean to say that majority of christians do not believe that Bible is not literal word of God. It is very relieving to the world indeed. But you seem to highlight words and actions of miniscule minority of muslims who take quranic words out context and interpret literally, many of whom are paid agents of CIA and Mossad. Will you dispute the fact the Bin Laden was brought to Afghanistan and armed to fight soviets by CIA. Most of his Jihadists disciples were recruited by CIA to fight soviets. Your media make mountain out of mouse.

But real tragedy world face is the fact that the minority you say that interpret Bible as literal word of God. Unfortunately this minority has control of stock pile of worlds most lethal weapons. The hardcore evangelicals in the tea partiers believe bible literally. They have even reencated biblical life in multimillion dollar theme park where Dinosaurs share space with biblical personalities, as according them world is only 6000 years old. They also believe that for Rapture to happen world should be engulfed in Tribulations of extreme terror. If these were some cult in the fringe of chrisian world, we may be able to sleep in peace. But these are the people that control the world. Bush declared crusade against muslims as he claimed he was getting message from the heavens, as a result up to a million people died in Iraq which was in retaliation of 9/11, a country with no relation with it, based on a lie of WMD. Jews in Jerusalem will remember crusade as an unparalleled cruelty in the human history. These and the numerous pogroms in Europe are not Old Testament stories. Srebrenisca massacres and violence happening all around the world today are not past mistakes of the church.

Christians claim to disown the brutality of old testament stories and say they believe in love and pardon. But i have never heard of anybody calling to pardon Bin Laden. The evangelicals even justify Hiroshima and Nagasaki and even contemplate nuking Iran. Majority of evangelicals and even secular christians justify drone massacres as majority women and children killed for being in the vicinity of "suspected" "terrorists" are collateral damage and necessary for their country to be safe. No christian love or compassion seen here. But they are busy putting up posters calling muslims as savages over New York subways. Are these expression of christian love. I would like to believed that these are minority fringe elements. But the fact that terrifies me and the world is that these are most powerful men with stock pile of nukes, chemicals and biologicals and have proved that they can use them on civilians like in Hiroshima and Vietnam and now they are contemplating another apocalyptic war in Iran. If you think that bible promotes peace and quran is violent then rather than advising me please ask the evangelicals in US to stop reading quaran and read bible instead.
