Christianity is also a bogus religion

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: CHRISTIANS NEVER KILLED ANYONE TO CONVERT THEM!

Submitted by Peter (Australia), May 10, 2007 at 23:03

Stephen Phillips you are so unbelievably misguided. Christians never killed anyone to convert them? You can't be serious! Ever hear of the Inquisition? The Crusades? Oh, but wait! They weren't 'true Christians'. 'Most people don't bother to find out what a real Christian is' you say. Well then, tell us, just what IS a 'real Christian'? How are they differentiated from all of those 'false Christians'?

Have you even bothered to read the entire (Christian) Bible, by the way, including the Book of Joshua? I'll tell you a little about it. It is basically about how God's 'chosen people' (a tribal god who practices favouritism - what a joke) commands (not requests, by the way, but COMMANDS) those favourites of his to exterminate all the inhabitants of the land of Canaan. An angry, jealous, genocidal psychopath is the god you worship. The Old Testament, of which the Book of Joshua is a part, is accepted by ALL Christian denominations as being an essential part of their canon, and yet, whenever the atrocities of this same Old Testament are pointed out to them (of which there are too many to list here), they just try to avoid the issue by attempting to change the subject, or, they try to justify those atrocities by, for example, pointing out how 'bad' the hapless victims of Israelite genocide were, and so, therefore, they deserved it. For example, they may have been 'bad' because they worshipped false gods. Is there any god that isn't false by the way? They ALL are.

Enough of this!
