"I wish people would get off of this "Christian crimes" nonsense. IT DOESN'T EXIST"

first,to deny a thing doesnt make it true.. secondly, Yes, crimes were commited in the name of christianity and to prove my words go read the history of the christians wars in africa and bosnia not to mention afganistan,palastin,lebanon and iraq which no one cares about the people who are killed because they are muslims.

and I want to make it clear that I didnt say the religion christianity it self advocate killing people like alot of other people here said about Islam ..NOT all christians fall in the catagory I am speaking about in my post.......I never read the bible so I cant be sure about if it does or not advocate violence. I read quran and it does'nt advocate violence, some would say the opposite ,so what you should do ??.. you dont believe either one's words .. you go check by your self from the right resources..Quran for muslims and the bible for christians.

""Most people don't bother to find out who or what a real Christian is. Most people refuse to take responsibility for their own actions. They just want a convenient scapegoat to blame for all of society's ills. And why aren't any muslims listing the multiple crimes of Islam throughout it's history? I know why, because Muslims are ALWAYS RIGHT and everybody else is the infidel. Grow up""

..I can say the exact words you said about Islam being blamed for everything and westren people who some of them are christians think that they are ALWAYS RIGHT. and for the crimes they did throw the history that they dont take responsibility for.. exactly the same.

""The reason why the Arab world is so messed up is because the Arab mind is so messed up""

WOW.. you are really rational thinking person,arent you??

""just because Islam is the fastest growing religion on earth doesn't make it right.""

""They've been brainwashed from birth, or deceived into Islam or it was forced on them before they were old enough to choose. I could stop being Christian today if I wanted to. But most Muslims remain Muslim because they're afraid of the consequences of denouncing Islam""

but why is Islam is the fastest growing religion if it is that clearly violence and horrible as a religion,it doesnt make sense if Islam is really really bad then why people who were not muslims and didnt been forced to it convert to Islam??and they are a good people who a lot of them are western people who live in democracy countries.. are they brainwashed too ..or most people are evil in nature so they are drown to Islam??? and about muslims being forced to Islam before they even choose .. well I dont see christian people tell their children: ok you are young now so you dont have to come with us to the church.. of course muslim children will be muslim at the time and christian children will be christian at the time. how an individual or a group practice a religion in a certain way doesnt nessecary speaks fairly about the religion it self..

""When I see freedom of choice exhibited in Islam then I may give it a bit of respect""

am not sure how to answer this .. it depends in how you define freedom...in islam as I know it,there are limits in thing in which they may cause harm more than help..and if your words is from what you saw women in afganistan or so,then again the way some one practice a religion doesnt nessesary speaks fairly of the religion it self. and where do you get your information about islam?? from your media which come from countries that are politicaly our enemies..
